A M'ija to Meet: Angela, Puerto Rican


What I love about being Latina: The ability to speak two languages and the wonderful customs and traditions. I love mi gente, mi familia y mi cultura. But most importantly my parents for always reminding me of the importance of la familia, nuestra sangre latina y nuestras tradiciones.

What I love about being Americana: As an Americana I love the choice of freedom of speech. Having the freedom to voice my opinions, also the ability to have access to almost anything I desire to do and learning that only I can limit myself.

My biggest challenge in growing up Latina in Americana:
trying to get the point across that Latinos can do more than labor work. I grew up not only Latina but also have worked in the corporate environment for almost 19 years. I have been discriminated, underestimated because of my ethnicity and my gender. The biggest challenge has been and will continue to be proving the company that a Latina woman can accomplished and achieved just as much as anyone else.

My biggest support in growing up Latina in America:
My mother and my sisters. My mother instilled in me great morals and values, and the importance of giving love and helping others and always to follow my dreams.

Why I am beautiful: I am beautiful because my dark hair and brown eyes is a residual of my native people who harvested this earth with respect & honor. I am beautiful because my heart & soul is filled with compassion, empathy and justice. I am beautiful because I have a caring heart, I volunteer and care for others. I am beautiful because I am generous and genuine. I am beautiful because I am happy and positive and transmit my love for life to others.
