@Orgullosa’s #31DaysBeingLatina Photo Challenge
I am so proud to be Latina. My culture is so deeply rooted in me I laugh at times at certain things I do and why it is I do them, STILL! Following superstitions such as not putting my purse on the floor because it will keep me broke or not letting my feet get swept over because it will prevent me from ever getting married. These are things my grandma told me that stood with me forever. My culture is something that has made me who I am and given me the thick skin needed to tackle the hardships in life. I was taught from young to be independent, use Sazon on everything and never let boys touch your private parts. Strong women are the essence of my family and we all have personalities that standout in a room; boisterous, opinionated and prideful, it is in our core to liven any moment.
September 15, 2014 marks the first day of National Hispanic Heritage and I have been invited by Orgullosa to participate in their first ever Instagram Photo Challenge #31DaysBeingLatina. I would love for all my fellow Latinas to join me on the challenge and lets take a trip down memory lane together. This daily photo challenge will be sure to bring you closer to home, fill your hearts and reflect on some of the best memories. We will be reposting some of your photos so check back on M3GLAM to see if your photo is featured. We are looking forward to share our #31DaysBeingLatina moments with all of you.
