My mother has brown skin and she is very proud to be Latina. Everything she does, from the way she dresses to the way she dances, projects her strong sense of identity. I inherited many of these traits from my mother, from my confidence and natural sense of rhythm and traits to my curvy body type. I attribute all of these strong and beautiful qualities to the Latina that runs in my blood.”
