“Am I Latin? Am I American? What the hell am I? I love my culture and I’m very proud of my culture.”

America Ferrera

America Ferrera is my favorite actress. Not only is she beautiful and humble, but she is also Honduran-American (like me) and a humanitarian. It is hard for me to find Latina women that I can relate to so much. Many of the idolized Latina celebrities tend to be very thin. Yes, they have curves, but it’s still hard to relate when they are so thin.  She always plays very strong female characters who are proud of where they come from, what they look like, and handle the challenges thrown at them very well. She is definitely someone I look up to.
