Mexican really? You dont look mexican.

Priscilla Esparza,
Riverside, CA.

Living life as a Mexican American is best described by Abraham Quintanilla,”Being Mexican American is tough. Anglos jump all over you if you don’t speak English Perfectly, Mexicans jump all over you if you don’t speak Spanish perfectly.” “we got to prove to the Mexicans how Mexican we are and we got to prove to the Americans how American we are. We got to be MORE Mexican than the Mexicans and MORE American than the Americans; both at the same time! Its exhausting!”and it truly is exhausting.
