Introduce Yourself: Hi my name is Bianca Granado, Im 16 and I live in Sweden. I come from Latin america but identify as indigenous-latin american which a lot of latinos don’t do, as being native in Latin America is seen as something less then others.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I think that we were all made to learn how to respect each other and live our lives the way we think it’s right. Sadly we have lots of problems in our world today but I believe in humanity and that everyday we will be able to progress in actions for good causes for the world.
What are your inspirations & goals?: My inspirations in life would be my parents and other family members. I come from very hard working families and I think that I learn from my mistakes and from everything that they teach me in life. My only goals is to be happy, healthy and to help others in need. My biggest goal in life though would be to help poor people all over the world, save the lives of animals and so much more…
How would you impact the world?: I don’t know how I would exactly do it but I think that using a platform such as instagram or YouTube would be a great start to reach out to people in the world.
Struggles In Life? : I live/come from the hood in Sweden and about 7 months ago I starter my first year of gymnasium, which is like grade 10 in the US. I struggle with a big culture shock, because even if I was born in Sweden I never really hung out or had Swedish friends so I’ve always had friends that were people of color. I’ve been seeing just how different my life and the lives of the Swedish people at my new school are. I try not to get offended by everything that happens in my school that may be offensive or racist but I still struggle being one of the few p.o.c in my school. Another struggle would probably be that both my parents have a diagnosis of illness. My dad has asthma and another lung illness and my mom has endometriosis. I’ve lived my whole life with my parents sick and being an only child can sometimes be hard, you are constantly worried about your parents health. Even though I struggle seeing them like this I will work hard to give everything to my parents, more than what they ever gave me.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : If we are talking about looks I would say that I’ve stopped caring so much about it then before but I still have my days were I don’t feel the most confident. And if its personality wise I would say my stubbornness could be something that I could change, as well as how I tend to not forget what people say or do to me and hold a burden for a long time. Which I do not revcomend, its not healthy at all
What does love mean to you?: Love to me is passion, to think about something or someone and feel good on the inside. Love is deep and it can be referred to a lot of things but love is very special that just doesn’t come from anywhere.
