  • Meet my Mommabear. Born and raised in 🇭🇹 she moved to the U.S. over 40 years ago. Growing up I often had to "translate" things to sales clerks or customer service agents on her behalf. Not because she couldn't speak English, but because they claimed they couldn't understand her accent. •
    I never quite understood just how much this hurt her, until she asked me to find a class to help her "get rid of her accent." It's funny how the same thing that was the cause of such shame and ridicule for her, was my source of envy. I always longed to share her beautiful Caribbean accent, a constant tie to our rich and diverse heritage. •
    To this day Mommabear has never taken one speech lesson, has never lost her accent, and is all the more ncredible in my eyes.
