Hearing my name Enrique Blanco, makes me have a vision of darkness, feeling the chills through my body knowing that someone is calling for my attention, something important that is needed from me, something serious going on, but people who call me by my name is because they don’t know me really well, or because they know calling me by my name is important and respectful.
I share ¨Chito¨ with my friends and peers, it is important because I want my peers and friends to call me by my nickname. It will show that my friends and peers know what to call me, whenever something is up and it is important they will call me by my name. When family, and loved ones say ¨Enrique¨ it gives me a feeling of electricity going through my body trying to find that light bulb and give light in the dark, waking me up knowing that whenever Enrique makes poor choices, makes mistakes, the power and honor of having that name brings the best out of me and rise back up to show who I truly am.
Enrique Blanco it’s not just it, it’s a junior, it is the name of my father and I want to represent it well on who I am and what I am capable of. I see my name as being dark, but there is always a torch inside, a bright light with fire on it, that brings hope. Enrique Blanco Jr, it rises me up from the ground, breaking through all the darkness, but not without the light (JR) , like plants breaking through concrete to give life, but not without roots , and bring happiness to the ones around it. Hearing Enrique Blanco Jr did this, didn’t do that, feeling the ground trembling giving me signs that I am doing things wrong. Feeling the honor, the relief, the excitement, the love, the success people were not able to visualize on what Enrique Blanco JR had and who he really is.
My name gives me the motivation that keeps me going, it inspires me to prove others wrong and represent the Junior. Having “Chito” on my side as if it were to be the right hand of Enrique Blanco JR and the success both have. Giving light to the dark, to shine up in the sky and be successful. Its if it were to be two people, one shining and one losing by believing that there is darkness, therefore, there will always be light on both sides. There will always be light in the dark. That light will never go away, the torch of light will be passed onto the next, so wherever there is darkness, there will always be light.Tags: #Don't Judge #HaterGonnaHate #LoveME Life Academy of Health and Bioscience NameMemoir
