Hi there, I can't be more excited to share that I helped with the design of the proposal for the Arepa/flatbread emoji on the Unicode list.
Arepas are a popular type of food made of ground maize dough, formerly of South America, specifically from Venezuela and Colombia.
I'm originally from Venezuela, and I still eat arepas almost every day, so I'm thrilled that I had the opportunity to collaborate with this initiative.
This emoji will be officially in the Unicode emojis for 2020, stay tuned.
