Growing up in a seasonal migrant working family has had its challenges. My mother worked along side my grandparents in the fields long before I was born. Watching my mother struggle all on her own to raise her 3 children has taught me so much. I have lived to see the constant devotion she gives to us and I want nothing more than to give her back that same effort. I have watched the constant struggles that my family has gone through. I decided at a very young age that working in the fields is not something i wish to do. I am attending Western Michigan University in order to create a better future for myself and my family.
