Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

I recently saw a story about the Mexican town of Guadalupe getting a new mayor elected into office. This position was filled by the only person to apply for the job...20 yr old Marisol Valles Garcia, a criminology major. She was the only brave one to apply after the towns last mayor was killed in June by drug related violences. According to the news, Marisol says she was up for the challenge when no one else was to show that people are tired of being scared and want to move on. My congrats and best wishes to this young lady. This is truly aspiring. What do you guys think?

A newspaper in Spain called her the "bravest woman in the world"!
