I am interested in your heritage

p>I was born in Miami and raised by Cuban refugees, exiles among many people just like me. I never felt completely anything, American or Cuban. When I ask people where they’re from, it is because I want to understand their immigrant, child or grandchild of the immigrant story. Our families’ traditions live on and influence us for generations. Nowadays, I am afraid to offend people with that question.
