law woman learn pursue

Founder of Latina, the first bilingual magazine for Hispanic women, Christy Haubegger had noted the visible lack of Hispanic role models in the media even as a child. As an adult she was determined to change this. Rather than pursue a career in law, Haubegger decided to pursue her dream of creating a women's magazine that dealt with health, beauty, political, and lifestyle issues from a Hispanic woman's perspective.

Christy Haubegger was born on August 15, 1968 in Houston, Texas to a Mexican-American woman, and then adopted by an Anglo couple, David and Ann Haubegger. Haubegger was raised in Bellaire, a middle-class suburb of Houston. Although her parents did not speak Spanish, they strongly encouraged her to learn the language and to explore Mexican culture, and Haubegger was enrolled in a bilingual preschool, continuing to learn Spanish in primary and secondary schools.

She graduated from St. John's High School in 1986 and then went to college at the University of Texas at Austin. After she received her bachelor of arts degree in philosophy in 1989, Haubegger attended Stanford Law School where she was class president and also served as the senior editor of the Stanford Law Review. Haubegger graduated with a juris doctor degree in 1992.
