When I look at myself, I feel lost because of my lack of understanding of who I am; the constant questioning of what it means to be enough within my community. I wonder whether or not my experiences align with what is expected of someone of Latin descent.
This perspective changed when I spoke with a close friend of mine whose experience differed from mine as well as what I thought to be the norm. With that, I became curious about what others experienced as members of the Latinx community. Listening to multiple testimonies of different people led me to create “Latin-X-perience.” This is an online archive of one-on-one interviews of different members of the Latinx community speaking about their lives and thoughts on what it is like to be Latinx through their lens. Let it enlighten you, like it did me.
