Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

For the Love Yourself Lesson, the girls learned that sometimes what they see in the media isn't what it seems and that to compare themselves to those images is sometimes unrealistic. They wrote letters to themselves telling themselves things that they like and that they love themselves just the way they are. Here are their letters!

Dear Karina,

Karina, you are pretty on the inside. I love being myself. I love how I love soccer and how I am fast. I am perfect the way I am. I like how my hair is long. I love that I am silly and have glasses. I am a kind, generous girl. I love my smile. You are great at English and reading. I don't have to be perfect. I like the way I am.



Dear Monica,

I know you are a girl but you are good at what you do. I love the way your eyes glow. I love the way you smile. I love the your glasses look at everything. I love the way you pick your clothes. I love the way you are.



Dear Madelyn,

You are a genius and very pretty even though you sometimes use glasses. Your eyes are pretty . I love my hair. Don't feel different because you play basketball you are beautiful the way are are. You are very blessed the way you are!



Dear Faith,
