“For my Nieces, Ava and Maya. For the young Yvonne, for the now Yvonne and for the future Yvonne and all my homies.”
I have always been a person that fights for the Underdog because I am an underdog. I didn't have a Mother that supported me on the things I felt I needed support with, or made me feel safe as a kid. Had to be the protector in my family, that's what I thought in my head as a child. Felt like I was that dog that takes care of kittens that did not belong to her.
Anytime I see something I perceive as unfair, I want to fight. I am Mexican American, I am indigenous I am a woman, I am a darker-skinned Chicana. If someone tries to mess with any of me or my people, it's on.
I am here because I want to do something for people that can not do it for themselves, and this is at my core, as a woman.
