“Looking back at this photo really has me reflecting on all the work I’ve had to do to get here, being a chicana directing powerful movies about and for my culture. From doing more than what was expected of me (acting), pushing back, being told no, being excluded from conversations because it wasn’t where I “belonged”, it hasn’t been an overnight success as y’all know. But here I am, despite all of that, doing what I love to do and you can too!! Whatever that is. Because if this Texicana from Corpus Christi can, you can too,” wrote Eva Longoria on her post.
