Exploring the Relationship Between Media Representations of Latina/os and the Self-Esteem of High-Achieving Latino College Students

Abstract:

Despite recent improvements, Latina/os in the mainstream media are still depicted as a homogeneous, pan-ethnic group, and their representations are dominated by images of criminals and immigrants seeking public assistance. How do stereotypes and the lack of images of professionals, who could serve as role models, affect the self-esteem of Latino students? What coping mechanisms do they use to succeed in predominantly white universities where non-Latina/o students are mostly exposed to Latina/os as stereotypical characters in the media and as Spanish-speaking blue-collar workers on campus? This paper discusses the findings of in-depth interviews with 12 first-generation, U.S.-born, high-achieving Latino college students at a predominantly white public university. The paper addresses the role media played in these students’ self-esteem and the coping mechanisms they used to protect their self-esteem, which varied based on their level of ethnic identification. The paper also proposes strategies that could help Latino adolescents develop high self-esteem.
