On Thursday, Mexico celebrated its 211th year of independence from Spain. While the pandemic limited the parties and events typically seen throughout the community to celebrate the holiday, many people — especially children — made it clear the spirit of the holiday is alive and well through them.
Many children from school districts and even some adults went to school or work with traditional Mexican attire whether it was traditional dresses for young girls or traditional Mexican shirts and shoes for the boys. All of the parents of the school-aged children that went in traditional Mexican attire expressed how they did so in efforts to show the pride they have for their Mexican heritage.
“We don’t want for our kids to lose our traditions. Since they were born here, it’s up to us to continue to honor our heritage,” said Claudia Garcia, the mother of 7-year-old Katie Elizondo.
Garcia said even though children are still young and have much to learn about their heritage and ancestery, her child and others she has seen proudly wore their colors and expressed their love for Mexico even though some have yet to visit the country.
“My wife and I continue to dress my daughter Amaylia, because today is Mexican Independence Day and we want to keep our ancestors’ history and cultural heritage alive,” said Carlos Mar III, the father of Amaylia Mar.
The Mar family believes that by keeping the tradition alive it allows for their children to continue the tradition when they become older as well.
Kymberly Ramirez dressed two of her children for the holiday, 2-year-old Leopoldo Benavides II and 7-year-old Aryelle Fuentes. She also believes keeping the tradition alive is important for the future so they can understand their identities as they grow.
“As a family, we feel it’s important for our children to not only be educated but to celebrate all aspects of our culture,” Ramirez said.
According to Ramirez, she wants her son to be conscious of his roots and where he and his family come from.
“Mexico is more than what we see on TV,” Ramirez said. “I want my son to experience and grow to acknowledge the part of his ancestors. The Mexican culture is close to his family and me. I believe he should know about the history, traditions and background that connects with him and where he comes from."
Children are not the only ones keeping the tradition alive as many adults, including teachers, are also celebrating Mexican Independence Day by going to work with traditional Mexican clothing.
“I continue the tradition because it’s something that I don’t want for my son to miss out on,” local teacher Emilia Janeth Almanza said. “I think it’s very important to celebrate this important day since this is who we are.”
At UISD schools, many students also wore Mexican attire in celebration of the holiday.
“Students across the school district embraced their heritage wearing colorful attire in honor of Mexico’s Independence Day,” UISD Deputy Superintendent for Administration said. “‘El Grito de Independencia’ is the anniversary of Mexico’s declaration of independence from Spain. It is important that students remember their roots and embrace their culture. As educators, we thank parents and families that allowed their children to celebrate this tradition.”
"[Alex] is one of the best hackers in the world." - Michael proud boyfriend Guerin
The star power of Eva Longoria should never be underestimated. A proud Mexican-American the multihyphenate powerhouse has won the hearts of television viewers since her breakout role in ABC’s Desperate Housewives.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Longoria is all smiles when speaking about how her Mexican heritage. It inspires her perspective on life — from daily activities to the way she runs her businesses, which include several restaurants and a production company, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment.
“Being Mexican is who I am,” Longoria says. “For me, it exudes in everything that I do every day from how I style my hair, to putting on my lip liner, to putting on my hoops, to what I make for breakfast, how I have my café con leche. It seeps into every aspect of my life.”
A staunch activist for gender equality, she's also used her platform to shine a light on issues impacting Latino communities, specifically focusing on advocating for more Latino visibility on and off-screen — something she explains is vital in preserving the wellbeing of Hispanic communities.
“The problem is when you don't have a person of color within your community, if your neighbors aren't Latino, the only reference you have of us is the news. And that doesn't do a very good job of portraying who we are,” Longoria explains. “And so, representation in TV, in film, in music, in art, it matters because it educates the community about who we are.”
Her concern is warranted. According to UCLA’s 2021 Hollywood Diversity Report, Latinos accounted for only 5.7 percent of all film roles in 2020 — up slightly from 2019 when it was 4.6 percent. While the uptick is promising, she says it’s not enough.
She also stresses the importance of having Latinos behind the camera and in other positions of power. "That's why I became a producer and that's why I became a director. It was to make sure that our stories are told because it's important,” she says. “It educates people about who we are. It educates our community about who we are, and that is even more important. If I am a Latino watching, literally, the erasure of my culture, then I think, ‘Oh OK, I am not worthy. My stories don't matter.’ And that's way more dangerous. We need to make sure that we share our own community, our worth — and celebrate it.”
Despite her strong will to make it in business, Longoria admits she suffered from impostor syndrome when she started directing television. “I was terrified on set,” she explains. “I remember driving to the set with knots in my stomach going, ‘I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know why I said yes.’”
Longoria’s film directorial debut, Flamin’ Hot, is currently in post-production, adds to her 17 director credits, per IMDb, so she has clearly gotten the hang of it. “I learned that I was more than prepared," she says. "I learned that I had all the tools I needed. I was enough.”
Still, she warns other young Latino artists to be aware of the challenges the Hollywood industry might throw at them.
“Go into [the business] knowing there are systemic barriers,” she advises young Latinos. “There is a systemic culture that is taught not to let you in. Just know that you have to work twice as hard.”
Or, put more simply: “I did work my ass off and that is my advice: work your ass off.”
Longoria’s latest venture is one that has seldom been chartered by Latina celebrities: the tequila industry. This month, the actress and entrepreneur announced the launch of Casa del Sol, a Mexican-owned and operated tequila brand inspired by the legend of the Aztec goddess of agave, Mayahuel.
The star admits she had little knowledge about the process of making tequila before diving into the business. But that ended up being a good thing.
“I didn't know it's aged and I didn't know the tradition and the craftsmanship behind it. I didn't know it could have notes of vanilla," she admits.
Learning about the process was “eye-opening” for the star, who was quite studious early on as she began building the seeds of the brand. After all, the celebrity tequila market today is mostly dominated by white men, which makes her launch especially significant.
"I've been approached by many brands to be the face, but every time I was approached by a tequila brand, it felt like they wanted to be celebrity forward," she explains. "Casa Del Sol was the first time where it was female-led and tequila forward. They were all about the tequila, the craftsmanship and the traditions."
“With tequila, it has to be rooted in Mexican heritage. It just has to be," she adds, “I read so much once I got involved in Casa Del Sol about the soil and the overproduction of the agave plants, and how tequila is in so much demand that people are cutting them down sooner than they should be cut down. It takes about seven years for an agave plant to mature.”
She is making sure the brand is giving back to communities in Altos de Jalisco, the region where Casa Del Sol is produced, by developing programs that level the playing field for women.
“I love giving back in the process,” she explains. “It's important to build community initiatives for the people of Jalisco and the people who give us this high-quality tequila. For me, it’s making sure workers are guaranteed a fair living wage and taking care of the agave not only to assure the quality in our bottles, but to make sure that the growth technique is natural.”

Alex! I got you! I got you.
RNM SPOILERS ⚠️
anyone else appreciate the parallelism of the ledge scene and the scene with m*ria jumping off the crashdown roof and michael saving her maybe im reading too much but i feel like it was really symbolic in the way that with m*ria michael uses her powers to save her while with alex michael uses his physical self AND pwers so its kinda like that disconnect with maria vs the complete connection with alex
and ofc i loved the difference of reactions,m*ria literally YELLING at michael and saying horrible things(free him please yall) directly contrasting alex clinging to him like a life line while michael says good things (we’re not forgetting “ive always got you” for a while huh?)
it just makes it so while these two scenes parallel each other in theory but in reality you dont even realise it because of the completely different tone set and emotions you feel in each scene.
