What am I thankful for.....that is a vary difficult question."Why?," you ask. Because when you open your eyes (may they be blue brown, green or hazel) everything is beautiful even the little things have easily earned a thank you of some sort and sometimes never get one. For instance, the garbage truck man who hauls him self out of the warm covers into a scratchy suit that smells of coke and rotten bread at the crack of dawn. He climbs into a rumbling truck that while…Continue

“Katniss is the hero, but she’s not very heroic.”
I stared at the sentence, squinting my eyes judgmentally. Immediately, I had counterarguments at the ready, mentally listing moments of heroism and bravery and self-sacrifice that our girl, Katniss, had done thus far in her (movie) journey. I skimmed briefly over the other words in the…Continue
As the holidays approach, we are bombarded with ads about all the new and wonderful things we can buy. Marketers know how to appeal to our senses. We live in a society where we are taught that exchanging money for goods feels really, really great. Have you noticed how stores play cool music, use cute bags and packaging, and place unnecessary items right in your line of vision or at check out to make you consider buying what you were not intending? Did you really need that extra…Continue
This past Saturday Latinitas El Paso held it's annual Aim High event at the El Paso Downtown Library. The event is meant for young girls from middle school through high school to learn about the different career options they have to explore. We encouraged the girls to attend college and pursue something that they truly love doing. We had multiple guest speakers sharing their experience with the girls while helping them to learn that no matter what obstacles get thrown your way you can…Continue
I have been thinking lately about how the manners of young boys have changed over the past years. Men used to stand up when a woman will get up, take their hats off to greet any person, even most of them would not dare to insult a woman. Now days men still open the door for you, but it is very rare to a men to open the door of a car for you; when are you going to enter and when you are going to get out of the car; some of them even move the chair in a way for you to properly sit. How these…Continue

There isn't much time left in this semester which is both exciting but stressful at the same time. On one hand we will have finished another semester but on the other next week starts finals week! (for me at least) Time for staying up late reviewing, late night village inn for the continuous coffee needed for the endless hours of studying. Which ever way you chose to prepare for finals one thing is certain, you are not alone in feeling this…Continue
The Saturday before thanksgiving week Latinitas had a Zumba workout. I really enjoy Zumba it is a workout that does not feel like a workout because you are having too much fun dancing. I feel that is the best workout for me personally and obviously for many people because it would not be so well known if others did not feel the same way. The interns and the volunteers enjoyed the workout we felt the burn in our legs. Right after Zumba we got into talking about all the different ways we can…Continue
I was gone, but now I am found.
I've been away ladies and I hope to be back in no time. For now, the library seems like the perfect place to reside during hrs. of unemployment (but actively persuing) and going hungry.
I talked to several young Latinas about their loved ones who happen to be in the military, but have no idea how to get their emotions on tract regarding the entire situation.
So here goes, I painted a picture for the start of this because…Continue
I mean it seems like we just finished celebrating Thanksgiving, oh wait we just did! But now it seems like the countdown to Christmas starts immediately after having your Thanksgiving meal! Can we just have a small break to recover from the serious turkey overdose? Every year it seems like this push for Christmas starts earlier and earlier. For instance I was at the store a few days before Thanksgiving (dangerous I know) and I already saw the employees setting up the Christmas displays.…Continue
