I, Too, Am America
Gabriela Mendoza

I, too, am America
I am the bilingual sister.
People underestimate me,
Think I won’t become someone
Important in life
Just because, yo soy hispana
Think I'm going to quit school.
I’m not going to
Let that get to me
Because I’m not going to
Give up instead I’m going
To put in more effort
Y voy a crecer más fuerte
I'll be someone,
Someone important in life
And they’ll see how beautiful being
The bilingual sister truly is.
