I scared my boss.
Hindsight is always 20/20…. The realization struck me, that I was intimidating and alienating my boss because I was “too-Hispanic” with my arms waving around in the air, big hair, hoop earrings, loud and passionate talk…
Yes, I speak Spanish, dance merengue, eat plantains and play baseball. AND, I watch CNN, drive the kids around to lax, football and karate, root for the Ravens and love pizza. I am both a Latina and an American. I am a bi-cultural Dominican-American. And because I know both worlds, I strive to connect these two very disparate worlds so everyone benefits.
