Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

how did your culture/language influence your identity

There are many ways a person culture can change or influence there identity. Many of which help them be the person that they are now. For example for me my culture has made me more independent. As a Mexican-American i have two different cultures that influence the way i think and the way i let them guide me. Having both type of cultures helps be able to identify with who you are. For me it showed me how to be more independent and have that strong character that is needed sometimes in our society. I have learned that i can do anything i set my mind to i don't  need someone else for me to able to achieve what i set myself to do. I can do just then same things as everyone else. It also comes with being able to to be more unspoken and have the strong character that most Mexicans have. We tend to be stubborn at times but we also don't let anyone step over us or make us feel unwelcome. With us having a strong character it helps be able to stand up to those type of people in our society. Over all being latina, chicana, Hispanic etc. all have an influence on your identity.
