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

I have loved Spanish since studying it in high school. I became interested in heritage language studies because I have had many friends who, like me, are heritage speakers. While we all have different heritage languages, we all had similar experiences with our heritage languages, cultures, and communities.
