Apoderate de tu historia

!Ay mi negra!

tu tono de piel cuenta una historia

entre carabelas, mares y olas.

De un tierra a otra,

tu piel, tu sonrisa y tu cabello se mezcla con la nuestra.

Siglos han pasado permitiendote ahora

apoderarte tu propia historia.


¡Ay mi negra!

Sueña que nada nunca te detenga

camina con la frente en alto

deja que tu belleza sea razon de admiración

y mientras los demas te observan

tu continua escribiendo tu propia historia.


¡Ay mi negra!

nunca olvides el poder que el tono de tu piel te entrega.

Sigue contando tu historia,

entre carabelas, mares y olas

pero siendo esta vez tú

quien dirige la dirección de tus belas.

    For me being a writer has always been a way to express myself and provide a voice to my thoughts. I’m a Salvadoran woman who has alway dreamt about one day having a chance to express herself and make a difference in the world; even before coming to UUEE. But I won’t lie, when I got for the first time into a classroom in a United States high school I couldn’t see myself doing any of this stuff, not without first going through a huge change, but now seven years late, been so close to get graduate from college I got the chance to work with the Latinitas team as a writer in Spanish language and it feels like the world has paid me off for all the effort that one day I did by not giving up my dreams.
