WHAT MAKES ME ME?

 

My name is Alejandro Amador. I was born in Cuba and immigrated to the U.S. when I was just 5 years old.

As immigrants, my family and I struggled to adapt to a new way of life, even having to learn a whole new language. I am so grateful to have come to this country at an early age since it was, for the most part, easy for me to learn how to fit it in.

I also identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community and while it’s been difficult at times to be myself without judgment, it is something I’m proud and open about.

While my situations haven’t always been typical nor easy, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Thanks to my culture and my identity, I feel that I am more accepting of other people and their stories. I like to think it makes me a better friend because I can relate to others’ experiences of feeling isolated. But most importantly, the challenges I’ve faced because of who I am or what I look like, are what motivate me to persevere and rise above.

This is my story.
