"Being a Texan means being proud of my diverse ethnic background. I am a first generation Mexican American Texan. My grandparents brought their families to this great state more than 30 years ago, and every day I am grateful that they took that bold decision to immigrate from Mexico to the El Paso, TX region. The negative rhetoric aimed against immigrants and Latinxs like myself and my family is at an all-time high. I believe that through my first Amendment right to free speech and freedom to protest, it is my duty to speak out against the hatred of minority groups in this state, and at the same time, it allows me to honor my family who has worked hard every day to give me the opportunity to be able to go away from home and find my voice and my passion." #ThisTexan
