- Essays on Growing Up Latino and Celebrating What Unites Us
- By: LeJuan James
- Narrated by: LeJuan James
- Length: 5 hrs and 29 mins
LeJuan James loves being Hispanic. But growing up in the US to immigrant parents, he quickly noticed their house rules and traditions didn’t always match up with his friends’. The result was a lifetime of laugh-out-loud relatable content for his videos. Definitely Hispanic is a collection of heartfelt memoiristic essays that explores the themes LeJuan touches upon in his videos and celebrates the values and traditions being kept alive by Hispanic parents raising US-born children.

I loved the book. I can totally identify with you. I immigrated to this country at the age of 11 yrs old, and I couldn’t understand why all the kids around me were allowed to have sleepovers except me! I also married a white man, who didn’t really accept my culture fully, and He passed that on to our children. So, I shared some chapters with my “American” born children who don’t quite get why I’m the way that I’m..... Like Saving things for future use, and how important “Respect” is to me as Latina. I have not changed. I’m proud to be Latina. But it’s very difficult to be in the middle of two generations of Estado Unidense. Mi ex-esposo antes y ahora mis hijos. Y por el otro lado a mis padres que son Latinoamericanos. Te deseo lo mejor LeJuan James. Disfruto mucho tus vídeos que no se necesita ser vulgar para ser cómico y tener una gran audiencia. Sigue siendo humilde porque al humilde Dios lo ensalza pero al arrogante Dios lo humilla. (Lucas 18:14) Bendición!
