A Note From The Editor


I’m Tracy. This blog, LATINAish, began in 2009 as a creative outlet to express my love of all things Latin American, to share observations of bilingual, bicultural life, and to connect with kindred spirits.

Over the years, LATINAish has remained focused on thoughtful content that inspires, educates and encourages respectful discussion on culture, language, and issues affecting la comunidad latina because I believe that through sharing positive stories and honest conversations, poco a poco, we can all grow ourselves and better give back to the world we live in.

The little community that has come together through this blog amazes me and I have learned so much from the conversations it has sparked. I am grateful to all of you who read, subscribe, like, tweet, share, and comment. Although LATINAish is full of stories featuring our bilingual/bicultural familia – it isn’t just about us – it’s about all of you and the spirit in which you come here to contribute your own histories, knowledge, questions, and positive energy.

Gracias for reading and for helping to create a welcoming atmosphere for both Latinos, and Latinos de Corazón.

Con cariño,
