“Me being vocal about everything that I feel is political. Me existing is already political. I am a Latina but I am also Afro-Latina. So, I am a descendent from slaves. We are women that are erased, nobody tells you about Afro-Latinas in history books, you don’t see us on TV, and people think all Latinas look like Sofia Vergara. It is a very political act – me daring to claim back my heritage. I am saying ‘you don’t believe that women like me exist but we do. You know what. You cannot shut me up. I am here’.”
