Description
I am a first year student and the Latina daughter of immigrants. Being at UCSD is a dream come true and a chance to show my parents that it was worth the struggle to come here.
I painted a piece that reflected how I felt early on in the quarter here at UCSD. I felt isolated here because it was a completely new environment and I didn't think I would find people I could relate to, as isolated as Blacks Beach. The trees and forest vibe of the campus was comforting until the chalk writings appeared reflecting Trump's hatred, that's when the campus felt truly dark at night. The place I found peace at was the Raza Resource Centro all this time because it felt so welcoming despite everything.
