“Si se puede” the famous quote.

Elaine Gastelum,
Calexico, CA.

My name is Elaine Gastelum and I’ve been raised in a small town called Calexico. Calexico is right next to the border going to Mexico in a city called Mexicali. My town is full of Mexican-Americans that have been raised by Mexican and/or Mexican-American parents. We’ve been taught about our famous Mexican-American labor leader Cesar Chavez who was a civil rights activist. His most famous quote that everyone has grown up to is “Si se puede!”
