What I love about being Latina: Our culture, history, and our strenghth

What I love about being Americana: The options to be able to be and do what ever we set our minds to. Freedom.

My biggest challenge in growing up Latina in America:
People not knowing I’m Mexican and when they find out – they some how look at me like I’m less of a person.

My biggest support in growing up Latina in America: My family, and those individuals that believe and support me in all that I do.

Why I am beautiful: Because I love with passion. I’m honest and caring and loyal.

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
