She travels all over the country collecting stories of first-generation Americans. In the second part of this conversation, we talk about being challenged for not being "American" enough or not being "Latinx" enough. We address being different at work, being called out for not speaking Spanish and how we transmit culture and deal with guilt around all these things. Learn the key differences between American and Latinx culture that are a source of internal conflict for first-generation Americans.
