We are first year college students at John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York (CUNY).  Our families, heritages, and global communities reach across the world: FROM Honduras, Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico, United States, Brasil, Peru, Chile, and Palestine… TO… the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Puerto Rico, Jordan, Italy, Dominican Republic, Colombia, China, and Guyana.

 

 

We are studying issues of Latin@s and justice because, as minorities, we need to recognize when we are being wronged, why, and how to change things.  We want to apply what are learning in the real world.

 

 

We want to live in a world where

we can all be treated equally and given equal opportunities to achieve success

every voice is heard

there is no racial profiling

equality is always present

las personas se respeten y que tengan las mismas oportunidades

no one must still face discrimination

we are grateful for what we have

everyone has the right to love who they want

matriarchy is common everywhere

no one is afraid to be themselves.

 

 

As college students, we aspire to

be people of impact and influence

become the kind of people others can admire and be motivated by

learn the things we may be ignorant of

give back to our communities

do the things we love and succeed.

 

 

As writers and multimedia composers, we want our voices to

be heard and inspire those around us

stand out and help others have their voices heard

make a difference and change the world for the better.
