My “Not a Box” is a memory from Mexico. I loved going to Mexico since I was a little girl it was my favorite place. Being in Mexico made me feel peace, happy, no stress, no worries it was the best stress reliever. Most importantly I loved spending time with my grandma and have my kids spend time with her also. I am very proud of my culture and want my kids to learn about our culture and love it as much as I do. It is my favorite memory because it’s been two years since I’ve been to Mexico and since my grandmother passed away. I refuse to accept she is gone so I haven’t been to Mexico since and I just hold on to my beautiful memory.
