"I really want to learn to speak Spanish fluently. I’m Mexican American and didn’t grow up in a Spanish speaking household. I’ve always felt a level of guilt for not being disciplined enough to learn it, but most importantly I think it would make me feel more connected to my roots."
"I also have costume jewelry from my grandmother which I consider an heirloom because the pieces are simple and what she wore everyday. It’s those types of items—the things that were used and loved—that feel the most important to me."
