On April 22nd, the Mr. and Miss Hispanic OU pageant was held! Two of my friends were competing, so I went to watch them perform their acts. For their cultural presentation, my friend Chris did an impersonation and homage to one of his favorite Mexican actors, and my friend Jema performed a monologue about Latina feminism as Frida Kahlo. For the talent portion, Chris performed an extremely impactful spoken word piece about the American dream, while Jema taught the audience some salsa dancing. All of the acts presented were very entertaining and taught me much more Hispanic culture in new and unique ways. At the end of the pageant, the awards were given out, and both of my friends won! Overall, a very exciting night full of new aspects of Hispanic culture that I had not experienced before.
