Latino Voices in the Community: Latino Oral History Project


Name: Alejandra Best, Place of origin: Mexico City, Mexico, Place of residence: Cincinnati, Ohio, Gender: Female, Occupation: Graphic Designer, Retired




I interviewed Mrs. Best using Zoom. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, but was born in Mexico City, Mexico. During the interview Mrs. Best was at her house, in the living room where she used her computer. The setting was very calm because she was at a tranquil place without any distractions. Even though the interview was conducted by Zoom, we were able to talk peacefully. Mrs. Best talked about her life and experiences in the United States, and Cincinnati and the transitions that she made during her life. She also spoke about important Mexican traditions and what Mrs. Best values most in life.
