Alberto O. Cappas

Author's Bio

My work is a reflection of my growth and journey in the United States, growing up Puerto Rican, non-English speaker, transformed into an Americanized and productive citizen of this capitalist system, developing values and standards as weapons to defeat ignorance in this society.
