Hispanic Or Not I Achieve Dreams

Odali Ayon Rodriguez,
Tucson, AZ.

Just a quick message: In our society of modern day times I am immensely judged for being Hispanic and a women. As children we are always encouraged to dream big and live towards those big dreams. However, as I grew older there were a lot of individuals (teachers, friends, family members, colleagues, etc.) that looked down upon me and tried to discourage my dreams, whether it was graduating high school, going to a university college, or anything in general. They discriminated me because of my race and economic situations in my personal life that they thought I wasn’t capable of getting higher onto a platform. There comment were derogatory and insulting that at times I would let it bring me down, however I was determined to prove a point and teach a lesson.
