The Intersection of Identities: Latina, Veteran and Lover

The Intersection of Identities: Latina, Veteran and Lover

We left our countries of origin because we want a better quality of life for our families, friends and neighbors. We strive to create a just, caring and empathetic America. Our purpose is to shape our own future and to express ourselves freely while embracing our diverse identities. As a veteran who served to protect our freedoms, an immigrant who came to this country because of its unique promise of prosperity for those who work hard, and a bilingual woman who is ready to lead and serve the community with love, I am proud of my intersectionalities.
