As the first generation born in the US, I am a true bicultural Latina. A full blooded Cuban, with a distinct American upbringing on the beaches outside of Los Angeles. My hyphenated existence continues as I raise my two bicultural, biracial children to be proud of their heritages. At my blog, De Su Mama, I explore issues of biculturalism, personal identity and interracial marriages. I love photography and travel, and believe in the power of food to heal most wounds.I know I'm Latina when... the Spanish flows fast and loud.
