Dear Older Me!

Posted by Ana-Paola Perez on July 19, 2016 at 11:58am 0 Comments

We asked the girls to write a letter to their older selves so they'd be able to open them when they become adults or teenagers. This is what some of them wrote. "Dear Celeste, I really like the

Why Females Athletes Are Capable of Surpassing the Guys

Posted by Kirsty Brewster on July 19, 2016 at 4:27pm 0 Comments

Today I get to watch my favorite TV show, American Ninja Warrior (ANW). I love this show. The competitors are like real-life super heroes. Every time I watch, I am in awe of what the human body is capable of. 

I am especially in awe of what the female competitors are capable of.

ANW is a unique show in which men and women compete against each other, but from a young age, we (girls) learn that boys are naturally stronger. We start to believe that we can’t possibly compete…


Confronting the world at my own

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on July 6, 2016 at 2:14pm 0 Comments

Hello girls! It's been a while since I don't get in touch with you. This is partly because of what happened at me at the bridge one Monday I was heading to Latinitas office. 

Let me explain how afraid and frustrated I was that day starting from the moment I walked out of home. As every normal Monday, I had to go to my internship at Latinitas office. I had to bathe, get on some clothes, have breakfast, brush my teeth and prepare my stuff for the day, which includes my documents for… Continue

Why Frida Kahlo is so important

Posted by Olivia Soledad on July 15, 2016 at 5:28pm 0 Comments

Frida Kahlo is an important and prominent figure that broke numerous barriers in reaching her level of success. Kahlo was born in Coyoacan, Mexico in 1907. She contracted polio from a young age and later suffered serious injuries following a bus crash when she was 18 years old. She suffered a great deal of pain but despite these events, Kahlo continued to paint and engage in her passion. She mostly painted self-portraits because she often spent time by herself since she was often left…

Latinitas Give Advice: How Can I get Through Bullying?

Posted by Latinitas Intern on July 1, 2016 at 10:25am 0 Comments

A letter is written to Latinitas anonymously and different Latinitas give their point of view and personal advice.


How can I get through bullying?

Bullying is tough. Adults and teachers and talk shows advise you to ignore the problem, but I know that's much much easier said than done. The good thing about bullying, is that it's based completely on falsehood. Anything that someone says to you that makes you feel…


Being Mindful

Posted by Cande Duran on July 7, 2016 at 2:16pm 0 Comments

     My cousin, an eight-year-old boy, was becoming increasingly frustrated by what he felt to be an unwise control of the car stereo. His desire to change the station from his mother's 80's alternative grew into the brink of an all-out tantrum. "Hey," she checks him, "remember what you learned in your mindfulness class." Mindfulness class, I think from the passenger seat, I've done one of those. Practicing mindfulness is what helped lift me out of my freshman year depression.



Descabellado pesar de una mexicana

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on July 7, 2016 at 2:32pm 0 Comments

Hello girls, this is one of the poems I wrote in times of despair. Every time I read about deportations, immigration experiences, and/or abuses on behalf of immigration officers, professors, or any other authority in the US towards immigrants, I just feel attacked.

I wrote how I feel and what I think of following the "American dream." I wrote this because for me, every experience I hear and…


Why You Should Rock Climb

Posted by Kirsty Brewster on July 5, 2016 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Friday was my first time in two months that I was able to climb after my hip injury. Normally I’d have to wait until I got back to Austin, but a rock climbing gym just opened in El Paso. It’s called the Cave Climbing Gym and I recommend checking it out if you’re in the area. So, in celebration of my return to climbing, I present a list of reasons on why you should rock climb.

  1. You’ll get a full-body workout. While climbing never quite feels like a workout, it works out…

Sometimes it can be hard

   As a young adult, school, work and social life can get into a knot, but sometimes that isn't the problem. Although I have social media it is hard to express your feelings without people worrying about you. I enjoy this one because people can read it, worry about you but it's not a big rock that hits you in the face.   As of now, I am on my own, in another city and because I am a quiet person, it is hard to find that someone who will listen to me without having to set a certain schedule. No…See More
