GrubStreet’s “Immigrant Stories” Series

I wrote a personal blog piece for GrubStreet’s “Immigrant Stories” series about my journey from Cuba to the person and writer I am today, titled:

Snapshots of a Cuban’s Journey, Or How I Retained My Accent.

I am immensely grateful to Sarah Colwill-Brown for her wonderful editorial eye, and to GrubStreet for providing a platform to share a slice of my immigrant story.

Unknown Americans

I’d like to thank author Cristina Henríquez for allowing me to share my #UnkownAmericans story. Check the website for so many other wonderful immigrant stories.

Also, I recommend getting a copy of Cristina’s very moving novel about immigrant families, The Book of Unknown Americans!
