The Sad Truth About Our Privacy

Posted by Juanita Rivera on July 20, 2014 at 10:30am 0 Comments

When was the last time you thoroughly read the "Terms and conditions"? No one? Anyone? Don't worry, I'm guilty, too. "They're so long" and "confusing," you're thinking. And that's intentional. Consequently by doing this we're giving our privacy away. The sad truth about privacy is that we have no privacy.

Do your research and soon you will find this out for yourself. The NSA has a surveillance program…

Dilemmas:To move or not to move

Posted by Claudia B. Mendoza on July 20, 2014 at 9:59pm 1 Comment

I am a sophomore at the University of Texas at El Paso.  As a 20 year old you would think I have more freedom than high school kids do but unfortunately that is not the case. My typical strict, Mexican mother watches my every move and gives me a curfew because I still live under her roof; her house...her rules.  I don't party and I don't do illegal things however she still tries her best to over protect me.  With a cut in my financial aid my hopes of moving out to the dorms have slowly…

Dear editors of magazines,

I think you should not Photoshop because we then the people that are reading the magazines we can't see what their real body/face looks like. I also think you should not Photoshop because some people that are in the magazines that think they look good and fancy but really they are not. I don't think you should Photoshop because some people like how they turned…

It's so sad to have prejudice alive today ... in my fellow Latinos. Sadly, there are countless of times I've heard Latinos say extremely offensive and ignorant comments like, "Oh she's…

From a Latinita with a big dream to making it a reality

Posted by Karen Lopez on July 10, 2014 at 9:04am 1 Comment

Two years ago, I made the decision to accept an internship in Boston for the summer (All in previous blog posts). That decision changed my life for the better. After graduating from UTEP I moved to Boston to work for the non-profit that had given me the internship the year before. I am not going to lie to any of you and say it was easy. I cried so much the week before leaving that I was emotionally exhausted by the time I got on the plane to make the eight-hour flight to what I would call my…

Be Spontaneous and Travel Abroad!

Posted by Sara Eunice Martinez on July 1, 2014 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Something that I have always dreamed of was to travel all over. I ended up traveling for the first time abroad last year and now I'm hooked!

Traveling abroad has changed me as a person because it made me feel more independent. Why?



Because first of all, trips are never free. I wanted…

Posted by Polet Espinoza on July 2, 2014 at 9:09am 0 Comments

About two weeks ago, I had the chance to attend to the Wise Latina Conference with Several guest speakers. These wonderful ladies are writers, producers, and directors. Nancy De Los Santos and Denisse Chavez.

Nancy De Los Santos was one of the producers in the famous film "Selena" she had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Lopez and the Quintanilla family. She was also the first Latina to serve in the board of directors. It amazes me that someone this important with many…

Student Discount

Posted by Ixchel Perez- Sajquim on June 28, 2014 at 11:11pm 0 Comments

The second semester of my freshman year in college I stumbled upon a something incredible. You know that student ID that they make you take at Freshman Orientation? The one where you either look amazing or like a child?  The one that you hide in your wallet and hope that no one ever asks to see it? Well, it’s time to start using it. Turns out you get crazy discounts at different stores and restaurants by flashing your student Id.  I use it all the time and its really quite helpful because…

MOVIE REVIEWS

The movie 13 wishes is an exciting movie and has beautiful moral. When Howleen finds a genie named Gigi, she has her at her command but when she didn’t know there was a bad side. Gigi’s shadow grows stronger every second she makes a selfish wish. Soon she made a horrible wish to be popular. Can the ghouls save her before Wisp takes over the monster world? ~Elizabeth

My favorite movie is Dear John. This is a romantic movie. Its about this brave…

Being a leader & a volunteer

 You would think volunteering might be a lot of work or boring but, honestly it's a lot of fun. Not only do you make small connection with the girls at camp, but you also meet the creative magical imagination of their brain. Also while the girls at camp are learning cool things, I am  learning fantastic things as well that I wish someone would have teach me or expose me at such a young age. I have learned how to edit a video, the stereotypes in society, how to make to feather hairclips and…See More

Second Generation Participation in Mariachi and Folklorico

This is a condensed version of a longer paper I wrote for a class, on a topic relevant to myself, a second generation immigrant who is part of a Folklorico dance group, and to many of us growing up in the US with parents born in Mexico.            Second generation immigrants in the United States are faced with the unique circumstance of being born in a nation different from that of their parents, while still holding very close ties to the nation their parents originate from. The connection…See More

Dear editors of magazines,I think that you should stop using photo shop and let your models inner beauty show and not just technology. Every human has there flaws, we  aren't perfect, no one is. When you don't use photo shop your models can find there confidence in them self instead of looking at them selves as a techno made person on magazines. You just have to except that no matter what that we are not perfect. Everyone has bags under there eyes and wrinkles, some people try to cover it up by…See More
