Hispanic Celebration

By  | 

Saturday afternoon, a festival was held with a variety of activities, fun and games. Festival organizers say it was more than just about the fun though, it was to let those of international decent know they have a place to come, if they need advice or help.

“I’m very much a part of the community and I want to be a voice to the Hispanics.”

Fabiola Sims knows what it’s like to come and live in a foreign place. When she was 19 years old she left her home in Nicaragua to study in America.

“We come here, we have to learn how to drive, speak a new language and that’s the most horrible thing is not being able to communicate to someone.”

That’s why she wants to reach out to the Hispanic community in south-central Kentucky to let them know about the International Center in Bowling Green. Sims says it’s a great place to come and receive help.

The International Center is located at 806 Kenton Street in Bowling Green and is open to everyone. You can receive employment services; immigration assistance and translation services just to name a few.

Sims became an American Citizen in 2001 and says she’s thankful for the opportunity to come and live in America and hopes others following the same dream can do the same.
