Latinitas Speak Out Against Media

Posted by Latinitas Intern on January 26, 2015 at 11:55am 1 Comment

Dear Magazine Editor;

I think you should stop because people may not feel good about themselves. They may think they are not pretty enough to be without makeup or photoshop. They may be sad to see themselves look different from what they naturally look like. We honestly believe that they should stop photoshop because they should be able to be themselves. Honestly if girls are going to be photoshoped I think boys should be too. ~Celeste and Desiree

Combating the Cycle of Cyberbullying- Kristina Kenney

Posted by Latinitas Intern on January 26, 2015 at 11:53am 0 Comments

Many times a child being bullied is like a duck floating along a pond as predators swim below. They struggle to appear calm and unruffled on the surface, but below where no one can see they are paddling like mad, consumed with fear.

 

Bullying is not as rare an occurrence in the contemporary world as it was 20 or 30 years ago. The growing diversity among schoolchildren today as well as the emergence of new digital social venues are two large examples of why this is true. The…

Be YOUnique

   Every girl is made differently! Nobody is perfect, embrace your flaws, they are what makes you beautiful. Every girl has bad days where we don't feel too good about ourselves but the important thing to remember is who we are and to stay true to ourselves. You are beautiful. You are smart. Avoid the negativity and rise above it. A beautiful personality is more attractive than anything you can buy at the store! - Kristin

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…
