Staying Close To Family Even When Far Away

Posted by:  |  Category: Ana's Blog



I left El Salvador when I was 18 years old to study college here in the U.S. Back then, in the very early nineties, we really didn’t have any affordable options to communicate with our family abroad. Not even email! *Gasp* Howdidwedoit?

Over the course of two decades, the speed, ease and affordability of communication has made it so easy for us to stay in touch with our loved one who live abroad. It’s even allowed for my daughter to develop and maintain a relationship with her familia and the prima in El Salvador she loves so much!

How do you stay close to your family and friends even when you live so far away? Join us tomorrow for a Twitter party with Cricket Wireless to share how you remain close even if far away from friends and family during the holiday seasons.
