The interview excerpts featured here highlight some of the personal and professional challenges faced by some of the country's most successful Latinos while growing up and building their careers. The notable public figures discuss their unique ethnic heritage, and existing stereotypes about it on The Latino List: Vol. 2. Some also share how these struggles sometimes led them to negotiate their distinct cultural traits to "fit in" to the mainstream, and the point at which they opted to accept and celebrate who they are.

A few might be surprised by some of the folks on this list, thanks to their looks and/or the media's failure to classify them as members of the Latino community. But regardless of how they are viewed publicly, each of the people featured candidly reveal the important role their ethnicity plays in their lives. Overall, they send positive and empowering messages about being true to who you are, and working hard to achieve your goals regardless of how others may see you.
