Bienvenidas, video stories from the outhouse to the penthouse ...always atrueLatina.
Born into a childhood of farmworking in The Valley of Hearts Delight to later becoming a lowrider member in East San Jose in the '70's. Then, a college graduate, television executive, show executive producer, small-business owner, talent agent, voiceover actor and finally an expat in CDMX! What a journey, lots to share...always atrueLatina. Frances
With a deep passion for the innovative and diverse California Bay Area community and staying true to my roots, I founded atrueLatina.com, an online experience in 2011. The site included a team of writers from several generations for the online magazine, cover art, videos, scholarships, conferences and more! We provided a voice on issues unique to us and shared original stories about our culture and traditions that women can identify with. Our information linked many generations of millennials, gen x-ers, boomers and traditionals of Latinas living in the US and abroad. Muchas gracias.
Your support was invaluable!
Traditions... unique, one of a kind chalina (one-color rebozo), rust color, handmade in Santa Maria del Rio,

Back in the 70's, I became a First Impressions car club member in San Jo: low, slow and scraping! Cruising in my '71 Riviera, I was one of three Women in the club. My ride had hydraulics in the back and I would Flip the switch and make it hop. The original pristine Jacket on the left was my official gear for showing up at picnics, parks or going on a run to Fresno with my friend and now comadre, Flaca. FIRME.
