“I grew up in the Dominican Republic. […] The economy was really bad. We didn’t have much growing up. One meal a day if we were lucky, maybe two. Meat, maybe once a week. Maybe three pairs of clothes at one time. That was it. Shoes, maybe one pair of old shoes. Books or notebooks to go to school, we didn’t have much. My parents would get one notebook and cut it right down the middle, make it into two. Pencils, like number two pencils, they would break in half and make two pencils out of one.”
