I chose these words because even as a Latino living in a predominantly Latino/Mexican city, yet I still don’t speak Spanish. I never was taught as a kid, nor did I pay attention in Spanish class. Looking back, I should have done something, so I could’ve spoken the language of my culture! I will have to learn on my own now, which I don’t mind at all if it means coming closer to my roots.
