Sergio Troncoso
“I’ll miss everybody too. But I’ll be back for Christmas, and for the summer. Abuelita, it’s the best school in the United States.”

“You’ll come back a different person. Worse, you won’t want to come back after you see everything out there. Why would you want to come back to this horrible nada?”

“Abuelita, that’s not true. I’ll be back. I’ll call you every week, on the weekends when it’s cheaper. I’ll learn so much. Nobody at Ysleta has ever been to Harvard, at least no one the teachers can remember.”

“It’s a great honor, m’ijo. We know that. I’m sure everyone in Ysleta is proud of you. But this is who you are,” she said, for a moment scanning the dark night air and the empty street. A cricket chirped in the darkness. “God help you when you go to this ‘Havid.’ You will be so far away from us, from everything you know. You will be alone. What if something happens to you? Who’s going to help you? But you always wanted to be alone; you were always so independent, so stubborn.”

“Like you.”
Sergio Troncoso, From This Wicked Patch of Dust

Raquel Cepeda
“Foisting an identity on people rather than allowing them the freedom and space to create their own is shady.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina
