Season of Giving

Posted by Latinitas Intern on December 17, 2014 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

During this season of giving, Latinitas club members wrote about how they spread the spirit of giving and help their community.

I care about the environment! I help the community by collecting cans. I recycle it and earn lots of money. If I earn just enough money I give it to people in need. At my old school, I entered a program and I would pick up trash and make things out of it. One time, I…

On the Road

Posted by Elena Barrera-Waters on December 18, 2014 at 11:15pm 1 Comment

I've never been on a road trip in my life. It's always seemed a little scary to me, considering I can barely keep calm and still in a car ride of just two or three hours. 

But, this year, when approaching the holidays, I was invited to go on a small road trip, just 12 or so hours, to a different state to go skiing, yet another thing I've never done in my life.



And while I've never tried either of things and am, admittedly, a bit afraid of both, I'm excited more than anything…

Transfer International

Posted by Kenia Guerrero on December 21, 2014 at 11:21am 2 Comments

I think the title sums it all up.

I was born in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico a border city right next to El Paso, Texas so it was easy to decide where to go to college, I just apply to UTEP and I've been there for a year a half but for a while now I've thinking on transferring and of course the idea sounds great, being in a bigger city, in a college I like better, living by myself or with friends but now that I've been accepted I'm thinking of how scary it actually is because I…
