Not from here, not from there.

I was born in Colombia, I came to USA in 2003. My physical features, my accent and my skin color say I am not born in American, they say I belong to a different culture; but when I go back to my home country for a visit, I find myself not fitting anymore, even though I have kept my cultural values, it is hard to act like I used to. My friends and family see me in a different way, I live between two worlds. I have a son, my dream is for him to be able to love my culture and my native language as much as I do.
