Learning about how other people consume telenovelas is interesting. It was interesting to hear Ruxi speak of her personal experiences with telenovelas. She's a very dutiful telenovela viewer who goes to great extent to get access to her beloved telenovelas. The way people consumed telenovelas was so interesting to me that I actually interviewed three of my Hispanic friends and asked them about their perosnal experiences/perspectives about telenovelas. These 3 Hispanic female college students who have varying telenovela viewing habits and who have came to the States at different stages in their life. I believe there is some sort of correlation between the amount of time they spent in the States to their telenovela viewing habits. One girl who was born and raised here never watches telenovelas. The other girl who grew up in South America watches telenovelas dutifully when she was there and still watches them to this day. Another girl who has spent half of her life in South America and the other half of her life in the States watches them on occassion. This is what I am writing about for my final paper. It's interesting stuff!
