STORIES
Family Heroes

Denise Mejia Cortez

by Sescie Cortez - Middle School - from Illinois

My mother is my hero.

My mom is my hero because she is always there for me even when I think I don’t need her. She always makes me laugh even when I am mad. She had a tough life growing up, but that didn’t stop her from giving birth to me. She is a very strong, capable, inspiring, and powerful woman. She will make you feel safe even if you are not her child. That is why she is my hero.
