OFFICIAL ENDORSEMENT LETTER
Girl In Progress captures real life situations and struggles of second generation Hispanics in America. Young single mothers attempt to raise their children with an affinity for school and climbing the socialH economic ladder when they lack di scipline in their own lives. Work consumes part if not the majority of their day, followed by weekend nights of partying. This narrative captures the torn soul of a young single mother (Altagracia) who wants the best for her child but still tries to live their own life.
Furthermore, the story embodies the archetypal life of a child subjected to trials and tribulations inherited from single parenting. Ansiedad encapsulates the inner longing for stability and identity her mother is incapable of providing. Eventually, she reaches her tipping point and decides to break free from the prison by prematurely starting a life on her own, like so many youth today. Unfortunately as we all know the same struggles await Ansiedad at the other end of her fantasy.
Nevertheless, the end of the movie brings the life situations into balance. Altagracia and Ansiedad step into a life altering revelation concerning their mistakes. Ansiedad keeps her purity, while Altagracia finds forgiveness and repentance from her daughter. G irl in Progress expresses the error of Hispanic single mothers and daughters (children) and concludes with the solution. The message is bound to impact thousands of lives and bring a life altering revelation, which will transform the homes of Hispanic families across the nation.
Accordingly, the NHCLC, America's largest Hispanic Christian Organization, is proud to lend our support and endorsement, without reservation.
