Thanks to catchy songs and fun choreographythe young woman often shares details of her day to day, even revealing people’s reactions to her Latina status.
In one of those clips, he decided to dismantle “the circus” of the American dream with the song “Life is a carnival”, by Celia Cruz, background. Although he came to highlight there that with his work he earns a good sum of money, he immediately made it clear that part of his salary -at least 100 dollars- must be sent regularly to his country of origin. “That for you is nothing”he wrote with a certain acidity and irony.

The tiktoker was not silent and she immediately replied: “Pass the data”, showing that it is not so easy to find such a flexible opportunity.
Betzabet leads a happy life, as she usually details and reflects, but to achieve it he had to make many sacrifices. For example: “live” sleepily all day, work long hours, hold two jobs to supportpay rent and spend most of the time on the street for work.

Both she and other Latinos who decided to emigrate have described that every effort has its reward and that to obtain fruits you have to fight.
