What’s It Like To Be Extra-Hyphenated?

Jenny welcomes back her best friend Karla Guerra, who was born in Honduras to her Honduran mother, but raised by her Colombian step-father’s family in the United States, as they talk about her experience not feeling Colombian, Honduran or American enough, growing up with family members who felt the need to overly-explain why she looked different than them, what it’s like to interact with Hondurans when she wasn’t raised with their customs and food, and how being “extra-hyphenated” might actually be the basis of Latin American culture.
