16 Clear Signs You're a Young Latina Millennial
We bet we could guess your age solely by asking if you listened to Aventura or watched Rebelde every day after school. If your answer is yes to either of those, then you're a "young millennial" born in the '90s or later (no offense, but if you were born before, you're considered an "old millennial"). We remember doing all these things, too — while we weren't drooling over Mario Lopez, anxiously waiting for Jennifer Lopez to hit the red carpet, or dancing to "Whine Up." We won't continue, we'll just let you read ahead to find out other signs that you're a young Latina millennial.
