I have always lived near large communities of Mexican immigrants and I was always taught to respect them, but I never really know much about what it was like to come to the US from Mexico nor did I really understand how truly huge the Hispanic population in the US is.
I, for one, am glad. Working with people from Latin America – educated and not, documented and not – I have gained a new appreciation for my own country. I think every US citizen who feels weary and blue about the state of our country needs to spend some time with someone who just fought like crazy to get here.
I have over 20 years of advertising and marketing experience. Currently I am the VP of Marketing at a mobile financial services company focused on the US Hispanic Market. and NO. I DON’T SPEAK SPANISH YET.
