Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

My name is Isabel Hernandez and I recently became a volunteer at Latinitas. I am 18 years old and a psychology major at UTEP. I have a Yorkshire terrier named Charlotte and I enjoy reading books on and learning about current affairs.

I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization because I wanted to contribute to something that I feel strongly about. I have always felt privileged to be a Hispanic woman. Whether that means I have to work harder to achieve my goals and aspirations or not, I am proud. 

I concur with the idea that despite being discouraged by society and having the odds stacked against them, Latinas should have the opportunity to thrive in the U.S. Therefore, I hope to play a part in the empowerment of girls and encourage them to break the stigma surrounding them.
