Shout out to all the college chicas out there!

Posted by Jackeline on April 11, 2015 at 6:44pm 0 Comments

This month and the next month is definitely crunch time. This is the time where a bunch of projects, papers, and exams are due and everyone at school is stressed out because of all their work on top of their out of school engagements. I can definitely feel the stress at this point but I am determined to get the grades I have been working for this entire semester. It is nice to once in a while take a breather from everything, which is what I realized today. Lately, I have been guilty of…

I am really very thankful with God because he is so good to me he gave me my family that is the greatest gift…

How did you prepare for college?

In all honesty, I really didn't prepare much for college, aside from taking several AP courses in high school and applying to a few scholarships my senior year. I feel like I didn't have the proper guidance from counselors and wasn't told to take courses that could apply as…

The Importance of Etiquette!

Posted by Eunice Miyuki Sanchez Acosta on April 6, 2015 at 9:45am 0 Comments

By etiquette I mean a certain social behavior according to the norms of the society. It is very important for every girl to know how to behave in different social environments. For example you are not going to behave the same way in a reunion with your friends than at a reunion with your parents friends. The society expect us to be well educated and talk to older people than us with respect. This is very important because it can open a lot of doors for us, if other people see that we are…

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

CODE CHICA EVENT WAS AWESOME!

Saturday was the Code Chica gaming and coding event in Austin, Texas. We got together a large group of girls to learn about envisioning and producing creative games. Joining us were Latinitas supporters, including Facebook, who discussed with the girls their own paths to success in the technological world. The girls all imagined and created their own video game characters and designed looks and storylines for them. Then, they used technology to bring their ideas to life on the computer…See More

Going To The V-Day Monologue Event With My Niece

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 brought…See More
