This is very important. For me. I realize my story is a little different.
In the same video, yoga teacher Hilaria Baldwin addresses the accusations about her accent, explaining that she suffers from insecurities because of the way she talks.
Baldwin said, "I'm that person who if I speak a lot of Spanish I tend to mix it up, and if I speak a lot of English then I mix that up." “When I try to work, I try to advertise a little more, but if I feel tense or upset or something like that then I start mixing the two.” “I try to speak more clearly in each language.” But sometimes I mess up It's, and it's not something I'm playing with so I want that to be very, very clear, ”he said.

Baldwin went on to clarify the controversy over her name. She said that when she was younger, she was called Hillary in the United States and Hilaria in Spain. After years of using both, she said she decided to simplify and only use Hilaria, which is the name his family calls her.
"I think we can all be clear it's the same name, just a slight difference in the letters," she said. “I think we shouldn't be upset about that. Whatever you want to call me, I will respond to both.” Baldwin concluded, “This is a country with many different cultures, and I think we can be different parts of ourselves with different people.” "I feel really lucky to have grown up with two cultures, she grew up speaking two languages. She also indicated that she knows she is white and that her ethnic makeup includes" too many things. "

Baldwin said, "I was born in Boston and spent much of my childhood in Spain, and my primary family lived in Spain. But I used to move between Spain and America but I came here when I was 19 to go to college and never came back to Spain again to reside.
Hilaria Baldwin said that she took the matter very seriously to clarify this matter and matters not surprisingly in a multicultural and multi-ethnic country and said that she apologizes for it. But at this point, I started to feel as if I was being attacked for being who I was, but I can't find a correct and clear answer to the reason for this attack. "
