I started college like most folks: 17 years old, with impressive guidance yet no real roadmap. The puzzling question of “What’s next?” was as tangible as ever.

The events that took place on Sunday in Orlando felt personal. Not only because I am a member of the LGBT community but because Pulse Nightclub was a pivotal place in my young adult life.

After a three-decade love affair with high heels, I am calling it quits. Blame (or credit) my last pair of tacones: six-inch black suede booties from a certain French designer, which I bought in a trendy Manhattan store. When I tried them on, the shoes looked amazing and felt great. I plunked down a few hundred dollars and decided to walk home, a leisurely 10-block city stroll.

I grew up in an upper-middle class family in Texas, where I attended the best private Catholic schools from preschool until graduation. When it came to my education–and my dreams–my parents spared no expense. If I needed a new blazer for my debate tournament, they bought me three. If I needed a tutor for calculus, they handled it. When it came time to apply for colleges, they expected the best from me, and they did their part: dishing out cash for SAT tests, application fees, and campus tours. I was never asked to stay close to home or attend an in-state institution to save money.

Growing up as a Latina, I remember looking at magazines when I was a little girl and realizing how different I looked from everyone else. I remember thinking, when I was just 10 or 11 years old, just how big my thighs were. I was deeply ashamed of my curves and the fact that I looked different than anyone else in my class.

This week marks the 76th anniversary of the Dominican Republic’s Parsley Massacre. It was October 1937 when dictator Rafael Trujillo ordered the killing of an estimated 30,000 Haitians living in the country. Many who were black or suspected of being from the neighboring country, and those who were unable to pronounce the word “perejil” (parsley in Spanish) without an accent, were executed. Many of the murdered had been born in the Dominican Republic. This was Trujillo’s attempt at mass ethnic cleansing.
