LatinitasMagazine.org - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Why are our Latinitas proud to be Latinas?

"Yo estoy orgullosa de ser Latina porque conozco a muchas niñas y aprendemos de cada una como son. Yo estoy orgullosa de ser Latina."

-Michelle

"Yo estoy orgullosa de ser Latina porque los Latinos somos el impulso de los Estados Unidos. Estoy orgullosa de ser Latina porque he rompido los estereotipos que tienen para los Latinos. Estoy orgullosa de ser Latina porque tomo buenas decisiones y soy perseverante en lo que trato de hacer."

-Heidi

I'm proud to be a Latinita because we are learning how to be a better friend and how to be better together.

-Sabina

"I'm proud to be African American because other people have fought for us to have rights in the world. For me I feel empowered to be who I am and wouldn't change it for the world. With all the black people we have rising up in the world gives me the strength to be strong and courageous. I hope to inspire others to feel comfortable in their own skin.

-Shavontee

I wanted to include Shavontee's insight because Latinitas welcomes girls from other identities and not only Latinas; also because I think that as a minority as well the experiences of Latinas and African Americans are somehow similar.
