Listen: Apple, Miami And La discussed on Latino USA
"You know that the first set of emojis for apple products were drafted by Colombian American woman, I was started as an internet apple in two thousand eight while she was still in college, and her first project was to develop emojis from their original Japanese versions into something new now over ten years later, those little images have become well for lack of a better word icon ick. Here's. La telling her story. When I moved from that to Miami, I did not speak a word of English. I remember entering my classroom full of kids and not being able to connect with anyone it was very frustrating. So I ended up doing was actually relying on mine drawing skills that I developed before moving and kind of communicating with my teachers and my classmates through pictures. And I noticed immediately power that image can have on someone even though do don't speak the language. Always relied in the feeling and that experience of trying to communicate with people in a really natural in simple way."
