I have never felt that I have been treated less for being Latina. I think it has been beneficial for me, being able to speak in two languages is great especially in the region we live in.
I have noticed that within our Mexican culture we have a lot of stereotypes. My mom’s family comes from Guadalajara, Jalisco and my dad’s from Mazatlan, Sinaloa. I have had people ask me many times what type of music I like and when I don’t say Banda they ask “But doesn’t your family come from Sinaloa?”
Yes, but still I listen to metal.
When it comes to sports my family from Guadalajara are soccer fans and my family from Mazatlan are baseball fans. It is very common for people in our culture to ask if you are from a certain part of the country because of appearance.
I think that by now people who have grown up in Tijuana should know that it is a city full of people from all over the country.
