I truly enjoy getting to know people and their backgrounds as a result of the various locations I have lived in. Whether it be living in the outskirts of Boston, Brooklyn, Madrid, Buenos Aires or Deli, I have learned to navigate through the unique nuances that cultures generate and developed my own way of communicating. I’m fluent in Spanish and speak an average level of Twi. Week by week, I fight to learn more Twi and get more comfortable with phrases and pronunciation under my father’s tutelage. Even though I grew up listening and speaking Twi, due to the common law advice of most educators of first-generation students, my parents were advised to stop speaking to me in Twi for fear of continual communication obstacles in English. It is my hope that Twi will be my future second language to be spoken as comfortably as Spanish. As I embark on this journey, you will read about my struggles with adaptation and language learning. Also, be on the lookout for more writings from me in other publications.
I take pride in exploring as much as possible the places and spaces that are new and old to me. For those reasons and more, I’m creating a podcast that will enable me to tell the stories of others, like I have grown up accustomed to doing in my writing. Being a Texan, Spanish has always played a major role in my life while Twi has always been in the ether. As a result, my escape and travel to Latin America countries took me to many Spanish speaking nations and political discussions. If you remember nothing from this bio, remember that my love of cultures is commonly displayed through my passion for writing and educating people about them.
