I'm the Beauty and Fashion Staff Writer at MamásLatinas and a proud Dominicana! I was born and raised in Queens, New York and have hopes of one day moving to Manhattan. Obsessed with all things beauty and fashion, you'll normally find me either trying on a new lipstick, experimenting with DIY beauty remedies or bargain shopping. I graduated from Baruch College with a Journalism major and English Literature Minor in 2009, and have interned at various magazines like SELF, Latina, Popular Science and InStyle.

I know I'm Latina when...

I find myself eating platanos or bananas with every meal!

Breastfeeding mom on magazine cover makes EVERYONE freak out

Americans are SO weird about public breastfeeding, I don't know what it is. We can see a young woman walking down the street in short shorts that ride up her butt and show cheeks, but the second a mom pulls out her boob to breastfeed her baby, everybody feels uncomfortable and offended. This is why I wasn't the least bit surprised when I heard that newsstands were refusing to carry Hip Mama magazine's latest issue just because there's a woman on the cover breastfeeding her child. Seriously, what is the big deal?
