My Truths

By: Wilbert Bernal

When people look at me, they see a person with black hair and dark brown eyes. Many people assume that I don’t have papers and I’m not legal. I see myself as a person that can do any work and be a person that can succeed. I have chosen to include pesos because that’s the kind of money that people use in Mexico. Many people may believe that I’m just a beaner but I’m actually a proud Mexican. I also included baby pictures for people to see what I was like when I was little and to show how much I love my family and how they have supported me.
