Luz has been called many things, but “conventional” isn’t one of them. Though she’s lived in San Antonio for 17 years, Luz was born in Arizona, grew up in Sonora, Mexico and was raised in a highly conservative environment. She married at 23 and had three children, but soon after, found herself unwilling to conform to her husband’s traditional expectations. Six years ago, Luz divorced her husband and is proud of the fact that she’s rejected typical Mexican female norms. Now, in addition to raising her kids, Luz is a real estate agent and entrepreneur – owning and running a successful boxing gym.
