Nonotuck Resource Associates recently celebrated Hispanic/LatinX Heritage Month with a discussion of ‘My identity is a superpower -- not an obstacle,’ a TED Talk by America Ferrera. Ferrera is an award-winning actress who has acted in sitcoms such as Ugly Betty and Superstore, in addition to her work as a political activist. She speaks at length about how her identity as a Hispanic woman—she is the daughter of Honduran immigrants—hindered her pursuit of an acting career, and how she ultimately embraced her identity as a strength.
