Why is Hispanic heritage important to you?
Everyone's heritage is vitally important to who we are as individuals. It is a part of our individual history, culture and the self-awareness of where our families came from. Everyone should be proud of their heritage, celebrate it and share it. I have a wonderful understanding of my Hispanic culture and love it, but what defines me is that I am an American and that provides me with the freedom to be anything I want to be.
