- How to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (with Frida Kahlo's eyebrows, dance music, and paella)!
Turn up the volume on your Menudo 8-track – because this weekend kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month! When I was 15, I had the honor of participating in an exchange program in Costa Rica, so Hispanic culture is close to my heart. That summer I learned to dance salsa better than your average white girl and had my first French kiss (which seemed to involve a startling amount of face-licking).
In honor of cultures rich with some of the best music, art, food, (and Cuban Zumba instructors), I thought I’d share some of my favorite Hispanic influences and ways to celebrate Hispanic heritage.
