Kenneth Ramos grew up in Cleveland, OH. He is of Puerto Rican descent and grew up speaking English and Spanish. He talked to me about growing up being very proud of his culture and, in fact, he thought it was normal that everyone in his neighborhood spoke more than one language. Kenny worked for the police force in Columbus, OH for many years and only recently, he retired. He has served his community in many ways, and has been in the position to advice and encourage new immigrants to learn the language and the culture of the place where they live.
