Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

I love my Hispanic heritage, and I love being a Latina. I love that I don't fit in with the "normal" image of young women, the kind that only do what they are told by others. I love being independent most of all. Even though I have a close knit family, they are supportive enough to let me go after my dreams and not object to that, unlike some other families. My values are already very established for my age, and I attribute that to my family and my culture. I love the family side of the Hispanic culture; the one where your whole family gets together at the same time and its a huge celebration of food and obnoxiously loud Mariachis.
As a Latina, I have curves. Although I don't always like these curves, I appreciate them. I struggle a lot with my body image, but I am slowly beginning to accept my hourglass shape.
One of my other favorite parts of the Hispanic culture is the food. My mom's food is amazing, and most hole-in-the-wall restaurants are delicious. My favorite dish is green enchiladas with chicken, NO onions. I also love mole and menudo.
I love being a Latina for all of the above reasons, because all of the above make me who I truly am.
