Book Description

October 2, 2003
In this empowering guide, Dr. Ana Nogales encourages Latinas to move beyond their expected roles and become the women they wish to be by embracing the seven traits they inherit naturally from their Latino culture:
  • Espíritu Creativo (Creative Spirit)
  • The Aguantadora's (Survivor's) Passionate Determination
  • The Comadre's (Girlfriend's) Networking Ability
  • The Diplomática's (Diplomat's) Discretion
  • The Atrevida's (Risktaker's) Courage
  • The Malabarista's (Multitasker's) Balance
  • La Reina's (A Diva's) Confidence

Each chapter features an interactive element, including a quiz to determine how strong each attribute is in the reader's own personality, plus exercises to reinforce each trait. Filled with the personal stories of successful Latinas, including novelist Isabelle Allende, TV journalist Cristina Saralegui, Congresswomen Loretta and Linda Sánchez, Latina magazine founder Christy Haubegger, and entertainer Jaci Velásquez, Latina Power inspires readers to vigorously pursue their own dreams.

Review

Lupe Ontlveros actress Like my mother used to say,"Educate a man and you will educate his sons; educate a woman, and you will educate generations." This book shows Latinas that we have the power to do precisely that.

Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez (New York) Finally, a book about Latinas by Latinas for Latinas! Through the journeys of these amazing women, we learn what makes Latinas who they are today. Their lives and stories provide us with something all Latinas need -- pure inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Hold the Keys to Our Own Success January 28, 2004
Format:Paperback
My husband gave me this book for Christmas and I read it with excitement, hope and a renewed feeling of joy for my Latina heritage.
Dr. Nogales looks into the traits we ALREADY possess, our strengths passed down to us from our grandmothers and mothers and shows us how they are useful survival skills. She gives wonderful examples of real world women who've used these innate skills to reach success in all walks of life.
What I particularly admire about Dr. Nogales' writing is that it is not elitist- it draws upon women's wisdom and shows the timeless wisdom we've all had access to from our female role models.
Whether you're rich or poor, educated or not, this book can reach you. It touched me and I recommend it to other women, Latinas or not.
I will use this book as a reference for my clients.

4.0 out of 5 stars Latina Power!!! December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I was in college, trying to find my way. I guess in my many moves since I misplaced the book so when I got my Kindle I decided to look for it and was thrilled that I was able to find it. I am so happy tht I found and could refresh my meory on what I read back them. This is an awesome book for any college student just getting into the world but also for thos reinventing themselves or simple just wanting to get more out of themselves.
