In my family my mom is Mexican and my dad’s Italian, so I really wish that both my grandparents on my mom’s side were still alive to kind of see me doing this. […] I feel the Latinas and Latinos are kind of taking over. It doesn’t really matter what ethnicity you are, but I love that I’m bringing light to not only my Mexican side but also my Italian side.
