Back to school in August..

Posted by Fabiola Gonzalez on July 20, 2015 at 10:02pm 0 Comments

So who else is ready to go back to school in August? I have taken the semester off and I have to say I have missed the late night study sessions and the cramming in homework the night before its due. Although that is not something I recommend, especially since I'm in college. I want to hear about everyone's thoughts and feelings on the upcoming school year. Will you be headed to high school, college, or if your taking some time off. I know here in Florida I will be going through an epic…

Hey hey hey!!! I know it's been a while since my last blog post!! I have been really busy with cheerleading and also we have our annual family fiesta coming up this Saturday so my family has been preparing for that all week!!

So today, since it's nearing the end of the month and therefore getting us closer to going back to school, I've decided to prepare a Do and Don't list. This one we can call Do's and Don'ts for the Rest of Summer! I hope you enjoy!

Hi Latinitas!

My name is Kayla, but sometimes I go by Angela. I am a high school senior in Florida and I was generously assigned by Jasmine to be one of Latinitas new contributing writers and multimedia producers. Pretty cool!

The Fiesta!!

Posted by Dallas Gomez on July 27, 2015 at 9:20am 0 Comments

When my grandma first got sick, she was sad because she wasn't able to go to Puerto Vallarta. She was sad because she couldn't go to the fiestas there so my grandpa said he would throw her her own fiesta and that's how it all started.

When my grandma passed away, it hit us all really hard. It's been 6 years now, but it's like we were just getting the call yesterday. We all miss her a ton but we know that she wouldn't want us to be sad, she'd want us to be happy and having fun, so that's… Continue

Donald Trump

Posted by Zaira Lujan on July 20, 2015 at 1:07am 0 Comments

Since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president in mid-June, his remarks about Latinos and others have only become worse. As a reminder, in his first speech he made remarks such as:

“When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime, they’re rapists, and some I…


Journalism in July experience

I want to tell you guys about the experience I had in this camp. I was there as a counselor and to see all these students that register to learn more about journalism was so great. The camp is basically for high school students pursuing their careers in journalism and the cam in on the month of July just one week. They have the opportunity to stay on the campus dorms, which are amazing, I had never been there and I just got very excited. They also went to the…


Media's Beauty Standards

Posted by Zaira Lujan on July 18, 2015 at 3:13pm 0 Comments

No matter what we are doing, where we are, or the time of day, we are surrounded by the media’s messages. You could be checking out groceries at the local supermarket when you see the blonde, blue eyed woman on the cover of a magazine or in the car when you hear about the latest weight loss product. The tools that the media utilizes to send out its message about beauty standards can vary from social media to advertisements on a billboard. What you see and hear around you has been…


Dear magazine editor...

Posted by Ariadne Venegas on July 15, 2015 at 10:10am 0 Comments

Dear editor,

     I don't think it's right to change models by photoshopping them or adding so much makeup. The reason behind this is because young girls will stress trying to look like that although they do not know that it's false. This is not fair to people reading and looking at the magazine because they may feel self conscious about the way they look. This is also disappointing for the model…

Senior Year, Stressed & Sadness.

Hi loves, I hope everyone had (or will have) a great first week of school. I'm supposed to be a senior this year, but I'm so far behind I don't know what to consider myself. It's really difficult as a homeschooler to know if you are leveled with your peers. I honestly wish I was attending a real school. I regret not having the traditional high school experience, you know - homecoming, prom, graduation, etc.I succeeded academically from K - 7th grade. I was very advanced in reading and writing.…See More

For the College First-year...

For the College First-year...For those of us that are students, the new semester is fast approaching (although some have already started). I am a junior at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, and although my school is far from my home in El Paso, Texas, after three months, I am just so excited go back and see all my friends again, decorate my dorm room, and get back into the swing of things. I wasn’t always this hyped about going away to school though. When I start college two years ago, my…See More

Target Rebranding their image to Include Genderless boy/girl Set up

Target is moving in a different direction in featuring their toys for children. In a press release on their website, beginning on the 7th of August they state that their toys will no longer limit to one gender and instead advertised as "kids" as a way for customers better roam through the store.Target writes, "reference to gender, including the use of pink, blue, yellow or green paper on the back walls of our shelves,"as a better method to stop gender boundaries,  but will this mean an easier…See More

Smile Because It Looks Good on You!

Hey everyone! So today I decided to do sort of an inspirational post. I write some pretty deep stuff on my other blog and I always get a ton of great feedback so I thought I'd try it on here and see if I got the same responce!We all know how it feels when you don't feel like you're good enough. When it seems like there are so many other better girls out there than you and there's nothing you can do about it. Speaking from experience, yeah it sucks. It sucks when it seems like some other girl…See More
