Hi girls, this is Eunice Sanchez I am an intern in marketing with Latinitas. I have graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) this past December. My major is on Marketing, I choose this degree because I think is really interesting the way you can communicate different messages depending on who are you talking to. Well, graduating from college feels great, amazing, and fantastic. Its like everything you have worked so hard, finally pays off. Everything all the nights you had…Continue
Dear Magazine Editor;
I think you should stop because people may not feel good about themselves. They may think they are not pretty enough to be without makeup or photoshop. They may be sad to see themselves look different from what they naturally look like. We honestly believe that they should stop photoshop because they should be able to be themselves. Honestly if girls are going to be photoshoped I think boys should be too. ~Celeste and Desiree
Many times a child being bullied is like a duck floating along a pond as predators swim below. They struggle to appear calm and unruffled on the surface, but below where no one can see they are paddling like mad, consumed with fear.

Every girl is made differently! Nobody is perfect, embrace your flaws, they are what makes you beautiful. Every girl has bad days where we don't feel too good about ourselves but the important thing to remember is who we are and to stay true to ourselves. You are beautiful. You are smart. Avoid the negativity and rise above it. A beautiful personality is more attractive than anything you can buy at the store! - Kristin

During this season of giving, Latinitas club members wrote about how they spread the spirit of giving and help their community.
I care about the environment! I help the community by collecting cans. I recycle it and earn lots of money. If I earn just enough money I give it to people in need. At my old school, I entered a program and I would pick up trash and make things out of it. One time, I…Continue
I've never been on a road trip in my life. It's always seemed a little scary to me, considering I can barely keep calm and still in a car ride of just two or three hours.
But, this year, when approaching the holidays, I was invited to go on a small road trip, just 12 or so hours, to a different state to go skiing, yet another thing I've never done in my life.
And while I've never tried either of things and am, admittedly, a bit afraid of both, I'm excited more than anything…
