Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Whenever someone tells me about a person I admire and has motivated me, my mother immediately comes to mind. Throughout her life she had many challenges to overcome. She had twins at the age of 17, she managed to continue to go to college and stay employed while caring for three children. The road was not a smooth one at all. She gives me all kinds of strength to continue going through my graduate program, work, and internship. All I have to do is think if she did, I can do it. To this day she is continuing her education and attending graduate school while taking care of my 5 year old brother with Autism. It is not an easy task. 

No matter what challenges in life she has taught me to continue and overcome them. She is a Latina of strength, compassion, intelligence, and wisdom.
