June 21st is National Selfie Day, so I thought I’d take this time to reflect on the role that the selfie has played in society in recent years.

Tips for those that are going away from home for college!
Leaving home for college is a challenging journey but it can be very exciting and fun! Throughout the year I developed ways to keep my life organized and as stable as I could.
Here is a list of tips that will hopefully make this hectic exciting ride just a bit easier:
Dear Orlando shooting victims,
I cried when I woke up to the news of your injuries and your deaths. It’s human to sympathize. The nation cried and prayed and still cries and prays even though they don’t know you and I don’t…Continue

The newspaper lying in the driveway still could not tell me that a woman in California had been given any justice after being sexually assaulted.

Last week, I attended the Stay Teen event at the Housing Authority of El Paso. It was great all the things that emerged from that day.
I was told to read one of the poems I submitted for a contest. Stay Teem contest had three categories: Video, Art, or Writing. With your entry, you had to tell the audience why do you think the youth should stay away of the adult's problems or why we (teens) should stay the way we are and live our now. For the contest, I chose the category of Writing and…
