When I originally lettered this, I designed the ampersand to be translucent and set behind the text. Since then, I've made some adjustments so that it's now suitable for printing. 🎉
I think this new ampersand fits even better. 👌🏽

I take pride in being Latinx and in being a person of color, but I’d be lying if I said I’d always been a proud Latina.
Growing up, it was easy to feel like I wasn’t a ‘real Mexican.’ My skin is fairly light and I don’t have an accent. I still don’t speak Spanish fluently. (I’m working on it, although I still carry shame and embarrassment that’s difficult to shake.) I understand now that these characteristics do not make me less Mexican, even if for so long I thought they did. Today, I feel thankful and damn proud to be Latinx. We are an incredibly beautiful, strong, bright and colorful people. I am learning more every day to embrace and celebrate the entirety of who I am, where I’m from, and where it’ll lead me.
