About Juana Bordas

In the traditions of many cultures, a person tells his or her story when meeting someone. This is a way to honor one’s family, connect in a meaningful way, and share unique experiences.

My mother, four brothers, my sister, and I stood at the ship’s rail watching the image of our beloved Nicaragua become smaller and smaller and then finally disappear into the Caribbean Sea. In the hull of a banana boat, we rocked and swayed, across the Gulf of Mexico.  We docked in Tampa, Florida, and fell into the welcoming arms of mi Papa. He had arrived earlier, earning money to bring his familia to America so his children could have a better life.
