Historic Mexico issue of Latina magazine (editor)

In 2009, Mexico’s reputation had suffered greatly in the mainstream news media. With the constant reports of drug wars, violence and H1N1, you’d think it was the worst place on Earth. So I suggested we devote an entire issue to the culture, beauty and people of Mexico, showcasing its many positive contributions. The staff agreed; it was a no-brainer. It was the first time in Latina‘s history that we devoted an entire issue to a specific country/culture, and the first time we didn’t feature a celebrity on the cover. The response was incredibly positive, from the Mexican and Mexican American community, and beyond. Read more about this historic issue here.
