My Mexicanness doesn’t tell my narrative

Arely Herrera,

One of my professors of the “(De)constructing Race in America” course I am currently taken has embedded the importance of having your own “narrative” in my mind. Now, for me, it is always important to look at the history and re-write what my race means to me. “Mexican” doesn’t completely describe where I or my people came from.
