Keep searching and asking, then acting. Don't think on the purpose too much and you'll find meaning.
EVEN if meaning, to you, goes beyond school intellect or a stationary, habitual work ethic. The road to finding yourself is a journey.
Before you know it, you'll be so consumed with you that he/she will be that blurry dot in your life.
That dot that was a speck.
That speck that became a blob.
That blob that became a figure.…
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
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…
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…Continue
