Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

  Early sexual activity and teen pregnancy are major issues facing teen girls. However most often the root of these problems is that a lot of girls develop a low self-esteem. If a girl sees herself as worthless or feels bad about herself, how can she stand up for herself and make good decisions? In the media and even through peers, girls are taught that they are supposed to be just pretty faces and nothing else. Low self-esteem causes girls to stop believing in themselves. This is why i think low self-esteem is an issue people should pay more attention to.

I absolutely agree. I believe that is the reason so many young girls are jeopardizing their future because they were never taught or had someone to believe in them in the first place. Low self-esteem is a big set back in taking chances in life and making healthy discussions for the future not the immediate future. That's why I love outlets like Latinitas which helps you find your voice and gain that self-confidence. Also, love those Barbie movies that teach you no matter what anyone says, you are special.. Great message for girls of any age! LOVE IT!
