I despised not understanding why kids thought speaking French in school was weird. I wanted to just be Mexican and do Mexican things, but at the same time I loved my French school and my French teachers. I loved how my friends and I could publically be shady divas in French and not have anyone understand us. Before leaving, I spent months figuring out the identity I wanted to pack with me. I thought there was only space for one Sathya in my suitcase, but I quickly realized more Sathya’s were to come.
