Hey guys, I'm Laura.
Notice I didn't say Laura because my name is actually Laura
Now, when I came to this country from Venezuela, when I was
seven years old, straight to Miami.
People started calling me Laura and I didn't understand.
I was like, hold up, wait a minute, I'm seven years old and I
know that's not how you pronounce my name.
I don't like my name in English because it sounds like you have
balls in your mouth.
I prefer to say Laura.
I don't say a Richard.
I say Richard, I don't say Salta.
I see Samantha with a which doesn't exist in Spanish because
I learned because I'm polite and I respect your name.
So if I could say Christopher instead of Christofer, y'all
could say Laura instead of Laura.
Laura like that song, Laura and Laura.
Laura de Mi As you can see, there's also a song for my name.
It's one of the other things that I have to live with.
Every time someone finds out my name is Laura, they start and
I gotta sing along because if not, I'll be rude and I'll be a
bitch who doesn't sing along to my name that's called Laura
and you need to stop it.
I've known you for last but not least my name happens to be in
one of the biggest Spanish TV shows ever that everyone knows
it's called, there's also a song to that.
This show happens to be a mix between Doctor Phil and Maury
But the worst part of it all is when people start saying, oh
your name is Laura, like the show, like the show and then they'll
act out the whole thing.
You need the lotus and you need the lo lo and then I have to be
like, get past gracia.
I'm just a little puppet.
Let me know in the comments below if people butcher your name
in English or Spanish or if there's a show based around your
name or a song and remember guys, it's Laura, it's not Laura
And if you meet me, don't sing to me or call me sing.
