Telling Them I'm Moving in with My Boyfriend
Play • 20 min

Cris Ramos Greene is the author of Embrace That Girl, a memoir about figuring out adulthood and coming to terms with her Cuban-American identity. She talks to Juleyka about breaking the news to her traditional parents that she was moving in with her boyfriend.
