“The love and appreciation I have for my people, mi gente, my culture,

my roots, mis raices y mi patria and country!  ¡Aunque no nací en la isla,

la llevo en mi corazón! I feel that one's knowledge of identity and history is the foundation needed to succeed in life, especially for our youth! I am inspired to write for the ones who are coming after us.”
