I remember my first copy of Latina Magazine. It was 1996. I was working for a banking firm at the World Trade Center as a front desk receptionist. I did this while I worked on getting my teaching credentials and applying for grad school. It was lunchtime, so I headed over to one of the restaurants on the main floor. Tons of magazine stops everywhere. I will never forget. The word Latina caught my eye. The cover had a picture of Jennifer Lopez. The title Bronx Meets Hollywood. I was like "who is this woman". The rest is history.

Happy 15th anniversary, Latina Magazine!

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Fleishman-Hillard.
