Esperanza is basically embarrassed about her family and their relative poverty. She is somewhat expected to live the aspirations of her talented mother; for much of her life she feels like she is not as good as everyone else. As a writer she understands that if she leaves the life she now lives, she must never forget where she came from. She is especially close to her little sister.
