Esteban remembers anecdotes and stories that his grandparents told him, as well as a moment he spent with them as a child. It was a moment that always created questions within him. Little by little he has grown up and found answers, and with these answers has gained a sense of cultural and ancestral belonging that he felt the need to know about and reaffirm.
