Esperanza's self-identity is based largely upon her culture, her neighborhood, and her family's economic status. She sees her identity in terms of the home she lives in.... something she believes dictates who she is. Her home is not what she dreams of..... she sees moving out of the neighborhood a way of making her dreams come true, an aspect through which she will be seen differently.
