FIJ Quarterly - Summer 2022 Edition

Just Because By: Zoraida Ramirez Just because I am a mother I am not looking for a man’s help I am not irresponsible I am not what you think of me I am a caring, strong, and an independent mother Just because I am a Latina on welfare I am not using the government I am not a lazy person I am not what society claims me to be I am a dedicated mother trying to do all that I can to provide for my children Just because I am a high school drop out I am not less of a person I am not a low life I am not trying to be a statistic I am someone who is becoming a better version of myself, someone that my children and I can be proud of. A role model
