Dear Betancourt fetus,
The date is June 18, 2020 and you are swimming around in your mother’s womb. Google says you are the size of mango, which is cool cause your grandma gifted me mangos this week.
My college sister had this great idea today. She suggested that we write letters to the new generation, which means you. I jumped on this opportunity because I want to tell you all about my experience as a Latina women during this time. Especially in 2020, so much has happened and we are only half way through the year.
This will be the first of hopefully many letters to you. Some will be great, others not so much. Nonetheless, they will all be written honestly and with the best intentions. I hope that these letters will inspire you to ask questions and help you become a strong and kind human being.
For now I will leave you with this. Never hesitate to ask a question and always dance like no one is watching .
