Welcome to my blog!!
My name is Erica and I am a friendly gal that enjoys nature, family time, friend time, but most of all laughing time!! :)
This blog mostly documents my learning experience from senior year! :)
I originally started this blog for my AP English Literature and Composition class but have made it my own! You will most likely see post about my interest, opinions, and English course! Senior year is over so my post will be on my interest and opinion only.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.

THE NIGHTMARE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
This "DREAM" that so many Latinos yearn for and would leave everything behind for has become more and more impossible. The conditions that these people have to go through are heart breaking, inhumane, and yet they move forward...They are the definition of determination, persistence, and resilience...When crossing the border from Central America to Mexico and then the United States, or from Mexico to the United States their stories go unheard of, their bodies lost on the way, and eventually they become invisible...They are LOS INVISIBLES.
A special thanks to Marc Silver & Gael Garcia Bernal for the documented videos that open our eyes to the immigrants' stories.
