The Tampa Latin Student Experience: A Look at the History of My Community | Latin Times Media & Magazine
The Tampa Latin Student Experience: A Look at the History of My Community By Alex Suarez I am going on my fourth semester at Hillsborough Community College. My major is in Digital Television and Media Production. My main campus is the Ybor campus, and I live in Ybor City, which is known as the Latin Quarter of Tampa. I first found out about the Latin Times magazine at a job fair on campus. I have previously wrotefor our College paper, the Hawkeye Newspaper, which is based out of Ybor and distributes to all our campuses. I also had a radio show on campus and volunteered at a local station as part of our radio course out of Ybor. My father is Peruvian, therefore I am Latin. I lived for two years in Peru during part of my adolescence, and picked up Spanish there. I also improved my Spanish living in Miami for a time, I went to school a year in Mass Communications/Journalism at Miami Dade College. In 2006 I moved to Spain where I lived for three years. I studied other languages in Spain
