Throughout my school years I have struggle myself with people putting labels on me: I’m the SPED kid, I’m not able to do this or hearing I can’t do that or complete a task because of my challenges with ADHD. I also experienced recently cultural discrimination at school by peers because of being Latina, because of my parents immigrants roots, or because I’m an English Learner still at school. When I worked on this piece, I just wanted to let my feelings and emotions out, and let the world and myself know that I’m free of labels, I can be more than 1 thing, I can be so many things and I can be good at them. I’m aware of my challenges and labels don’t define me.
