A Lost Girl/Una Nina Perdida

mariaThis is me in one of the worst times of my life…a lost girl around 15 years old, a gang member, a thug! I hated myself!  There are really no pics of my past. I am not a single particle of that girl anymore…she suffered! She was in pain! She would hide her body and her face…she felt ugly and worthless!!! She believed what she was told…SHE WAS A NOTHING AND NEVER WOULD AMOUNT TO ANYTHING! She was just lost and hurting, and that hard image was just an armor so no one would hurt her or get close to her. This was me, Maria Teresa Mejia. I was a little worm that became a butterfly and now I am flying high.
