Bicultural Latina born in the United States, writing about our hyphenated experience. Born to Cuban immigrants, I am raising my biracial, bicultural children with a love of their Latino roots.

"Although I was born an American citizen, my parents were not. We lived in the constant pursuit of American citizenship. I cannot imagine growing up with the fear of deportation as a child. Immigration reform needs to happen because young American citizens demand it."
