Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Irving Schwartz Club Celebrates Hispanic Heritage

     Because there are so many different cultures and ways of life, each one shaping our world, it is important to learn about and celebrate each and every one. Even if one is not of a particular heritage it never hurts to expand the mind. In observance of Hispanic Heritage month, Latinitas put together a lesson which helped the girls express why they are proud of their culture and expand not only their minds, but their love of their heritage.

     Though there was only one girl at the Irving Schwartz club to take part in this lesson, she had many colorful- and delicious- reasons to love being Hispanic. Here’s what she said about being a Latina:


     “I'm proud to be a Latinita because you can have fun and make new friends. You can also relate to your culture. I like how Mexican food tastes, for example carne asada and menudo. I also like how they dance folklorico and the music they play.”
