The Importance of Celebrating Heritage and Continuing Traditions

The Importance of Celebrating Heritage and Continuing Traditions

One thing that I always try to teach my children is that although we are American, understanding our heritage gives us an idea of how our ancestors lived and how and why our traditions came to be.

My parents …

How Mexican Heritage is Reflected in TitleMax

How Mexican Heritage is Reflected in TitleMax

Being part of the TitleMax® team has allowed me to see and feel the warmth of the Mexican culture. I really enjoy the way my Hispanic customers open up to me.
