Karla Bolanos Mejia wins an award for her essay on the book The Pregnancy Project: A Memoir by Gaby Rodriguez and Jenna Glatzer. This nonfiction book is an account of Gaby’s senior high school social experiment to see how she’d be treated when she faked a pregnancy. Karla found she had much in common with Gaby in terms of resisting stereotypical expectations of young Latino women and, in turn, demanding the right to determine her own future and her own definition of success.
