Came to the States as a toddler. I can’t speak Spanish very well, despite my parents and the rest of my family speaking it. Other Latinos say I’m not really Latino because I can’t speak Spanish. This makes me feel sad and confused. Can anyone else relate?

Absolutely. It’s kind of like being stuck in the middle.

I think you're Latino just for the fact that you were born in Latin America. Also, you should be proud of your heritage, and it doesn't matter if you don't speak Spanish perfectly, that doesn't make you less Latino.

I could guess that you're different from any American, right? I don't know you, but I'm sure of it.
