How American? Very American!
Last February 11th I became a United States citizen. What an occasion to reflect on the great experiences I have had during the almost 13 years of living in this great nation. I am proud to say that this country’s true strength has and will continue to be in the contribution of people that, like me, have come from other lands. Something I am glad about is that my newly acquired citizenship does not make me any less Latino than I have always been: Maricela and I made it barely in time for the ceremony and celebrated eating authentic food from Oaxaca (Mexico) in downtown Los Angeles!
