Who Am I?

By Naomi Alfonso  |   From : Miramar, FL   |   School : Everglades High School

I am from uneven roads

From running on the fields and tanning by the water

I am from the place you wish to vacation at

Beautiful, clear, blue, beaches

I am from palm trees

Green, tall, and healthy

I am from eating 12 grapes on New Years and big noses

From Darlene and Jose

I am from where we can never be on time to events and eating rice and beans with every meal

From being told if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say it at all and treat other how you want to be treated

I am from being baptized to drinking and eating the body of Christ at mass

I’m from Hialeah, Florida while my ancestors are Dominican, Cuban, and Puerto Rican

Mangu, rice and beans, and pan Cubano con pastelitos

From my grandfather escaping Cuba and my grandmother leaving her family and children in the Dominican Republic.
