We started a Giveaway to support people affected by government laws implemented at the beggining of the year that mostly affected LGBT & immigrant communities. We did it in support of these communities and to show solidarity. Now the results are in and we are sharing Maria Uria's amazing story!
" Being a first generation American (or an anchor baby as some orange man loves to describe me) ... I am proud to say that I am proud of the family I come from.
My mother fled El Salvador as a young girl to escape all of the violence and war in her home country along with her two sisters. All no more than 10 years old. They knew that coming to the U.S. could give them a chance of a good life but most importantly, a better life for their future offspring. If the U.S. had blocked her out like this current president is trying to do, I would not have the life I have now. I would not have seen the things that I've seen. I would not have met the man that I will call my husband.
My family could not be more diverse. We have all from Cuban, Mexican to Chinese and we have Christians and Muslims and proud to say I have cousins who are Gay!
The new ban that has been put up makes me uneasy especially because my step-father is Muslim and the father of my 3 year old sibling's father. He's been in my life since the 6th grade and will now see me walk down the aisle with the man of my dreams.
This ban profiles people who have come to this country to work and have a less difficult life and have nothing to do with whats going on over the pond. You cannot accuse an entire religion of being bad people. There will always be people of every background who make the wrong choices but that doesn't mean everyone has the same mentality. We are all INDIVIDUALS! This type of mentality sets us back years and years of evolution."
