An exploration on the complexity of Mexican identity and what a name holds
Internally screaming at just how perfect you capture my feelings in writing! The in betweenness of being Mexican is so complicated and I can’t explain the joy I feel being validated in this experience!
This resonated so much for me! Congrats on a first post back!
This resonated so much. (Also, the meme about the family tree made me laugh because it was so familiar and real. I hated family tree assignments at school!) We have a similar name-change in our family, which has made researching really difficult. Sending solidarity as you navigate this stuff — you are not alone. ❤️
Amazing, so proud of you! I’ll be here to read more of your soul
