Testimonials

Ginger A.
Parent of an Escritora

"There have been so many invaluable gifts Somos Escritoras has given my daughters, but the most important one, to me, has been replacing the shame felt about their culture with gratitude and pride. Somos Escritoras exposed them to the art and writing of other Latinas. For my daughters, this was the first time they saw women who looked like them centered for sharing their voices through art and writing. They realized that their culture and experiences were not only unique but also worth celebrating. Somos gave them the ability to love and embrace their Latinidad and use it as another powerful gift to move forward.
