Mom: Yesenia Segundo Segundo Children: Atalia (5), Ana (3). Yesenia is torn between wanting her girls to remain by her side as they get older and hoping they find successful careers in a big city. "It's the way it is," she said. "If they want to go, they're free to go." Before receiving vitamins and the deworming medication, Ana was anemic. Yesenia enjoys wearing her traditional Mazahua blouse and skirt and showing off her heritage. "You have to be proud of what you are," she said. One of the only villagers to discuss American president Donald Trump and his attitude toward Mexican people, she remarked simply: "What he's doing is not good."
