Growing up in Atlanta, I have a perspective on multiple cultures through visiting my family in Spain and Panama, and from living in the states. I think it’s essential as humans to travel and become aware of all the different cultures that the word “Hispanic” is comprised of. They’re all so unique and special in their own respects. The only way to personally appreciate my heritage is to go and venture into the world. I am grateful for how fortunate we are to be able to hop on a plane and experience so many places. Being able to spend the holidays with my family is the main thing that truly helps me feel grounded in my roots.
