As an Indian, I had the privilege of growing up in a linguistically diverse environment. I have joined Escape projects to represent my community, many of whom are proficient English speakers and at the same time deeply connected to their mother tongue. My contribution, therefore, goes beyond the concept of using heritage language to support English language learners and their families as it sheds light on the importance of including the mother tongue for all.
