My name is Marcela Gallegos-Holguin, first generation college student and first generation Mexican-American. Born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the Bay Area, and finally moving to Ohio July 2019, I've traveled a lot. I've been to Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and even to Massachusetts. In my passtime, I enjoy reading and making poetry. This blog was created as a way for me to reflect on the books we're reading in our class and to put myself in the time periods we read about. Due to my interest in poetry, I'll be able to dive deep into the texts and better analyze the symbolism within these books.
