How Latina Friendships Turn Into Sisterhoods

All of them somehow managed to work, take care of their families, and send something back to family members who hadn’t immigrated. Some of them were even entrepreneurs, starting businesses at home, selling Avon products or empanadas. I looked up to these women. I called them tías or titis, and they showered me with affection.
