EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Eva Longoria on Growing Up Latina

Eva Longoria has always been an outspoken and proud Latina. She even went back to school a few years ago to get her MA in Chicano Studies and to brush up on her Spanish. We love that she is always so involved in political issues surrounding our community and that she is an outspoken advocate for countless organizations from MALDEF to the NCLR and the campaign to create a National Museum of the American Latino. Here's what she had to say about growing up Latina in Texas.

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.
