MEDIA MENTIONS

“Spanish has birthed one unique letter: ñ, pronounced “en-yeh.” The squiggly line above the n is called a tilde. Twelfth-century Spanish scribes used the tilde to shorthand the pairing of the same letter in a word: nn, aa, etc. Of all the Spanish letters that once carried a tilde, ñ is the sole survivor.”

“Denise Soler Cox’s passion project took close to two decades to manifest, but once she committed to it, there was no looking back.”

“Denise Soler Cox was 4 years old when she and her family traded an apartment in the Bronx for a house in the suburbs of Westchester County. For years, they were the only Latino family living in the area.”

“Growing up, Denise Soler Cox never really felt like she fit in wholly anywhere. At four years old, the Puerto Rican left familiar faces, voices and cultures when her family moved from the Bronx to the suburbs of Westchester County. There, she was the only Latina in the neighborhood, and that was a struggle. The kids teased her, often calling her “spic,” but, strangely, those same schoolchildren influenced her. Soon, her Spanish wasn’t the same, and she had secured the “gringa” nickname in her family.”

“For me, growing up as a first-generation American in Miami was comfortable. Mostly, all of the people I went to school with had a similar background, so things like speaking Spanglish and balancing two cultures were things I could bond with my friends over. Of course, not all Latinos have the same lucky experience – something Project Enye does an amazing job at capturing. The multi-platform documentary project gives a voice to the varied experiences of first-generation bicultural Latinos, allowing them to share what it’s like being an American-born child to parents of Spanish-speaking countries.”

“If words mean things, so do the letters that make them up. How many times have you received the message Feliz Ano Nuevo or Feliz Cumpleanos from your non-Latino (and in some cases Latino) friends? We can bet that it has occurred often enough to make you “cry in Spanish.” The rest of the world may never understand the importance of the letter ñ but that may soon change thanks to Project Eñye (ñ).”

“Denise Soler Cox is the visionary behind Project Eñye, a multimedia documentary project about first-generation American-born Latinos that uses cultural and familial stories to build community among this 16 million strong population. BeVisible sat down with Denise to learn more about the project, and the impact it’s having on representing the diversity of Latino experiences in the U.S. Denise’s mind is as dynamic as her project. She is a Latina journalist, entrepreneur, creator, and mother who is an inspiration to Latina millennials in multiple arenas.”

Ñ. Eñe. Not simply a diacritical mark but in Spanish a letter in its own right. A letter to represent the identity of the Spanish language and also in some way the Latino identity.
