“My language is my home.” For many of us, as newcomers to a new country, our languages are the connection to our past, our roots, and our home. The linguistic repertoire of each individual in the world is so unique and rich that it shouldn’t be blocked because we do not share a common language. Languages are bridges, not barriers. Working on this project with this amazing research team, I have witnessed how much it means for our heritage language sto be acknowledged and used to voice our “funds of knowledge.”
