Somos Salvadoreños Unidos hasta el fin. Azul y blanco así nací.
Insightful and delightful
We all can agree how great this podcast is. What I’ve noticed is that we are all trying to find our roots or preserve that identity/culture and I find that to be such a beautiful thing. Listening to these episodes has inspired me to do some brainstorming myself! Keep spreading our excellence through these stories💕
