Mexican models play an integral part in fashion's landscape and serve as invaluable assets to brands targeting Latino millennials.

Successful modeling in the cutthroat fashion industry is no simple task, especially for Mexican models who face unique obstacles in their careers. Although beautiful and charismatic, Mexican models face many difficulties that must be navigated successfully in order to be successful.

1. Social Inequality and Gender Gaps

Social inequality and gender gaps can have a dramatic effect on Mexican models' struggles in the United States. Class inequality may be the most visible form, but other means exist through which people are divided into various groups without accessing necessary resources in order to reach their full potential.

Inequality can lead to economic disadvantage, racial discrimination and other forms of social and political oppression - impacting mental health as well as overall quality of life for its victims.

Women with low educational attainment and incomes tend to be incarcerated or imprisoned more frequently than their counterparts with higher levels of education and incomes, and Latinas tend to work lower-paying occupations compared to other racial/ethnic groups.

Latinas experience higher unemployment rates than other racial or ethnic groups and tend to switch jobs more frequently; consequently, they are more likely to experience poverty and have less financial security to live their best lives.

Additionally, recent research demonstrates that wage disparity between Latinas and non-Hispanic whites remains real and constant over time; for example in 2016, prime-age Hispanic women earned only 57% of what white counterparts made that same year.

Not surprisingly, wage disparity can be observed at all educational levels and in both men's and women's work settings. One notable instance is in the United States where female counterparts make less money despite having equal levels of education.

2. Education

Education is one of the major concerns among Mexican Americans. A lack of access to higher education, indigeneity, and gender inequality all pose serious threats; yet Mexico continues to make strides toward improving its educational system.

Mexico students typically attend public schools that are free of charge; however, some private schools and universities now also provide education in Mexico.

At a time when government has struggled to meet rising demand for higher education, private institutions are helping make up the difference by increasing spending significantly below the 1% GDP target.

An increasing share of this deficit has been caused by China's robust economy and its surge in graduate unemployment, which in turn led to more graduates looking for work and the emergence of budget universities offering no-frills undergraduate and master's degrees at a fraction of traditional university costs.

Mexico's Constitution guarantees academic freedom without government interference; thus, allowing private academic programs to obtain government accreditation without it being compulsory.

To enhance the quality of Mexican education, the government has implemented various reforms and initiatives. One such reform, known as Comprehensive Reform of Basic Education, seeks to make curriculum more coherent while emphasizing student achievement.

Additionally, the federal government has funded many targeted educational programmes designed to address educational inequities and provide education opportunities to underserved populations such as indigenous peoples.

3. Health

Health is of primary importance to Mexican immigrants living in the US. While they tend to be generally healthy, accessing health care may be restricted due to factors like language barriers, cultural expectations of care and legal restrictions or differences within local communities.

Many Mexican women prefer herbal and home remedies over professional treatment for common ailments like headaches, stomachaches or backaches. Furthermore, they tend to avoid pharmaceuticals that may prove costly or cause adverse side effects that aren't desirable.

Women working in textile industries receive less benefits than their counterparts in other sectors and are more likely to be uninsured or underinsured, which puts them at greater risk of work-related injuries and diseases.

Ventanillas de Salud ("Health Windows") program was initiated by the Mexican government to address this problem in 2003 and improve access to primary and preventive health services. Through VDS, information regarding disease prevention and treatment as well as screenings/referrals to primary care providers as well as eligibility aids for public insurance plans were made readily available.

These efforts have proven successful in decreasing the overall number of uninsured Mexican immigrants living in the US and increasing access to care; however, additional work needs to be done to ensure that this program continues providing high-quality services that remain cost effective for both immigrants and domestic Americans alike.

To address this issue, the Consulate General of Mexico in the United States collaborated with CSFMEU to introduce the Juntos por la Salud mobile health and wellness initiative (JPLS). JPLS seeks to strengthen VDS strategy by offering mobile units independent from consulates which operate autonomously within communities.

4. Work
