we interviewed a few of our employees to get a better understanding of how their cultural traits play a role in day-to-day life and how it influences their banking habits. Nancy is a Branch Representative at our Cactus Branch, and she’s sharing her insight about how her Mexican heritage has influenced her life.
Mexican Independence Day. Though this holiday is on September 16th, we celebrate the day before.
Traditional. Both of my parents have more than one job. I was taught at a very early age to always have savings for a rainy day.
Growing up, I was taught to keep our traditions alive. If we had kids, we were to show them and explain to them how important our traditions are.
My mother. She taught me to never give up.
My mother’s cornbread, tamales, menudo and, of course, capirotada. It’s kinda like a bread pudding but not. HAHA
Growing up, my parents made sure that we kept our traditions alive even after we moved on with our lives. My goal since I was younger was to make sure that my father became a US citizen. A few years ago, I was able to make that happen. That has been one of my greatest accomplishments in life.
