I'm a Staff Writer at MamásLatinas. I am a native New Yorker who graduated from NYU as a Journalism and English major in 2011. Throughout my undergrad career, I contributed regularly to NYU's paper, Washington Square News, and held internships at the Long Island Press, amNewYork, The New York Times Local: East Village, and Seventeen Magazine. A self-professed literature nerd and news junkie, I love to relax by reading magazines, newspapers, and books while sipping iced caramel macchiatos. I am addicted to shoes, coffee, yoga and all things John Hughes.I know I'm Latina when...
I could literally eat beans with or for every meal, with no problem whatsoever.

But both of these problems could be solved, thanks to a newly created app called Third Love. This app helps you find your bra size on your own, at home. How? By snapping a selfie!Continue Reading >
Barbie has been at the center of a body image debate for many years now but recently, the controversy has reached a whole new level. Between the doll's increasingly unrealistic proportions and the horrifying influence it seems to be having on some women, it's very clear that it's time for a change.
Well, thanks to a new crowdfunding campaign, we could soon be getting just that. Artist Nickolay Lamm, who gained online fame last year after creating a 3D-printed Barbie based on the average measurements of a 19-year-old, is now hoping to bring his version of the dolls to life. "Lammily" dolls, as he calls them, will be kind of like regular Barbies--except with more realistic looks and body.
All I can say to this is ... YES! What took so long?!Continue Reading >
