I was born in Italy but have only been there for the very first 3 years of my life. My father is an American and mother Italian. Afterwards, we all moved to Maine and have been living there since (I'm now 22 and have absolutely no recollection of what Italy looks like nor its places; I only know it through photos and being told by family members).
Many sentences and words were taught to me during my toddler years but I forgot most of it. As of now I can only say certain things in Italian such as ''hi, how are you, bye, my name is, few phrases and counting from 1-10 but that's about it and my Italian accent sucks.
I feel kind of dumb sometimes. I'm basically an Italian that can't speak Italian fluently.

That's ok. My dad is from Mexico and I heard him and other people talknspanish all the time but they never taught me. I learned some Spanish by matching phrases and words with certain actions as a child. My family members (cousins and my dad), always made fun me because I could never speak Spanish like they could. I couldn't even say a full sentence in Spanish. I was dropped off in Mexico around 3 years old for two weeks, and I didn't gain shit lol I ended up learning a little bit of Spanish from the Spanish classes I took in college. I lost my accent a long long time ago. So I sound white as hell when I speak Spanish. The only person in my family who didn't make fun of me while spoke, was my grandfather. But now, no one speaks to me because apparently I have an awhile personality lmao karma can be a bitch to my family0
