I enjoy reading your column and try to take your advice on how to be an empowered Latina. But it’s not working. I am 34 years old, am divorced, have no children, am good-looking, own my own home and have a great career as a police officer. The problem is el machismo. The men around here can’t handle my independencia. I...

I don’t seem to be able to satisfy my boyfriend sexually. I’ve tried everything, but it’s of no use. He wants me to talk dirty to him, but I’m kind of clueless in that department. What am I supposed to say? Ayúdame, please!

There are so many Latinos from different parts of Latin America coming into this country, but I feel like we are all so separated from each other. I hear people spew hate against other people who are just like them. We might come from different countries and have different backgrounds, but here, we’re all treated the same. Why can’t we...

But most of...

I’m currently making a lot of lifestyle changes: eating healthy, exercising, quitting smoking, attending college and developing a music career. I’m troubled, though, because many of the friends I’ve had for years are still drinking, smoking, eating junk food and lacking ambition. Worst of all, although I don’t relate to them anymore, I...

I’m being haunted by a question I never thought I would be. I’m a first-generation Latina born in the U.S.A. who identifies totally with our culture but who also feels very proud to be an American. I have never felt as torn as I do today as a result of what’s happening with the “immigration issue.” You see, I have strong negative...

I recently found out that my family does not really have any Hispanic blood coursing through its veins. They’re descendants of French people who stayed behind after the French Mexican war (1861–1867) and changed their names to Hispanic ones. Many of them settled in New Mexico, where my family comes from. Now when someone asks about my...

I have a big problem. I’m super-shy. My face turns red every time a stranger talks to me—even on the phone! This has become harder since my new job requires that I deal with the public. What can I do?

I hear you. I used to be shy myself. You may...
