My road in life has taken me all over.
First I was taken from my native country to the USA to meet up with my father when I was 4.
My mother crossed The Rio Grand with 4 kids. My sister and I were crossed first. On April 1981.
We arrived to an apt complex with different people. Different from anything I had ever seen.
Played with Africans, Chinese, Arabs, Anglos. Nobody understood each other but we played fairly well.
As a teenager I had to choose between Mexican Americans or Mexicans. I had to prove myself.
Got involved in gangs. Went to jail. Got deported. Left my son behind. And continued to mess up in Mex.
Grandma died. It was devastating. I was told I was important. Asked to teach English. So I did.
I was given a chance to teach at a school. Studied grammar. Now I have my own English School.
