A M'ija to Meet: Raquel, Cuban


What I love about being Latina:  Our commitment to family and our willingness to laugh easily and often.

What I love about being Americana:  The opportunities I have as a woman in this country, rock n’ roll, and FREEDOM.

My biggest challenge in growing up Latina in America:  Overcoming preconceived notions and stereotypes.  Educating others on the differences WITHIN different Latin cultures and countries.

My biggest support in growing up Latina in America:  My darling and dear gringa friends who love my culture and embrace it! 

Why I am beautiful:  Because I take every opportunity I can to enjoy life and try to spread that joie de vivre wherever I go and with whomever I meet!
