 In honor of Hispanic heritage month, we asked our KD Latino employees to share what Hispanic heritage means to them. In this post, Andrea, a Senior Account Executive, shares with us what being Cuban-American means to her and the sacrifices her family made to give her a better life.

As a Cuban-American and in my family, the first generation to be born in the United States, I have always valued my heritage and the notion that I was part of something greater than myself. When I think of all the sacrifices my grandparents made, leaving their loved ones and everything they knew behind in Cuba to create a better life for their children in this country, I am deeply humbled and grateful to have been born with the fortune of freedom.  My Cuban heritage is part of who I am, and the cultural values my Cuban parents have instilled in me are the hallmarks I carry every day. Those being, in a nutshell, family is paramount, faith is powerful, and the mantra “lo que esta pa’ ti nadie te lo quita” can apply to just about anything in life. I am very proud to be Cuban-American and hope to pass down the same values I so greatly cherish to my children some day.
