Meet Suzanne Teran, Community Leader with "Domestic Worker Project"
I came to the U.S. for college, after finishing high school in Lima, Peru, and have now lived here for 21 years. There was a period when I saw myself much more as a ‘foreigner’ than an immigrant who had committed to living here. Now in my work in public health, I value that I am able to keep a strong connection to the Latino community, and use my language skills and background to help immigrants around the issues of work and health.
Interesting or wise practice I'd like to see adopted in the U.S...... Siesta time! Seriously, I miss the slower pace of life that is more typical of South American culture. There is an enjoyment of simple things day to day and of multigenerational family life.
