Leading Other Latinos Through Our Examples

Mentoring Makes Everyone Stronger

One quality that sets us Latinos apart from others is that we treat everyone like family. We don’t tear each other down, we build others up. We’ve learned from our hardships, we’ve picked ourselves up, and we do our best to help others through their struggles in different ways. Bernardette Pinetta works with students to give them access to technology while Melissa Lopez acts as an ambassador to empower younger women. See how other young Latinos are paving the way for future generation.

mitú challenges you to tell us what being a Latino in the US means to you in your own story, with a social media post, a meme, or any way you feel most comfortable using #WeAreAmerica. Together, we will create a beautiful portrait of what it means to be Latino in the US.

Latino men of the past may have been all hung up with what it means to be manly, but those days are GONE. These Latino boyfriends prove that the machista mentality is a thing of the past.

He knows how to do your laundry and even handles your delicates with extra care.

Because it’s 2015 and we believe in equal rights.

He has a way with chiles rellenos that makes your mouth water and knees weak.

Maybe he spent time with mami in the kitchen or he just learned to impress you. Either way, it proves men belong in the kitchen too.

Somehow he is better at styling your hair than your girlfriends.

He’s not too proud to help you with hygiene.

No matter how tough he acts with his compadres, your tesoro is always willing to let loose with you.

He’s not embarrassed to coordinate outfits.–WWnhJJBc/

Because he knows you want to do it for the ‘gram.

Gone are the days of the woman taking care of the man.

He understands you need TLC.

He’ll take all those cheesy couple photos just to make you smile.

No need to be a total bro here.

Rocking your purse in public is no longer up for question.

Honestly, it is the evolution of relationships. Remember abuelito holding abulita’s purse while you shopped with them?

He has no shame showing the world that he is all yours.

Mainly to brag, but also to show just how important you are to him.

He totally gives you that mani you desperately need.

And he don’t play when it comes to your fierce French tips.

He’s not too manly to treat your younger brothers as if they were his own siblings.

And seeing him with Miguelito on Saturday afternoons still makes your heart flutter.

And he has a funny way of commemorating the special days together.

It’s all about being your man.
