Fernanda Herrera - Define American

Fernanda Herrera

Birmingham, AL

An American is somebody who wholeheartedly contributes to society in a positive way. Through the tools found in education, advocacy, hard work, organizing, and entrepreneurship, anybody can become a strong citizen of their community. Understanding each other's stories and backgrounds while deeply sympathizing with struggles and obstacles we have each faced in our individual lives makes it easier to build a cohesive narrative together. Each person's unique story, whether that be race-related, about sexual orientation, education, abuse, crime, economic difficulties, success, failure, religion, or future desires all form a part of individual tapestries that, if pieced together with the thread of love and compassion, can be a lasting solution for a stronger United States of America.
