Abstract

In this interview Cinthia Duran, a young Latin American woman from Quito, Ecuador, discusses her cultural background. Cinthia is a sophomore and an international student at Skidmore College. The piece primarily focuses on Cinthia’s relationship with her home country, diversity within Quito, the increasing number of gangs in the city, how dance allows her to express her cultural heritage, and her international travels. Cinthia interweaves her experiences as a student in Italy and America, and reviews how these explorations have added to her identity as a Latin American woman. Cinthia also discusses American immigration policy, in relation to Ecuador, by sharing the stories of friends who have attempted to immigrate and/or travel short term to the U.S. but have been rejected. Finally, Cinthia reflects on her own identity as a Latin American instead of a Latina, and how her experiences have further encouraged her to travel and help those around her.
