How Has Spanish Played a Role in Your Personal and Professional Life?

Learning Spanish contributed to my personal and professional growth. My first language is Portuguese, so I feel a deep connection with the Spanish language and Hispanic culture in the Americas.  I did some research on Spanish as a heritage language as a graduate student and I fell in love with it. We are now trying to create a 2-course heritage program at Missouri State, even though we have a low percentage of Hispanics in the area, I hope this will have a positive impact in our community.
