Leona Vicario (1789-1842)

Art by Tiny Tarakeet (tumblr)

A wealthy and connected young woman, Leona served as an organizer in Mexico’s independence movement.  She collected intelligence, conveyed messages, and provided financial support to the rebels.  Jailed twice by the royalists, Leona refused to give up the cause.  She and her husband Andrés Quintana Roo spent years on the run and Leona gave birth to their first child in a cave.

Eventually, the rebels succeeded in creating an independent Mexico.  Lenora and Andrés became leading figures of the new country.

Leona’s profile appears on a version of the $5 Mexican coin with the words “Bicentario de la Independencia” (“Bicentennial Anniversary of Independence”).

Meet this adorable girl during my Hall H camp out adventures. She came all the way from Beijing just to meet Lee Pace. She makes beautiful art, and Lee Peace was so SO excited to meet her, he even took a bunch of pictures of her art, and he mentioned her on a tv interview wich is super adorable.

Me and my friends gave her some Mexican coins for luck, and she was kind of enough to make a picture for us ( IM SO JELOUS BECAUSE I DIDNT GET TO KEEP SAID ORIGINAL ARTWORK)

She was too cute to be true, I only wish I had asked her tumblr or something.

ANYWAY IF ITS IS YOU…LET ME KNOW BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO AWESOME!…

I SHOULD PROBABLY MENTION THAT IF YOU TAKE MY PICTURES AND POST THEM AS YOURS…ILL FIND YOU AND CUT YOUR BALLS… 

Thank You :)
