As a child of immigrants it was not unusual for me to hear the stories of my parents and the poverty they faced growing up in Guatemala. My mother has a sixth grade education and left her home at 11 to work because her family could not support her. My father had to take care of himself from a very young age as well, in addition to helping to provide for his 9 siblings as much as he knew how at such a young age. I never really understood the depths of my parents plight and accomplishments until later in my adulthood. When I began to reconnect with what has always been there I realized that the stories from which I was born are so much richer than I ever imagined.
What was an idea born out of frustration at the unfairness and injustice others faced - took on new meaning as I raised my own daughters. 'Be the change you want to see' could no longer be just something I repeated to them, it has to be something we live.
