It’s not like growing up Mexican in the U.S. is the same for everyone, but you gotta admit that there are some shared experiences that make you feel like you are part of some kind of Mexi-American tribe, no? That’s how these #GrowingUpMexican tweets make me feel. Every single one of them has me nodding my head and saying: YASSS!
Sometimes it’s just nice to know you are not alone. What’s the saying? “Mexicans love company”—oh, no, wait—it’s “Misery loves company,” but it totally works for Mexicans too.
Now, check out these tweets that perfectly describe growing up Mexican:
