Father’s Day Spotlight: Mauricio C.

My dad! Funny thing about him is that my siblings and I actually refer to him as Mao, and that’s always been the case. To me, feminism doesn’t mean hating men, but instead the support we give each other. The definition of feminism is the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes, according to Merriam-Webster. There are many men that support us women and help us get to where we want to be.

My dad has been a perfect example of what a great man that supports women looks like! He is the one that taught my siblings and me how to read and write in Spanish. Every night he would sit with us for about an hour and practice with us. He taught us not to be afraid and to get dirty and how to overcome our fears, although I am still afraid of heights lol. He also taught us to take care of others, how to run a business, manage our finances to save for our futures, and to follow our dreams. He made sure we knew how hard he had worked for his dreams to come true, and he always led us by example. He always does my DIY projects too lol.

He migrated to the United States at 19, not knowing the language. He had to work 3 jobs all at the same time to be able to save for a better future. He taught us how a man is suppose to treat us, women! He instilled in us amazing values, and that we should all help one another and treat each other with respect, no matter the situation. I would give anything just to see my dad happy! I know it sounds cliche, but he is the best father ever! He will do anything for us, and I hope to be able to be able to compensate for all that he has done! He loves when the family gathers to spend time together. 

Mi papá!!! Mao, como mis hermanos y yo le decimos, gracioso lo sé, pero siempre ha sido el caso. Ser feminista no significa en absoluto odiar a los hombres al contario significa trabajar juntos para lograr una igualdad política, económica y social de los sexos, según Merriam-Webster. Hay muchos hombres que nos apoyan a las mujeres y nos ayudan a llegar a donde queremos estar.

 ¡Un ejemplo perfecto en mi vida es mi papá! Él es el que enseñó a mi hermano, hermana y a mí a leer y escribir en español. Cada noche se tomaba una hora para sentarse con nosotros tres y enseñarnos. Nos enseño a no tener miedo y superalos. Aunque me da miedo las alturas jajaja. Tambien nos enseño ayudar a los demás, manejar un negocio, manejar el dinero y guardarlo para nuestros futuros, para lograr nuestros sueños porque el se aseguró de contarnos lo duro que trabajo para alcanzar sus sueños. 

Mi papa llego a los Estados Unidos a la edad de 19 años y sin saber el idioma. Trabajo 3 trabajos todos al mismo tiempo, sólo para asegurarse de que ahorraría para un mejor futuro. ¡Nos enseñó cómo un hombre debería tratarnos a nosotras las mujeres! Con respeto y siempre ayudarnos unos a otros, no importa la situación. ¡Daria cualquier cosa para ver a mi papá feliz!!  Sé que suena  cliché, pero es el mejor papa.  Él hariá cualquier cosa por nosotros y todo lo que quiero hacer es devolver el favor.

My Father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: He believed in me!

HOW HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED SINCE HAVING YOUR CHILDREN?

My life changed a lot! Being a parent is responsibility, love, dedication, care, and providing for them.

¿CÓMO HA CAMBIADO TU VIDA DESDE QUE TIENES TUS HIJOS?

¡Demasiado! Más responsabilidad, amor, dedicación, esmero, y querer luchar por ellos.

DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A FEMINIST?

We all have the same rights, and everyone can accomplish whatever it is they want, as long as there is mutual respect.

¿TE CONSIDERAS FEMINISTA?

Todos tenemos los mismos derechos y cada cual puede lograr lo que sea siempre y cuando haya respeto.

IF THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING THAT YOU COULD LEAVE AS A LEGACY FOR YOUR CHILDREN, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Go to school, to love, though I don’t think I can leave money because I don’t have a lot LOL! But definitely, love, get a higher education, and to be responsible! Well, I left 3 legacies.

SI SÓLO HUBIERA UNA COSA QUE PUDIERAS DEJAR COMO LEGADO PARA TUS HIJOS, ¿QUÉ SERÍA?

Estudio, amor, creo que nunca dejaría dinero porque no la tengo JAJAJA pero definitivamente estudio, amor y RESPONSABLIDAD! Bueno deje 3 legados. jaja
