â€œYou know when we was younger — itâ€™s crazy though itâ€™s so true, and Iâ€™ll never forget this since my mom reminds me also — we asked her, â€˜When were Puerto Ricans born? When did Puerto Ricans come about?â€™ And sheâ€™s like, â€˜What are we articulate about?â€™ And we was like, â€˜Like when did it happen, was it in like a ’50s?â€™ And she was like, â€˜What are we saying?!â€™ And we was like, â€˜Well since we donâ€™t see us anywhere. we donâ€™t see us on a TV, we donâ€™t see us in a cinema we love. When did it happen?!â€™ And sheâ€™s like, â€˜Weâ€™ve always been around and we will tell those stories one day.â€™â€

We all wish a same things. But itâ€™s good to have those faces on shade since afterwards we belong. We have desire, we have drive, we have power, we know a energy during a immature age. we wish to give my children energy and let them know theyâ€™re not singular by anything — really not by a images that weâ€™re given each day.â€
