From the outhouse to the penthouse! Experiences shared from the US to Mexico and around the world...always atrueLatina.
From farmworker in The Valley of Hearts Delight to becoming a lowrider member in East San Jose, then a college graduate, television executive, small-business owner 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!

Back in the 70's, I became a First Impressions car member. 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 right was my official gear for showing up at picnics, or going on a run to Fresno with my friend and now comadre, Flaca. Firme.

What is it that fuels each and every one of us in this world? For me, it is sharing being atrueLatina.
Back in 2011, I began writing and documenting my passions and sharing it with the world!
