Why Latino Voters Can Be the ‘Unstoppable Giant’

This election makes me feel a little bit of everything, but not exactly how I expected to feel for my first time voting.

I was born in the U.S. but lived in Mexico for 15 years. I used to think that voting would never, ever make a change in society. But that has a lot to do with Mexico’s history.

I came back to the United States at age 17 in 2012. Just when I started getting into the groove of sunny California, Obama vs. Romney happened.

I didn’t vote. I wasn’t into politics and change as much as I am now. So, yes, I let four years of my life slide under the rug rather than contributing to the future of the country.
