  4. L. (frijoliz) An unapologetic inmigrante de centro Mexico raised on the south-side of Chicago. Mis contribuciones to this blog speak on my personal struggles and will hopefully include: upholding la cultura del barrio; challenging the educational barriers faced by latinas primarily those limitations faced by undocumented women; and critiquing as well as dismantling machista attitudes that exist in nuestra comunidad. I enjoy street style elotes with extra chile and wearing my chanclas con ehsocks.
