Who Am I Really??


When I took a moment to think about this question…I had to pace for a while and then realize that “I am a blessing under disguise…” It sounds conceded, but give me a second to explain. In your life when you are in your darkest moment…someone who ever it is…comes to your rescue…I have done that for a lot of people, and sometimes I forget about myself.

In Hebrew, my name Jonathan means, “gift of God” (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/1/Jonathan). What a wonderful meaning, but at the same time it bears a lot of responsibility. I tell you right now, I am 29 years old and happily married…but I have lied, argued, fought, been and still am proud, and done stuff I regret–in other words I am no Angel.

Like many of us that have done naughty things…so I am not here to judge…I am just here to speak my mind and help my Latino brothers and sisters in any way possible. I love all my races…however we all pick a group, and I pick my Latino brothers and sisters…who have brilliance but don’t let it shine. You know one voice can change the world…

I have been called Dr. Martin Luther King for the Latinos, Jesus, The Preacher, and much more…I am honored, however I am not them…I am Jonathan Baez the small Latino with a big voice…loved by few, hated by many.

Quickly, I have gone through two open-heart surgeries with pacemakers, going to get my third pacemaker soon, told by my mother that I was a mistake should have never been born, my dad reject me, my brother tried to kill me, had guns in my head, knifes in my throat, did drugs, hustled, lived in the street, preached, got married young, graduated at 11th grade with all my credits, was told by my Math Teacher that I won’t graduate because I am a “spic”, love to debate, had a stroke at 21, then another at 28, was called a liar, racist and Frank Abagnale…but no matter what went wrong, I never did or will give up…because, “Success is not for the faint of heart…” (Author Unknown)

This is me…love me, hate me…however, I will never change… A Latino with a voice…living, speaking, and changing lives…this is Who I Really Am…
