I grew up watching Disney and Nickelodeon, the shows that were on during my early years will always be a part of childhood. Besides the clothing and the technology used in the shows, the whole look of the protagonist has changed. The blonde, funny all american girl that was popular in the 90s and early 2000's now has evolved into a different image. As I flipped through the old channels that I grew up and identified with, I came to understand that the new image is the Latina girl. It only took 10 years! More and more girl protagonists on popular channels have hispanic last names and are of darker complexion. I am so glad for this change, the media is finally doing something right and this is to acknowledge the Latina girl population and showcase this demographic as young, talented and intelligent individuals. Does this mean, NO MORE RANCHERO HATS?
