Narrative Essay On Lana Del Rey

Good Essays
In life there are many situations you come across where you must decide whether to stay quiet or speak up. Most of the times I decide to stay quiet and turn the other cheek, but during the summer I decided to step out of my comfort zone.

She told me to get out of her country and that I had no right to be there because I belonged in Mexico along with all the other immigrants coming into her country. I am an American citizen and I was born in the United States, so her comment did not offend me personally but it did hurt me
