This Hustling Latina Has Everyone On The Internet Saying, “SLAYY”

If there’s one influencer who’s hyping people up and changing perspectives, it’s Jennifer Ruiz, also known as La China. This Latina with 1 million followers on Instagram has been called everything from chingona to queen to boss to self-made, and super mom. Here are some of the empowering things she has said that so many women are clapping to. ??

1. Love yourself and be yourself before anything.

Like a true queen sitting on her throne, she keeps it real embracing her flaws.

2. You don’t have to prove anything to other people. If you’re happy, then that’s the only thing that matters.

Why worry about other people’s approval? Just do you, boo.

3. Never feel less about yourself because of another person’s disapproval.


Like Jenny puts it, “Life is too short to be changing who you are to please others.”

4. Don’t associate with people who bring negativity into your life – no matter who they are.

Keep a circle of family and friends in your life who bring nothing but positive vibes. Even if that circle is small, it’s quality over quantity ??

5. If you have haters who try to bring you down, just flip your hair and flaunt your success.

Just like the song says: “I dedicate this to all of those who didn’t believe in me. To the teachers who didn’t understand me, to all of the laws that put me in prison when all I was doing was trying to help my family. Look at me now.”

6. Never be afraid to do something, no matter how difficult or risky it might be.


Because if you don’t do it now, then you might regret it later.

7. Don’t let any moment of failure discourage you from going after your dreams.


You can’t compare yourself to other people’s success, because everyone’s journey to success is different.

8. Remind yourself each day that you’re THE SH*T. ??


You just have to hype yourself up or nobody will.

9. Always follow your passion and keep yourself happy.


Because it’s not healthy to dismiss the importance of self love and happiness.

10. Never settle for a job that you’re not truly happy with.

If you’re tired of working so hard for nothing, then make it something. Hustle hard to get where you want.

11. Last, but not least, remember that you can do absolutely anything that you put your mind to. No matter what, never give up.


The world is yours, bby girl.

Yesterday Snapchat celebrated International Women’s Day by creating a filter for one of Mexico’s most iconic artists: Frida Kahlo.

There’s a good chance you saw these snaps popping up on social media during #IWD.

Head of International Affairs for the Frida Kahlo Corporation Beatriz Alvarado explained why they teamed up with Snapchat for IWD:

In the age of the selfie, Frida is considered to be the first selfie artist; she told a story of love, life, strength and passion [through] her self-portraits. Today people identify themselves with Frida’s life and legacy, and to honor her legacy, the Frida Kahlo Corporation in collaboration with Snapchat shares a lens with her image to capture the faces of all her followers around the world.

The Frida Kahlo filter added a banner, braids, a floral crown, earrings, and red lipstick.

Users were also given Kahlo’s signature unibrow.

Everyone channeled their inner Frida with the filter.

Kim Kardashian gave her followers a taste of the Frida Kahlo-inspired filter.

Adorable.

Yeah, that’s the Joker (a.k.a. Jared Leto) trying out the filter.

And while many people were feeling it…

Others raised political concerns about the Frida Kahlo filter.

Many Twitter users thought the filter went against Kahlo’s political and artistic values. They were convinced Frida would have hated it.

Others on Twitter called out the filter for making Snapchat users’ skin lighter.

The Guardian posted a photo showing how much the filter lightened Frida’s skin in this well-known self-portrait.


On the left was Frida’s own artwork. On the right is the same image processed by Snapchat’s filter. As you can see, the filter clearly lightened up Kahlo’s complexion.

Others were annoyed that many Snapchat users didn’t even know who Frida Kahlo was.

Because for some users, the Kahlo filter was just a unibrow filter…

…and Kahlo’s fans were not happy with that.

And there were those that were legit diggin’ the unibrow look.

So here’s a question:
