    Proud

    I love being Latina and I like our culture but I just don't like that everything here in the U.S.A is about Mexicans, it's like people from Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Columbia, Venezuela and other countries don't even exist :(

    Being Mexican-american

    I am Mexican by culture and American by both culture and birth. I do not speak Spanish. Growing up only my grandparents spoke Spanish and that was mainly when they didn't want us to know what they were saying. I tried taking Spanish in school, I just didn't get it. I can...

    I love my Puerto Rican culture

    and everything. As a very young child, I didn't really care for it but now I love it. My native language is Spanish and I'm proud to be Latina. :-)

    Hola :)

    You know what irritates me the most? Whenever a Hispanic woman does not embrace her culture. She shows shame and pretends to be "white". Everyone should be proud of where they're from whether you're white, black, purple, or orange. I am so proud of my ethnicity. My mother's from...

    I'm white but also part latina (Ecuadorian).

    I'm 25% latina and about 75% white. My dad is half white and half latino and my grandfather who is from Ecuador is 100%. I speak Spanish but not fluently. I'm proud to be part Ecuadorian. :)

    I'm an American but I was born in Mexico.

    My family is from Mexico and we moved to the USA when I was a year old. My great grandfather from my mom's side of the family is from Spain. I'm proud to be Latina.
