I was born with the idea of fairytales at an early age as I grew up watching the Disney Princess franchise and princesses from Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Rapunzel. Growing up I didn’t identify myself with any of these princesses even though they have been the most popular franchises of the whole of Disney-owned media. However, when I saw for the first time the franchises of Jasmine and Pocahontas I realized any dream could be possible for a mixed girl like me who has Italian, Spanish, American Indian, and some Black and Jewish in my heritage. When you are a mixed girl like me things can be a little weird when you are part of a society that separates races into different boxes that say White, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Asian, or Black. When I encounter one of those boxes I always say other or I mark my own box that says “mixed.”
“Meghan Markle” represents for me the beginning of a change in our society, I finally can see a Jasmine or Pocahontas dream becoming real and I can say “It is about time” to see a modern-day princess.
I’m so proud of being a mixed girl like “Meghan Markle” and I love dressing up in pretty dresses like a princess. Last week I talked to my dad over the phone and he told me Yenis, you look just like “Meghan Markle” and I laughed out loud. I never thought about that until this week when I was trying my pretty dresses from Standards & Practices. and I realized I was just a mixed girl with tons of insecurities just like Meghan Markle had growing up.
