La Raza.

I can't imagine life without culture. There's something great about feeling united with a group of people because of common ancestry and heritage. Mexican food is simply the best, there's a reason for it's wild popularity. I missed it while I was in New York. My mom is an amazing cook, as most Mexican mothers are, and it's comida Méxicana 24/7 at my house during the summer. Visitors always welcome. Mi casa es su casa.

Soccer is king in my culture and on Saturday, Mexico faced the USA in the Cope de Oro. I root for the motherland. I grew up watching Mexican soccer with my dad & I don't deal with any kind of inner struggle when deciding which team to root for. Mexico won, just in case you're wondering 4-2 & my all time favorite player, Geovani Dos Santos, scored the best goal of the game.




That's popcorn covered with Tapatío hot sauce. It's a favorite snack of mine.


There may not be farms in Compton, but that doesn't keep people from riding their horses.


My dad ALWAYS reps BYU.

All of my ,
