Wanda was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. “I pretty much raised two boys as a single mother in the projects, first in Brownsville and then here. They both moved out of town, my oldest to Ohio and the other to Georgia, but we keep in touch and we still feel very connected. It doesn’t matter how far apart we are from each other, we’re still in each others’ lives.”

La Respuesta

For over a century, Puerto Ricans have lived and settled in the U.S. (the “Boricua Diaspora”), but now, for the first time, there are more acá than allá. In response to our growing presence and ongoing impact, La Respuesta seeks to invoke a claim to our histories and announce our stories. This will be done by highlighting our assets and distinct experiences, agitating discussion on the crucial issues, and addressing the obstacles that we face.
