"Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don’t matter or like you don’t have a place in our American story, because you do. And you have a right to be exactly who you are,” - Michelle Obama. This is Sopa de Letras. It's the first thing I ever learned how to make. My babysitter was a Mexican immigrant, and she showed me how to make alphabet tomato soup. Most Americans eat tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. I eat sopa de fideo con quesadillas. I want to tell you about what it means to be a proud Hispanic American. It means eating our version of tomato soup with grilled cheese and feeling so proud to be here in the US to share my culture. Barack, you and your family have stood for equality, inclusion, and acceptance. Thanks for standing on the side of hope and on the side of change. I love you.
