It also shows how you like to play soccer and you try your best to let people know that mexicans are not bad people. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next I will comeback because your writing tells a really strong story.

      I am Enlightened by your photograph because its cool how you used photos in your shadow box which was a good thing to do. Another thing you used was a case of airpods which shows you like to listen to music. Your Mexican flag will show your with you being Mexican.
