What I love about myself:   I still get excited about new projects, ideas, and concepts.

My biggest challenge in accepting my body and beauty:  As I age, (now I am 62), I have to accept that my body can’t do the things it could twenty years ago.  However, as I age I accept my limitations more easily.

My biggest support in learning to appreciate myself:  My inner voice.

Beauty is: The ability to see the hand of Mother Nature at work in everything about you and around you.  (Mother Nature didn’t make mistakes!)
 
Why I am strong:  I was bred for it from the loins of a strong woman I called “Mother”. 
 
Why I am beautiful:  Because I am lucky enough to attract incredible people to my side who are ALWAYS beautiful in one dimension or another.
 
What women must know:  You CAN have everything in this life, you just can’t have it all at once.  There is a time for every season.  Have patience.  Life will unfold with a delicious cornucopia of experiences.

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.
