Tracey is from Trinidad and Tobago, a dual-island country lined in the Caribbean.  With grandparents from Lebanon on one side and great-great-grandparents from East India on the other, Tracey knows all too well what a melting pot of cultures looks like.  Her husband’s pursuit of his dream to be able to become a U.S trained surgeon led them to moving to San Antonio, Texas in 2010. 

Tracey has her own family now and she can’t help but compare her childhood to her daughter’s as the differences between cultures surfaces.  Her interview will remind all of us that countries and cultures alike have values and teachings we can incorporate into our own lives, creating a space for celebrating each other as one.
