"I didn't realize it was affecting me until I started to forget about homework."

Hiiii, I'm Niara and I'm 15. Patricia is my godsister (my mom is her godmother) but we tell everyone that we're cousins because it's easier. She's 21, but she's never voted- she's not even registered yet- and she's never wanted to vote either. I've known her my whole life, and sometimes she lives with me. Three of my relatives from Puerto Rico are coming to live with me too, because they lost their home in Hurricane Maria. The fact that they're bathing in dirty river water, because the government isn't helping enough, really upsets me. I think if more people voted, we could start to change things.
