Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

I would definitely have to say that I have more than one shero. In fact, I believe that every single woman around me is my shero. Not to sound overly dramatic or anything, but I think the world is pretty unfair to women. We earn less money for the same work men do, we get sexualized for every single little thing, and the amount of violence against women is appalling. Despite all the hardships women have to face, we all wake up and face the world. I think that's pretty inspiring.

A woman who wakes up with depression and still finds the energy to go about her day and complete all her tasks is my shero. A working mom who has to drop off her kids at daycare and doesn't get to spend too much time with them because she has to provide for her family is my shero. A stay-at-home mom who has to wake the kids up, cook for them, clean the house, and help the kids with their homework, proving that women can really do it all, is my shero. A girl who goes around telling jokes so other people will share in her laughter is my shero. Girls who, instead of tearing each other down, find wonderful things about each other and compliment one another are my sheroes. 

Although those might all seem like everyday occurrences that shouldn't really be called heroic, I think they are. Little things always add up to something bigger, and it's no different in this case. I think women who go out of their way to be kind, hard working, thoughtful, radiant, and resilient are truly inspiring. 

Women in general are my sheroes.
