Netflix's 'Roma' has launched the career of Yalitza Aparicio, a Mexican woman of indigenous origins, who had just graduated as a teacher but wasn’t yet working.
Since the release of the film, the Mexican actress has been in the spotlight and is now gracing the cover of Vogue México.
Vogue México went to Instagram to share the stunning rising actress, captioning the photo:
"La vida de esta oaxaqueña pasó de la discreción de su hogar en Tlaxiaco a las pantallas del cine y la televisión, conquistando los aplausos y los corazones del mundo."
"The life of this Oaxacan woman went from the discretion of her home in Tlaxiaco to the cinema and television screens, conquering the applause and the hearts of the world."

In the interview with Vogue México, Aparicio opens up about representing 'real women.'
"My skin, very Mexican, very Oaxaqueñan and very human from the color of my land and the diversity of its colors.
She continues to speak about getting used to life in front of the cameras and adjusting to not being around her family, whom she is really close to.
"Other faces of Mexico are now being recognized. Certain stereotypes are being broke: that only people with a certain profile can be actresses or be on the cover of magazines."

What an inspiration for all women. Keep slaying, Yalitza and congratulations on all the success.
