To continue the theme of cultural borders, I would like us to read an essay by Mexican-American artist and storyteller Mireya S. Vela. In her work, she discusses how growing up in an abusive household and as an introvert cultural impacts how she navigates the relationships with her neighbors.
Carefully read through “Privilege” by Mireya S. Vela. Read it slowly! Read it twice! Annotate it!
