It’s because I’m Latina that I got all my jobs and became successful, the “Latina mark” became my “Latina glow”!
I’m very proud to be Latina. I’m proud to be a strong and independent woman since I was in high school. My mother , following her mother steps, was a very strong woman who taught me to be independent, be tough and appear to be tougher when feeling week, use Sabor on everything, and never let boys touch my private parts. Strong women are the essence of my family and we all have personalities that standout in a room; opinionated, loud and orgullosas of who we are and do, it is in our core and we can”t help it.
My culture is so deeply rooted, it’s funny at times! Following superstitions such as lifting your feet when passing over train tracks because it will prevent me from ever getting married, although I’ve been married for 10 years! Putting my purse on the floor because it will keep me broke, throwing salt over your right shoulder after dropping it or it will mean bad luck. These are things my grandma told me that stood with me forever! My culture is what gave me my thick skin that helps me to overcome any helps me overcome obstacles and barriers I encounter in life.
