Today I took the oath (in bold) and officially became a citizen of the United States!!!! The first thing I did was fill out the form to register to vote.
As I took the oath I thought about the journey to get to this day. I wasn't planning on posting another immigration poem but this one came to me while standing in the auditorium with hundreds of people from more than 50 countries, so many of whom were joyfully waving American flags.
I am lucky. I got citizenship. Others are not so lucky. Please don't take your citizenship for granted. Use it to vote. Use it to call your reps and ask them to support the Dreamers and DACA.πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Loving this book.

I cannot tell you how often I looked in the mirror as a kid and wished desperately that I was somebody else. Some places in America have a way of making you hate yourself if you are in any way different from the crowd. To those who still live in such places, who feel such things, all my love and strength to you.
With more DACA talks going on today, my heart is with all of the Dreamers who do not yet know their fate and who have to watch as a corrupt political system uses them as bargaining chips.

So excited to be part of this awesome anthology, and to share the story of angry, clever, awesome Reirin. You can pre-order now! #FromACertainPOV is out on Oct. 3.

Many thanks to @lailamanack for this beautiful portrait of Laia. ❀❀❀🦁🦁🦁
Laia from An Ember in the Ashes by the gorgeous @sabaatahir! Wow, I flew through this book in a day 😱 I need more! To be honest, this was the first time I've felt represented in a novel I was interested in, and I'm 21 years old! I've read tons of of books, and for this to be the first? We have to do better, and Sabaa is a fantastic storyteller and such an inspiration. #RepresentationMatters πŸ‘Š

Had a blast with the ever-rad and generous @AdamSilvera last night at Kepler's books in Menlo Park. If you are in Los Angeles, go see him and @nicolayoon tonight. And read THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END!!!

Immigrant (2), a poem. When your parents or guardians bring you to America as a child, you have no control. You just go where the adults decide you go. Your country, your home, is where they are. Rescinding DACA would mean that 800,000 people who had no choice about whether to come to America or not would be punished for something that was never in their control in the first place.

IMMIGRANT (1), a poem. I do not write a ton about my immigrant experience, because it is deeply personal for each one of us and because it is difficult/beautiful/ugly/scary/lonely.
I don't always like to remember and yet it is always on my mind. I thought I would share this today because of what is happening with the Dream Act. When I read about the act being rescinded, I felt ill.
So I wrote some poems and I will share them over the coming days. I don't know what good it will do. Maybe it will just help people understand.
