Arrested by last name: Gonzalez!

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on May 3, 2016 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

"We have to continue to fight for the families like the family that I saw inside. As I was being processed and I was being questioned; as I was trying to defend my rights and being pushed back on, I saw the faces of two children in one of the holding cells. That's why we have to continue to fight and that's why we're, you know,  going to say 'not one more' and dump Trump," said Jacinta Gonzalez, a US citizen who was arrested at one of Trump's rally in Arizona.

Bad luck Ms. Bennett

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on April 25, 2016 at 2:25pm 0 Comments

I got mad at reading this story chicas. A nurse student sued her college for fallacies! Terri Bennett complaint to the director of Pima Community College about classmates disrupting her learning process inside the classroom due to Spanish speakers. 



What? Let me then say I am disrupted by English speakers all the time at UTEP. Does this makes sense? Of course not! You cannot just tell people in which language they should talk or not! With what bases is she suing the college? With… Continue

Sexual Harassment Errors

Posted by Jazmine Arreola on April 16, 2016 at 12:25am 0 Comments

Yesterday I walked through my college campus.  I saw a row of T-shirts hanging like dead men on a clothesline with words written all over them.  As I walked closer, there was the usual "No means No," "Still not asking for it," and a variety of other phrases used to "encourage" victims of sexual harassment to continue being the strong people that they are.  However, instead of feeling proud of these well-meaning individuals, I was rather frustrated.  Yes, a person shouldn't force themselves…

Dear Future President:

Posted by Gabriela Garcia on April 19, 2016 at 10:39am 0 Comments

Last week we had a political lesson at our after school clubs.  Here are some of the letters our Latinitas wrote to our future president.



Dear future president,

Please work on student debt and immigration issues. I am a Latina and would like to see these issues addressed. I know both of these are concerns for the future generations.

Thank you.

 

Dear Donald Trump,



I am very aware that you are running for president of the United States, and I…

Music of the Moment!

Posted by Rebecca Portillo on April 22, 2016 at 10:38am 0 Comments

I've always been really into music blogs like Blalock's Indie Playlist, Brooklyn Vegan, Pitchfork, Noisey, etc. I've always wanted to make one but kept running into excuses for myself. So here it is Becky's April Playlist hope you like it! 

 First artists I wanted to highlight were the Arcs. I didn't hear about them until last week.LAST WEEK! Can you believe that? If you think they're very reminiscent of the Black Keys you are on to something because the lead singer of the Black Keys…

This Latina is doing something girl, what about you?

Posted by Grecia Sanchez on April 25, 2016 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Would you believe me if I tell you a Latina athlete is already doing activism for stopping racism at her college? Yes chica. Sanjuanita Martinez didn't stop for a degree nor organization to help supporting her origins at Cornell College from Iowa, institution in which she is currently studying. 



She belongs to the land of Bowie, Texas and is currently one of Cornell's most prominent athletes at cross country and track runner. Last season, she made it to the 19th place at the Division… Continue

Why seeing Gina Rodriguez on the cover of Women's Health was so refreshing

Posted by Emily on April 16, 2016 at 7:28pm 0 Comments

This Saturday morning, I needed a pick me up and reading something inspirational and powering is always the ticket. Well, I started out with my usual cup of coffee and watched Jane the Virgin to distract me. Like every morning, I check all of my social media and sweeping through Twitter is nothing unusual. I then came across Gina Rodriguez being talked about and I decided to follow the trend and I came across Women's Health magazine and right in the cover was Gina Rodriguez. Something deep…

(FEAR)ce

Posted by Andrea Luna on April 1, 2016 at 10:29am 0 Comments

Growing up, we learn to develop fears, things that hold us back from enjoying life as much as we can. However, what if I told you that fears don't hold you back but rather empower you?

Many of us are scared of typical everyday occurrences and we've been scared since we were in diapers of these things,

fear of spiders

fear of heights

fear of the darkness

fear of clowns

fear of public speaking, etc.

But what about real fears? The kind…

Self-esteem v. Photoshop

Hello chicas! Let me give you the latest: Latinitas was present last Saturday April 30th at Anthony Middle School to present the workshop BeYounique. This workshop emphasized the controversy of body image and media, focusing on the low self-esteem some girls may experience concerning media photos or even images from models which are modified by the use of Photoshop.One of the many activities presented at this workshop consisted of writing a letter for the editor of such magazines, the ones in…See More

10 Reasons to Love Yourself

Today, we are faced with an every day challenge to conform to what society believes she should look like, act like, and think like. It seems as if our generation has lost touch of what being ourselves is really like. We are immediately stopped by thousands of ads that remind us that seem to aim to drill into our minds that one imperfection is enough to stain our entire being, and that's not the case.I want to remind, not only women, but also men, that it doesn't matter where you come from, what…See More

My experience with Chica Power Fest

Last week, Latinitas hosted Chica Power Fest at the Miner Village of UTEP. I have never seen such an amazing and cooperative work from various organizations!

9 Things Busy People Would Like Others to Know

Lately I've been feeling very pressured in situations regarding my responsibilities not only in school, but outside of school. At home, with my friends, at work, etc. Sometimes it feels as if others don't understand you! (Yes, momma I'm talking to you)But I don't want to sound like some troubled individual because quite frankly I'm not. I enjoy the things I do, and I enjoy having a million things to do, however... there are a few things I'd like to explain to some of you who just don't quite…See More
