BEING HISPANIC & LATINX IN THE U.S.

The Identity Crisis of Hispanics Revealed

Fernanda provides a first person account of identity--addressing  stereotypes and assumptions, and inviting the audience to dig deeper  into the Latinx experience in the United States.  


Fernanda addresses the  role of Latinx people in shaping the culture, politics, and economy of  the USA.  Fernanda was born and raised in Chicago, IL by Mexican immigrant  parents, and grew up constantly surrounded by the large and diverse  Hispanic and Latino community. 


Fernanda proudly identifies as a part of  this community as a Latina, Hispanic, and Mexican American.  This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but  independently organized by a local community.
