Storytelling Through Video: How Latinas Are Sharing Culture Online

Living bi-cultural lives and sometimes navigating two languages, U.S. Latinos often feel the need to hold on to cultural traditions to preserve their heritage and pass it down to new generations. With social media allowing for easy sharing of stories, many Latinas have taken to blogging and video for storytelling. These digital Latinas are producing content online in English, Spanish, and sometimes both! Learn what type of stories these women are telling and how using video has helped them in sharing their culture with audiences worldwide.
