Sonia has got herself into a deep situation with the Latin Kings for exposing their information from being interviewed on live TV by Oprah. The Latin Kings were extremely mad for what she did and threaten her by shooting at her house. Sonia had came back Chicago to confront the Latin Kings bringing along a baby of her own. While confronting the man known as Tino they ended up starting a relationship with each other. Sonia has been caught up with the police and FBI plenty of times.

This was leading her from loosing her little girl and has choose to drop the gang life for her daughter. Sonia has now got her act together after all the abusive beating, dropping out of school, gang war, and drug addiction. She has gone back to finish school and now has mandatory job and is taking good care of her daughter and son. Sonia Sonia is skinny and has a thick body from her hips and down.
She is light skin and was known to be very pretty. She is person who has a heart for her love ones, but there is time when she can be cold hearted. She is really reckless and is known to be a street fighter and is easily convinced. Her main goal was to have a family who looked after her and graduated from high school properly. Sonia's main strength and weakness was her baby girl. We discover that Sonia never had any support or protection from anyone or anything in her family or community and it is from this space of vulnerability, rejection, depression, and desperation that Sonia chose to join the Latin Kings and become a Latin Queen.
We follow her as she quickly becomes the Queen of All Kings. As we learn more about Sonia, who while a Latin Queen went by the name Lady Q, we see her evolve into a drug abuser, drug dealer, homeless mother, domestic violence survivor, grandmother, and now author. I had the impression that there were aspects of her story that were forced, meaning she may not have been as comfortable or forthcoming as we are to believe from the introduction.

At the same time I recognize that these are difficult testimonios to share and that I may be projecting some of my own biases onto the narrative. This bothers me and I have yet to find the exact language that can help contextualize this perspective but I will try. Men writing our stories is nothing new.
Titles by Sonia Rodriguez
In fact it is so tired I knew before reading the book that I would have an issue with this aspect of the text. There is something so innately paternalistic about this that it is enraging. What level of input did she have in the creation of the actual text?
Was she a part of the creation or did she just get a final draft? I found this part of the book most troubling and condescending. He argues that the only way to get out of the life completely is to remove oneself from the community entirely. This means relocate to another state altogether. Why continue this under the guise of helping her?
Lady Q the Rise and Fall of a Latin Queen by Krystal Palacios on Prezi
How is this any different from the abuse and neglect she endured and survived as a child? There are ways to be firm and honest with people without belittling them and harm reductionists have been working to master such approaches for decades. What I know can result is a strong discussion with youth and those who have similar experiences to the ones presented in this text.
