one of the tensions that does come up with leaving home in particular is sort of feeling as though you're not gonna be tied to your cultural background and this is particularly point for me because I grew up in an area that was very Hispanic and it was very Mexican there was a big Mexican culture and there was even amongst my friends and my peers there was not a big culture of leading I have to say that most of my best friends and most my fellow students and like all my all my family they had him and in the United States was awesome California's small like a little pocket so because of that that was a bit of a concern and to be quite honest is followed me a little bit into college of me always thinking and questioning is this the best way to serve my community is the best this is the best way to stay true to who I was before but what I have realized especially in conversations with a lot of professionals now is that by leaving and getting this education I am able to acquire the skills and necessary resources to actually enact lasting change so for me in particular a lot of issues about social justice and working class conditions and immigration are very important to me I'm very much colored my experience back home and now I'm having left and having seen how the world lit how the other side lives and also interacting with people who are in these very powerful positions I get a better sense of like how it can actually make meaningful impacts back homes and actually just having to live there and I think at the end of the day that is something that is very helpful for me to overcome that concern about like did I abandon my culture did I leave it behind did I forget that I was Mexican because I feel like having left and having gotten these experience I am much more better positioned to be make me full impact back home
