Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

It's been a great Spring Break so far for me! This year I thought I'd check out some of the free events SXSW has to offer on I RSVPd to so many free events and it's lead to some pretty good times so far. 

My most awesome moment, so far, would be attending the premiere party for USA's new show, Graceland. My boyfriend and I waited in line for a while, but it was totally worth it for free drinks and dancing... ALSO the stars of the show were there too! 

As soon as I spotted Vanessa Ferlito, I was so starstuck that I didn't know how to react! Everyone around her and the other cast members was so casual and here I was, barely moving and obviously staring! Now that I think of it, I must've looked funny! Haha. 

I finally got the courage to ask for pictures with Vanessa Ferlito, Danny Sunjata, and Manny Montana! They all said yes and were very friendly! 

Manny Montana actually struck up conversation with me after our picture. When I had asked him for a picture, he said, "Of course, can I have a picture with you too?" 

After, he was what my ethnicity was and where was I from. I told him my parents were from Mexico and I was from Laredo, Texas. He said he was from California and that he was Hispanic. 

I can't believe how interested he was in the people going up to him! 

The best part was when I instagrammed my picture with him. I quoted him when he told me, "You're so tiny! I could pick you up!" AND later, Manny Montana tweeted at me saying that it was great talking to us! 

During the event, those who instagrammed photos in the party and used the hashtag #gracelandtv had their photo wirelessly printed! 

I left the party with all the printouts of the pics I instagrammed! 

This has been a good Spring Break!

How are you spending your Spring Break?
