Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

In celebration of Women's History Month we asked our girls to write about a woman in history or in their life that they admire and reasons why they admire her.

I look up to my grandma because she was a teacher and was smart. She would help students in any way she can that is why  she was a great teacher. - Albina

I look up to my Nina because she is a teacher, nice, helpful and she likes to sing. - Brenda

I admire Rosa Parks because she was brave and sat on the front of the bus when it wasn't permitted for black women.- Joanna 

My mom is very special to me. I love her honesty and how hard she works for everything in her life. My mom cares for me and helps me I also love her cooking. - Lucia

I admire my mom cause she is unique and cares about me. She is the only person that takes care of me and my brothers. - Zara

Selena Quintanilla was a big role model for women in history because of her advanced music. There are many other important women in our history but she is my main one because she loved music just as much as I do.- Alexis

My grandma is very important to me because she was able to keep up with eight children and two of her children died. She is a very strong woman to me and she means a lot to me. She gives her attention to everyone. - Lizbeth

Susan. B. Anthony is remembered for fighting for women's rights. She helped women gain women's right to vote. - Mariana
