Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Image result for what is a chica poderosaI am a chica poderosa because I do not let anyone tell me what I should or should not do with my life. Stereotypes are held up against us Latina women and I think it is important to not believe in the stereotypes, such as Latinas being housewives, Latinas being caretakers, or Latinas being submissive women. I want to steer away from the stereotypes brought upon our society about Latina women. 

I am not going to let anyone tell me not to pursue a degree in Social Work just because it does not pay good and it is seen as the highest jobs pursued by women. No one can tell me I am too smart to be a social worker because I believe in impacting other's lives and focusing on their needs to help them succeed. Just like the Powerpuff girls, I may be bubbly and cute on the outside, but on the inside I am filled with power, knowledge, and strength. 

The advice I would give chicas is to follow your heart and never let others control your life. Be you, be yourself, and be independent.
