Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Hello my dear Latinitas,

I just stopped by to say hello and to tell you all how much I miss you. I'm currently living in San Antonio and has been a unique experience so far. The first thing that I want to mention is that my English has improved...that's for sure. Where I work, I'm the only fluent Spanish speaker and at the beginning was a little awkward, but as my days there have been passing so far has been great. 

This month, I will turn 5 months since I got here. It has been fast! I still miss my beloved El Paso and how can I forget my beautiful Ciudad Juarez. The people here in San Antonio has been really nice to me, I haven't had any trouble at all in making new friends. Something that I want to say is that every single person always asks me where I'm from, I respond to them that I'm from Mexico. They say I have a very strong accent, which I'm very proud to have and I'm not shy at all whenever is time for me to speak English. With the only person, I speak my mother language is with my husband the other people is just English. 

I will write again soon. I hope everyone is OK and that you're having a great school year. 

With love,

P.S. No one is able to say my name so now I'm called Ari. I'm still trying to make myself get used to it.
