Did you know that my chosen Identities are being male and that is true because I identify as a Male. An assigned Identity of mine is being Mexican because of my family. When I was smaller I never knew what being a Male or Female really meant, so my understanding of that is that I didn’t pay attention to what happened to Females from past events (Not being able to have a job, vote, etc). Also how being Mexican is not at the same power level as White people, yet we still do much more than them. So my childhood wasn’t exactly simple but i’m excited to say i’m proud for being me. Based on my life experiences I  say my life has been impacted by these Identities.
