From Monterrey to New York: A Small Business Owner’s Battle Against Financial Hardship and Political Identity”.

My Vote Matters: A Texas Ice Cream Maker Advocates for Small Business Success

I was born in Monterrey, Mexico and moved to my current location when I was 9 years old. My husband and I always had a passion for food and dreamed of owning our own business. After four great years, my husband passed away, leaving me with the burden of keeping his memory alive through my ice cream business.

One of the biggest challenges I face now is the rising cost of goods. Before the pandemic, I could buy 60 eggs for $6, but now they cost $14.78. This increase has significantly impacted my business, with my earnings being cut in half. I am currently $81,000 in debt and struggling to afford healthcare and save for my children’s college education.

Despite my financial struggles, I have always been open-minded about politics and voted for President Trump in both the 2016 and 2020 elections. As a small business owner, I felt that his policies were beneficial for me. However, it’s important to note that labeling someone as strictly conservative or liberal is not always accurate as people can be complex individuals with different views on various subjects.

As an upcoming primary approaches, I will likely be voting for President Trump once again as he seems to be the best option available to me at this time given my financial struggles and desire to keep his memory alive through my ice cream business.
