I'm of Mexican heritage, first generation Americana, born in Chitown (Chicago) and I grew up with familia that strongly encouraged, "I am Joaquien," a novel that represented a "Chicano" boxer born in Califas who truly learned the soul & passion of who he is. I have lived in Hawaii for over four years based at Fort Shafter serving the United States Army as a Logistics Warrant Officer since 1986.
what is your current, past or ideal job title?
Army Warrant Officer, exemplifying being "who I am," and serving not only my nation but the community in which I reside.
what languages do you speak?
Espanol and English
what countries have you lived in?
All over, the privilege of being in the military is that you get to serve in many places within our land and overseas.
what's your Hispanic connection?
Our cultura and who we represent; a diversity of people and life, where you been, the passion of our historical weight and what footprint we can leave behind. May it be our very best!

Good to hear from you! I'll bet that tsunami did give you a scare! Oh, Margarita, I'm in Washington State. It has rained so much here we're having mud slides and the rivers are rising. Definitely not Hawaii! But I've been to paradise twice and have written a humorous romance about a woman who goes on vacation there called Bears in the Hibiscus. Unfortunately, it isn't for sale on the island--only on the Internet stores.
Today, here, we're due for more rain. Cold rain. Next week, rain. Good grief. But how can I complain after Japan's disaster?
Hello, Margarita, nice to meet you. Are you still in Hawaii?
Thank you for your service to our country. We have a lot of men who served in our family, but no women. When I was growing up (I'm 67) it wasn't that prevalent. Also, there weren't many cousins in my family who were girls!
Later on, my husband served in Vietnam and other places.
Take care, Janelle
