What Is Being “Latina”?

What is being “Latina”? Such a popular term. Is it packed tightly in a box? Does mainstream decide what it is?

Dig deeper. We push to be ourselves- our cultura, our language, our foods, our melanin, our men, our ancestors, our music are rich in colors, shape, and diversity. I’m not the magazine Latina, I am not the telenovela size 4 I’m not the long hair straighten by redisado and burnt scalp.

Soy mujer Latina Caribeña con historia y passion.  Con curvas, con piel que le encanta el caliente del sol, con sangre que llama las olas del mar caribeña que mi cuerpo wraps around its waters.

Que? Soy Latina!
