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

I'm Niara & I'm 15. Patricia is my godsister but we tell everyone that we're cousins because it's easier. She's 21, but she's never voted or 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 Maria. I think if more people voted, we could start to change things.
