I have been thinking lately about the funny phrases my parents said throughout my life and began to wonder if this had a negative effect on my public speaking and ability to write well.  Read this article from Urban.org titled Children of Immigrants. I think some of the facts are interesting. I don’t think this is an excuse to not succeed but its just an interesting read. Enjoy!
