Youth In Focus Amayrani S
When I think of empowerment, I think of my family, where I’m from. With my family, I feel confident that I can do anything. My parents give me hope and strength. I also think of my roots. I’m not ashamed of where I’m from. My people are very hard working and strong. I have the power to do whatever I set my mind to. Every time I put on traditional Mexican clothes, I feel like I was meant to do great things in life because I feel like it was who I was meant to be.
