UEI West Covina
Although I’m not all that well with essays, I thought I’d give it a try. I’ll be talking about Equality and Human Rights. With myself being a victim of hate crimes and discrimination for being openly gay, throughout my life I was scared of being who I was because I wasn’t sure of who I was at the time; I was confused.
As a black woman growing up in the United States, social injustice is something that has always been present in my life. From being listed as “negro” on my birth certificate, to being stood-up at my senior prom by my Greek boyfriend at the time whose family deemed that I, as a black girl, was not a suitable date for such an occasion.
