Actually, a lot of us are only children ?.

We’re all hoping to get married by 23 and have our third kid by 26.

Sorry, many of us are focused on our career.

Or are teen parents.

Wrong, AGAIN.

We’re as uber religious as our parents were.

This is probably the only time we really prayed.

We all look the way Latinas are supposed to look like.

The oldest sterotype in the book. We’re as blond as Anahí and as golden as Celia Cruz and everything in between. There’s no such thing as looking Latina enough.

We devour spicy food.

Not even all Mexicans can handle the spice.

Spanish is our dominant language.

We sound like this when we speak English.

We’re from all over Latin America, hence the term Latino/a.
