Erika Cuevas


Erika Cuevas’ interview presents a unique side of being a Latina in Ohio. She says that her ability with the language and her knowledge of Latina culture are not that strong, but it is evident that they are a part of her, since she tries to incorporate these aspects into her life. Her mom, according to her, is the most important person in her life, but she also has strong connections with her grandparents, since they are the reason that she speaks Spanish. Above all, although her experiences at the university haven’t been those which she was expecting, she offers advice to new Latin@ students that are coming to her university and she talks about how she is attempting to change it to contain more Latina culture.
