If your American Dream is bigger than it’s supposed to be, listen up.

The American Dream, a young girl follows an unwritten journey of accomplishments. These accomplishments are a trajectory of a traditional path. The American Dream depicts a family with a picket fence, children who attend formal schooling which ultimately provides them with a career that allows them to enjoy activities like travel.

This is for the all-nighters and way-too-early bus riders.

A young girl stays up late and in the light of her desk lamp, studies hard and vigorously writes.

The one that is paying homage to the past, by hustling like there’s no tomorrow.

An altar comes on screen with photographs of her family members and artifacts that represent her Mexican roots. The young girl then works stocking shelves in a supermarket, a way to continue her dreams. She embodies the fight of her ancestors to want to build a better life.

Los hijos de imigrantes who become a bridge between la luna y el sol.

Her ancestors hold up a walkway on which the young girl stands, looking at herself in the mirror, touching it with one hand.

This is where you shatter stereotypes and glass ceilings.

Where you honor abuelita’s name and your parent’s struggle.

With the mirror breaking, she is able to finally touch her grandmother on the other side, as they both smile. Then, her parents sit at a table going through their bills, visibly worried.

The parents stand up and look at the young girl proudly, who is standing in front of a poster at a science fair and wins a ribbon.

You, the link that breaks generational chains.

The young girl walks out of a broken piece of paper art that depicts a chain of people.

You, their heirloom, their legacy in motion, confirmation que todo tendrá prosperidad.

The young girl walks on a path drawn by a pencil. The pencil shrinks and signs a letter that is put into an envelope, representing a commitment to the young girl’s future.

A promise to be more, hacer more, vivir more.

The words “Be more”, “HACER more” and “Vivir more” appear.

So, when they ask you where you’re going, tell them in a voice that echoes back across borders and oceans, tell them that you will go as far as you choose to.
