English and Spanish, Fluent in None

Martin Orozco,
Berwyn, IL

Being bilingual is a blessing but a curse at times. You feel like you haven’t mastered either language but know both languages enough to speak it. When speaking English, sometimes you can’t find the words and have to fill it in with Spanish words and vice versa. I feel like it’s hard to jumble two languages when trying to communicate in either language.
