About Ruby

 

gublife-rubyRuby is a wife and mother to 2 little ones. She is the Blogger at growingupblackxican.com where she blogs about raising her kids to be proud of their 2 cultures- Black and Mexican. Her family from the West Coast to the East Coast to transition from being a military family to a civilian family. She is passionate about family, education and all things crafty.

Ruby started GUB in December of 2009 when she found it hard to relate to other families including her own. She struggled to find answers on different topics from relationships,  parenting in a bi-cultural family, and even balancing two cultures in one family. It was also challenging to find products her kids could relate to. As the Founder of GUB she strives to bring awareness to the bi-cultural community in specific “BLACKXICANS”(Black / Mexican)

As her kids got older she realized the need of sharing more than just culture and traditions but really the every day life of being a mixed family. In 2014 GUB was officially GUBlife and Marcus, also known as dad and hubs joined as co-founder. Since the growth there have been new topics added to every day coverage as well video.
