          Yesterday was a very special for me and my sisters and by sisters I mean sorority sisters. It was Kappa Delta Chi's Founder's Day and we celebrated our 28th anniversary!

Feminism

Posted by Vanessa Ramirez on April 7, 2015 at 11:35am 0 Comments

Being a Feminist to me means treating women unequally, not believing that women can have the same opportunities as men. It is wrong to treat women without the same privileges as men because we also need equal opportunities when it comes to education and employment. Women are also capable of doing great things for this world and deserve equal rights. I do think that Feminism is still important today because there is still people who are feminist an don't treat women the way they should be…

If I was the first Woman President

Posted by Vanessa Ramirez on April 7, 2015 at 11:54am 0 Comments

If I was the first Woman president I would give equal opportunities to both men and women both in the workplace and in education. Having equal rights for both men and women is very important to make this world a better place and live in peace. I would also make sure that everyone has medical insurance at low costs, so that they can visit the doctor and take care of themselves. Being a president I think is something very challenging because you have so many responsibilities and everyone is…

Obsession With Celebrity Culture And Why It Is Unhealthy: The Kardashian-Jenner Clan

Posted by Jackeline on April 8, 2015 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Nowadays it seems that you cannot scroll down your Facebook newsfeed with out seeing posts relating to the Kardashian-Jenner clan and similar "celebrities" and their lives. This poses a problem to me because people are being pushed (particularly women) to look and act according to the way their favorite celebrities would. Rather than pay any mind to what is going on in the world American media forces women to believe that these celebrities are someone they should aspire to be. Lately I…

Studying Tips

Posted by Vanessa Ramirez on April 9, 2015 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

When it comes to studying , I like to always review my notes or the assignments I did in class it is a way that helps me remember what I learned on that specific day. Also another way I would say it is effective is to highlight important concepts or important vocabulary words. When studying for an exam it is also important to take very good notes when in class write as much as possible about the topic covered in class, and be organized with your notes, for example highlight important things…

Going To The V-Day Monologue Event With My Niece

Posted by Jackeline on April 18, 2015 at 10:10pm 0 Comments

So earlier tonight I took my niece with me to the vagina monologue event that was hosted downtown. This was our first experience at an event like this so we did not know what to expect. Before the event I found that this episodic play written by Eve Ensler, is a key component in the V-Day movement. V-Day is a global movement (on or around Valentine's Day) where annual theatrical and artistic events are produced around the world to help out anti-violence organizations. This movement has…

The importance of sleep.

Sleeping is very important for everybody, we cannot be alive if we do not sleep well. We spend one third of our lives sleeping, and this help us to be healthy, active, it repairs our body, and keep us beautiful.  If we sleep 8 hours is more than enough to be healthy and ready to hit the day. It is very important because we need to be alert and concentrate at school to have good grades. It is not healthy to spend all night long studying for a test and go to school the next day without sleeping…See More

Good reads!

I'm not too sure if anyone shares the same passion that I have, but I absolutely love to read. You'll usually find an unread book on my person, unless I'm already loaded down with books or binders from school.If anyone else has this burning desire to pick up a good book/poem/magazine/short story, here are a few that I recommend to everyone. Some of the titles that I included might be a little tough to read, so forming a book club could help you understand the material a little better, and have…See More

Feeling overwhelmed? Here are a few tips to help!

      The older you get, the more it seems like there just aren't enough hours in the day. It can be tough juggling school alone, but once you add jobs, research, internships… it can all seem like too much! I don't have a job right now, but I do participate in research, and intern with Latinitas while attending UTEP as a Microbiology student who is trying her best to prepare for medical school, so it's safe to say that I feel overwhelmed a lot of the time, too! But, I do have a few tricks to…See More
