Happy Birthday Juliana!

Happy birthday to one of our newest contributors, Juliana Britto Schwartz!

A recent graduate of UC-Santa Cruz, Juliana had been writing about feminism, immigration, and Latin@ issues at her blog Latina Feminista for while before joining Feministing. In her time here, she’s offered a Latina feminist perspective on a range of issues, from immigration reform to SNL to beauty pageants, highlighted badass activists like Damiana Cavanha, and offered personal reflections on navigating her position as a mixed Latina in a world that likes its binaries.

Some things you might not know about Juliana: She was in an all-female classical choir in high school, then switched and joined an acapella group for three years. She’s definitely our resident polyglot–in addition to English, she speaks French, Portuguese, and Spanish. Damn girl.

Give Juliana a birthday shout-out on Twitter!
