Why seeing Gina Rodriguez on the cover of Women's Health was so refreshing

This Saturday morning, I needed a pick me up and reading something inspirational and powering is always the ticket. Well, I started out with my usual cup of coffee and watched Jane the Virgin to distract me. Like every morning, I check all of my social media and sweeping through Twitter is nothing unusual. I then came across Gina Rodriguez being talked about and I decided to follow the trend and I came across Women's Health magazine and right in the cover was Gina Rodriguez.

#ChicaPoderosa

I am a chica poderosa because I’m proud of my Mexican roots, I’m independent, and I do everything I can to help the Latina community. I’m a first generation Mexican American and I cannot be more proud. Growing up I had to translate everything for my parents, make doctor appointments for my entire family, and even help my siblings…See More

I hope to one day be a Latina Hero

I do hope one day to be a Latina hero and as a Latina hero I would like to be known as someone who was understanding, not scared to voice her opinions, and who was a friend to everyone and anyone who needed one.  In this growing world, so many new things are happening around us that sometimes it’s difficult to find someone who can truly understand us or at least not judge us. I’ve seen it time and time again in not only the Latina community, but in every community. People slowly start feeling…See More

Alone Time

Being Latina means having a huge family. Meeting a new cousin or tia at almost every party and listening to your parents tell stories of when they were young, little cousins running around, not being able to keep a secret because before you know it all your tia's are already talking about it. Ive been through this many, many times. Growing up I didn't have enough time for myself and I only had 2 siblings, but when I started college and HAD to be alone quite a bit, I grew to really enjoy…See More
