My American story started when I obtained my dual-citizenship at the American embassy in Monterrey. Stuck in an economic limbo between work and no-work, my family had moved between the United States, and back Mexico four times by my first year of High School- always living in a home that did not belong to us. I remember a very special Saturday when seven year old me was taken to the California Science Center, and I was first introduced to what would become my fascination. So, when I was given a choice between staying in Mexico with my grandparents or returning to the United States to continue my studies there, I had already decided. Today, my family has left our early poverty, and we are all finally together in LA. I look forward to fulfilling my goal of studying here in the U.S, and doing my part to better it.
