I’m a 66 year old Boricua who was born in “El Barrio” NYC. That’s 99th St. & 2nd Avenue for those who are not clear where “El Barrio” is.
At this late stage of my life, I’m really trying to connect with “like-minded” individuals who consider themselves “Expatriates.” I know the literal translation of expatriate is someone who was born in one country, but currently lives in another country. However, in researching the definition of “Expatriate,” I’ve found that it is really up to individual interpretation! So, that being said, I consider myself “Puertoriqueño” by virtue of the fact that my parents were both born in Puerto Rico, migrated to the US, and I was born in NYC. Not my fault, not my choice, but there’s are millions just like me, so it is what it is.
As a recent member of the Indigenous Caribbean Network, I’d like to connect and interact with other “Boricuas” in my geographic. I live in Southern NJ. I own a 1 1/2acre farm with a 100+ year old home. To provide some context; I grew up on the streets of El Barrio (1965-1975), was in the drug game (1975-1990), went to prison (1990-1994), saw the light, and worked in non-profit (1994-2006) trying to give back and reconcile my past with my present. I became semi-retired after working in Camden, NJ for 3 years.
So that’s the long and the short of my life. I want to connect with other Boricuas in my geographic.
HOW’S ABOUT A REACH OUT!!!
We can take it from there if you’re feeling adventurous!!!
