One part of photography is getting published, and I've been so grateful and blessed to have been published in many magazines over the years. While getting published in other magazines is amazing, it has always been a dream of mine to publish my own magazine.
Publishing my own magazine has always been a dream of mine. Ever since I watched 13 Going on 30, Ugly Betty, and Funny Face as a kid. I wanted to either create or be apart of a magazine, to be able to put faces like mine, and faces similar to the ones I was raised around, in a magazine... Indigenous (Hopi) and Latinx (Mexican) faces. I didn't see much of 'my self' in magazines growing up. I didn't see much of any of our faces in any art media, really. Aside from the stereotypical "sexy latina" and "bad/gangster/cartel latino(s)". I wanted to see my culture shown in a positive light. Not just in a positive light, but the positive and beautiful parts of my culture and many other Indigenous and Latinx cultures. Not just for myself but for other little girls - and kids - like my self. Despite this being such a passionate dream of mine over the years... I kept pushing that dream to side. Mostly out of fear of the though of failing. However at the beginning of this year, I decided to just go for it, because you can't fail at something if you haven't even tried. Right?! RIGHT! AND I DID IT, I PUBLISHED MY OWN MAGAZINE! *drum roll*
I am so pleased and excited to announce that I have published my first issue of my magazine!
