What is your Hispanic heritage?
My mother is Puerto Rican and father is from the Dominican Republic
How has your Hispanic heritage influenced your life?
My Hispanic heritage has allowed me to learn and teach my roots, culture and tradition. Our food, music, travel and my sense of family and community have all been informed by the place and the culture which I grew up with.
In your opinion, why is it important for the MPS community to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month?
As the number of Hispanics continue to grow across the nation, it is important for students to know that there are individuals, just like them, in all types of roles.
