My name is Esther Diaz and I hate discrimination. I born in Dominican Republic. I have lived in Jarabacoa, Santo Domingo, La Vega and  Santiago. I am 14 years old. I live in New York. Inside the school, I like to play volleyball and basketball. Also I like math tutorial. I like to outside of school to the park with my best friend Lizamar. I like to run in the park. I am  particularly good at Global History and math and I got that by studying and reading and seeing videos. My plan for the future is to finish my high school and college. My dream is to be a lawyer and also a teacher.

My life is normal but difficult because some people discriminate against immigrants just because they are immigrants. My family structure change is negative and positive too because my father has a better job and more money but negative because some of my family is in Jarabacoa including my mom. I miss them all. I feel strange because English is other language and it’s not mine.

There was a time in my life when i injustice when I was 10 year old because my brother doing something bad and brother was  said that I was to blame when it was not true. In my opinion, this was unjust because I was blamed for something I did not do but then my brother said that he did it so it’s okay.

    I am confused by your post, “Don’t say it just feel it” because I do not know that this tear represents for you, but for me, I can say that it can be an emotion, a feeling or a sadness, but all you feel, you have to tell someone, Do not hide Our feelings, whatever.

    some people discriminate against immigrants just because they are immigrants.It feels bad when they talk about you for being an immigrant.
