Great name, right? Yes, it’s a play on an old stereotype, but I chose it carefully because it reflects so much about Jewish women, Latin or not: our relationship to G-d as His daughters, and our colorful personas which can brighten this world by making it beautiful both spiritually and physically.
One final note on the name, because it has come up before. No, I’m not a trust fund baby. Everything I have built in my life has been with tremendous work, taking leaps of faith, trusting my intuition and asking myself “is this the best I can do?” I worked my way through college, went to get my MBA on a merit scholarship, and paid off all of my student loans as soon as possible. I’ve made plenty of mistakes and had failures along the way, but I’ve never let them get me down. I eat dark chocolate and I get up again. In true princess style!
