As a Mexican-American Latina, my culture and traditions are deeply rooted and embedded in who I am and I am so proud of how much my heritage has to offer. In our culture, we value family, hard work, our studies, faith and our food. These examples are just a small part of my cultural background. My culture is filled with so much more and I am so grateful to be a part of it.
Being from Houston, I've learned a lot about diversity. Our city is so diverse in the most extraordinary way. Although all of our cultures are uniquely different, I love how we can represent our culture with pride and dignity and support one another while doing so.
My Mexican roots hold a special place in my heart that I will carry with me forever. One day when I have a family of my own, I will continue to pass down the traditions throughout the generations to come.
With family being such a huge part of my culture, I cherish them the most. My family is my biggest support system and consists of the most loving, caring and strongest people I know. My culture has taught me that through everything and anything, your family will always be there and be your biggest fans no matter what. I love that because it's absolutely true. All of my relatives mean the absolute world to me and I am so thankful for them.
I feel privileged to represent my culture in such a diverse group of beautiful individuals that make up the Houston Texans Cheerleaders. I am so thankful and honored to be a part of such an incredible organization. Go Texans!
