United States, Fifth Grade
My dad was born in the United States; my mom was born in Mexico. And then my dad went to Mexico, and then he got married, and then they went to the United States, and then that's where I was born. And I speak Spanish.
Sometimes they think I was born in Mexico, but I was really born in the United States. That's why some teachers think, like, I was born in Mexico. Well, when I grow up, that depends, like to see if I want to be a fireman or a football player.
This picture, this is my dad when he's in Puerto Rico. There's my dad right there, with the gray shirt. And this is me when I was a baby. And this is my mom and dad now.
