Dear Rafael,
I am impressed by your post, “Become Who You Are” because you have put in so much effort to learn and preserve much about Latino history. I feel like people should want to know about their history as well.
One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “Born to 1st generation Dominican and Salvadoran parents and forever inspired by their perseverance to work and family, I uphold the legacy of resistance associated with the ancestors of my parents”. I think this is really cool because many people wouldn’t go through the trouble of preserving their family’s history.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the insight into your personal life and your heritage was interesting. Seeing how you overcame your struggles to achieve what you wanted is inspiring.
