I was right there with you in your mission statement, about feeling the dual exclusion from both Latinx and U.S. heritages. I've felt that so much growing up as a Peruvian in the United States, and I'm so glad that this organization exists 🙏

I resonated so much with Marisol's poem, with the mixture of Spanish and English, and with the connection to your grandfather and thinking about future generations' connection to their heritage.

I resonated with Elena's piece, when you spoke about going to Peru and the eagerness to fill a hole made of solitude.

I was right there with Analisa in so many parts of her story, riding on the swerving bus with the sheer drop to the ocean, when you met your brother for the first time, and forgetting how to speak in any language.

Super appreciate all that the contributors shared during both of your events. Congrats on this publication, looking forward to the next one 🙂
