Growing up, I loved Disney movies. For most of my early life, I wanted to be Wendy flying off with Peter Pan. “Peter!” I’d yell in a faux-British accent that would make even Madonna herself wince. A couple of years from then, when I was well into my princess phase, I transformed myself into Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She loved books! She had brown hair! She loved her dad! When it came time to pick your favorite princess among your friends, she was obviously my number one choice.

While some saw it as a positive move toward understanding Latinas as a diverse community, others saw it as creating a non-identifiable character and essentially "hiding" her Latin roots.
