Hello, my name is Liliana Almeida. I was born in Lisbon and immigrated to the US when I was 8 years old. My parents always insisted that I keep the knowledge of the Portuguese language and culture, so they enrolled me in the Portuguese school. I am very grateful for this insistence, because today I have the advantage of knowing how to communicate in several languages, which brings me great advantages in my professional life. I’m very proud of my Portuguese roots and that’s why I want to offer that same pride to my children. I know that with the help of the Escola Portuguesa de Union they learn the Portuguese language and culture. If you have any questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
