How I handle my stress

Posted by Selina Bonilla on October 13, 2014 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

I never use to get so stressed out until I came to college. The balancing act of school and a social life is possibly one of the most difficult things to do. When things start piling up on me, from multiple tests and papers due all in the same week, my reflex is to hide under my blanket until it's all over. Not the best way to handle stressful situations, so I've learned to do other things instead.

When I am studying during tests and I get overwhelmed and feel like I can't do it, I…


Your Invitation to the Sisterhood

“Women’s progress is human progress.” –Hillary Clinton

Trending this past month was the word “feminism” and what it means to be “feminist.” We were brought to tears when Emma Watson moved us with her #HeForShe campaign speech at the UN. Clapped out loud when Lena Dunham called out to women to join together instead of being pitted against each other. What is the use of the word “feminism” if we aren’t all standing together for it? Instead we are debating on…


My Education is Worth It

Posted by Selina Bonilla on October 6, 2014 at 1:43pm 0 Comments

“When you are in college, we won’t be there to make you do your work. As a matter of fact, when you are in college, odds are you will not have a professor that will allow you to make up your work or even turn it in late. It is your responsibility, no one else’s, and you need to start getting into that mindset already!”

I have heard that speech uttered countless times from numerous high school teachers’ lips as they preached to our juvenile minds about the expectations that await us at…

 According to the U.S. Department of Labor, by the time girls in middle school now attend college, there will be one million more computer science jobs than computer scientists to fill them. When we look at the number of girls and women pursuing that career path, things look bleak, women of color, worse. Less than…

The Latina Rosa Parks - Carmelita Torres

Posted by Alicia on October 2, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Have you heard of Carmelita Torres? She was a part of the Bath Riots of 1917. She has been compared to Rosa Parks because she took a stand against discrimination and inhumanity. In the early 1900's, it was common practice for U.S. health officials to force Mexicans crossing the bridge into the U.S. to bathe, strip naked in front of an inspector and undergo a lice treatment. These toxic and harmful chemicals were used to kill lice and prevent typhus. A 17-year-old Mexican maid crossed the…


The Latina Identity

Posted by Cynthia Amaya on September 27, 2014 at 8:48pm 0 Comments

Being a Latina means being resilient. It means working hard and not letting bumps in the road, no matter how big or small, stop us from reaching our goals. It means putting our utmost effort to everything we do because people are expecting us to fail and we're going to prove them wrong. It means working twice as hard to make ourselves, our parents, and our families proud. It means ignoring stereotypes that claim we are lazy and being the hard workers that generations of Latinos have proven…

Two Different Cultures

While Mexicans and Puerto Ricans have many similarities, they also have many differences. I will be talking about those differences because I come from both Mexican and Puerto Rican backgrounds. Mexico and Puerto Rico are both very beautiful countries but their cultures are very different. Such as: the type of music they listen to, the food they eat, and how they talk.Mexicans tend to listen to a type of music that they call "corridos". While many Puerto Ricans listen like to listen to…See More
