Two big ones for me are faith and food. Growing up half Dominican, half Guyanese in the white suburbs somewhere along the line language was lost but the other two remained. Luckily I’ve had the opportunity to study Spanish in school because I’d say language is such a strong part of identity, communication is always key in a relationship and what could be more important that the relationship with your culture.
