Leave it to Disney to crank up the notch on the feels with the newest addition to their royal family, Elena of Avalor. Not only is Princess Elena the very first Latina Disney Princess, but she comes from a strong family who supports her and inspires her to become a natural leader. My mother and father were not college graduates and worked incredibly hard to provide for my brother and me. They taught us values and the meaning of family, and especially taught us how to fight for what we believed in. Today, I am a strong mother, wife, teacher, and woman because of my parents!
Last Friday we celebrated the premier of Elena of Avalor on Disney Junior. While we are not a Latin family, it is so important for me to raise my children in a household that cherishes and embraces all cultures. I love that Disney has brought Elena into our home, as her family reminds me of my own growing up.
