A M'ija to Meet: Claudette, Honduran

claudette.jpgWhat I love about being Latina:  The way we talk with our whole bodies, not just our mouths. 

What I love about being Americana:  The way I can be whomever I choose to be, and then change my mind if I want to. 

My biggest challenge in growing up Latina in America:  Not meeting anyone’s expectations as to how I should behave.  

My biggest support in growing up Latina in America:  My family who criticized me lovingly and encouraged me to do whatever made me happy.                                           

Why I am beautiful:  I am beautiful because I am the offspring of two wonderfully beautiful people with kind hearts, brave souls and a hearty sense of humor; not to mention patience and love beyond limitations. I hope to someday pass these traits on to my own hija.
