Latinxs Show Their Pride And Resilience With Spectacular Grad Caps

"JUNTOS WE RISE."

Latinx graduates are giving us a major case of the feels for a second year in a row. 

As the class of 2017 celebrates the end of a chapter, dozens of Latino students have used Instagram to give a shoutout to their hard work, heritage, parents and persistence via some incredibly crafty and inspiring graduation caps. 

The #LatinxGradCaps hashtag was started last year by Latina Rebels founder Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodriguez as a way to celebrate what it means “to be young, brown and woke.”

“THIS is our future,” she told HuffPost last May. “They are the ones who will pave the way.” 

Now it seems the 30-year-old Nicaraguan’s idea could become an annual tradition. Check out 30 spectacular Latinx grad caps from the class of 2017:
