“We're the unknown Americans, the ones no one even wants to know, because they've been told they're supposed to be scared of us and because maybe if they did take the time to get to know us, they might realize that we're not that bad, maybe even that we're a lot like them. And who would they hate then?”
Cristina Henriquez, The Book of Unknown Americans

“I felt the way I often felt in this country - simultaneously conspicuous and invisible, like an oddity whom everyone noticed but chose to ignore”
Cristina Henriquez, The Book of Unknown Americans

“You shouldn't want to be like everyone else. Then you wouldn't be like you.”
Cristina Henriquez, The Book of Unknown Americans
