and my identity has been changing for the better and worst of me.
I was never rejected not because I have a disability,
I just didn't want to talk to people in high school.
because I was shy, and anti-social and I wanted to be by myself.
I have a story to tell about myself and my surroundings,
I keep it real about myself as a human being
and I have many things to control myself and not to worry
what other people think of me.
- Lenin Dominguez
