Yahaira Sarahi Celis Garcia
That is what I was registered as at birth.
Yahaira, that is what most people call me.
A random name that my mother chose
But that I cherish.
And that is what matters.
Even though people disarrange the spelling,
It doesn’t bother me.
But then again, I ask myself,
“How can they misspell it..is it really that hard?”
It is not Jahaira
My middle name, Sarahi is also misspell most of the time.
Most people spell it without the H.
My name has the H and I proudly write it.
Both, my first and middle names have a variety of spellings.
I like my spelling because it is unique.
We are both unique.
And that uniqueness demonstrates my challenging life.
I simply see myself through the eyes of my names because they are different from the rest.
Celis was given from my dad.
I don’t talk to any of his hatred family.
Because they don’t even like me.
They are like snakes, trying to throw their venom.
Either way, it is not like I need them.
I have been able to live my life to the fullest, enjoying every little moment without them.
Even though I don’t talk to his family, we are still family and that can’t be change.
We are all connected like a spider web.
After all, I am thankful for him.
He has made me realize that those closer to you won’t always be there for you.
You have to learn to do stuff on your own like a baby.
Lastly, one of the most common Mexican last names, Garcia.
I inherited Garcia from my beautiful mother and grandma.
I also hope to inherit their power, hardwork, and determination.
My mom has worked,
since age six to be able to help her huge family.
After all the obstacles she has been through,
she manages to keep a smile in her face
and help others without expecting anything in return.
My grandma has had challenging situations with her health.
However, she has been as strong as a lion and has overcome everything.
Garcia for me is a close family that;
and gives the hand
to every individual.
Once again, Yahaira,
A person that knows what she is capable of doing and will keep shooting for more success.
A person that is willing to help others and appreciates friendship even if many others don’t. Yahaira Sarahi Celis Garcia, the name that will follow me everywhere I go.
