Hola Kristy

As we are all from Spain here in the Spanish team we can't answer that with certainty. There is an interesting thread here where they talk precisely about that, if you want to have a look. 

I hope it's helpful.

Saludos

Here in central Mexico a lot of people use "y" but a few use "j".  It helps to listen to the pronunciation in your neighbourhood and copy the way that people speak, even if it turns out to be incorrect for school.  They'll appreciate it.
