A place of our own! On many occasions I have searched for a place where I belong. I have looked for spaces that felt safe, where I could be accepted for being who I am, for a place where I can share my words and not be ridiculed but understood. And I am so excited to share that I have many spaces like this… the NYC Latina Writers Group is just one of these spaces that gives me this sense of belonging and purpose and now GALDE is a new space for me to be able to come out and be who I am!
