Title:The Stem (Original)
Author(s):Villanueva, Jennifer
Subject(s):Mexican-American
Latina
Identity
Culture
Poetry
Abstract:This piece, “The Stem,” covers the idea of being Latina, but mainly identifying Mexican-American. The main idea is not being able to fit in with Americans and Mexicans because of the distinction from being part of both identities. I write about the idea of these two places being so unfamiliar because of wanting to fit in where I was born, and still trying to catch up with my roots. The part that talks about, “Who do you stand with?” is the point in which I feel people will make you choose one identity over another. In this piece, I use the petals to demonstrate my American identity and the roots to identify my Mexican identity.
