Hi my name is Esperanza I am here to tell you about my adventure of coming from Mexico to America to work in the fields as a slave. This story tells you how I found hope in an unexpected place. Now without further ado let's start the story.
Esperanza! where are you? We need to get ready for your Quincinera! here at our big mansion.
I'm here Mama!
I am miserable.
Esperanza goes from a fine life to a life in rags because her dad dies. She and her mom fled their home in Mexico to go to America. They end up on a plantation doing slave labor.
It has been one year being a slave...
zzz... dreaming of being back home in the meadow with her grandmother
Esperanza! why are you here mija? Oh honey don't get upset just follow the pattern and let your fingers weave.
I'm here grandma! I'm here because I couldn't get the weaving pattern right.
I don't feel miserable anymore! ... because part of my family is by my side and I know everything will be ok.
Esperanza goes back to reality and is suddenly filled with a big warm wave of hope.
