America explains, “It wasn’t just about her being Latina, it was her being the epitome of an American girl.”Even though America identifies with the American culture, she doesn’t forget about her Latina roots. America tells AH, “To play a girl who happened to be Latina but really embodied an American life was really refreshing for me.” Click below to check out the full interview!

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
