In Attire
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

 I like my culture because it is full of colors, flavors, and joy. What I also like about my culture is the clothes. Especially the dresses because they are made out of very fresh fabrics and embroidered with colored threads.  When I was little, my dad always brought me dresses. And now whenever he travels to Mexico, he buys me a dress. This summer when he went to Mexico, he brought me a white dress, embroidered with colorful flowers. The dress stretches, which is good because it wont feel tight and feels comfortable like that. Its fresh for the summer. When I put it on, many people compliment my dress. They say its pretty. I feel proud when I wear that dress because I represent my culture, which is also my parents culture. People who made this dress are very dedicated and patient. The put a lot of work into the things they make. Not only do the make clothes, they also make different things like bags, toys, jewelry, and other accessories. 
 I like this dress because it is made by the hands of people who are very creative and hardworking.
