Latinitas share how they celebrate the holiday season....

We celebrate Christmas with my family. We eat tamales and menudo at night. The first thing in the morning, we open the presents. I celebrate Christmas with my mom, my dad, my sister, my tias and my grandma. I will go to Juarez, Mexico this year. I celebrate this holiday on December 24 and 25. I think this holiday is special because you…

Proud Latinas

We asked some Latinitas what they like most about being Latina and here is what they said:

What does your culture mean to you?

It means Pride in everything we do. Our culture means self expression, satisfaction, and hardwork. It means to honor our family with all our effort. –Leslie B.

It means the freedom to express myself in any way. – Claudia B.

What is your favorite family tradition?

Time for Change (New Years Redolution)

Posted by Ariana Ortega on December 17, 2014 at 12:03pm 0 Comments

Ever forget imortant events or things that you're supposed to remember? Well it always happens to me. I seem to think that my brain will remember every single thing. But the truth is it doesn't . Taking the time to actually write down events or tasks down in a planner seems to be too much work at times. But as technology moves forward it's also time to use my phone as a planner. It's time for a change, not to be that forgetful friend! I'll change to be more oraganized and complete tasks on… Continue

Adult, teen, child, newborn-I want one, one day.

Posted by April C. Davila on December 6, 2014 at 7:00pm 1 Comment

During our era when Angelina Jolie and Madonna make it seem so easy in adopting a child from Africa and certain parts of Asia, someone in America may feel that they should do the same.  From an ethics standpoint, a load of cash cannot determine a families formation if given to adoption personnel. On the one hand one must remember that it is here in the United States where the highest number of children in foster care, runaways and poverty stricken kids…

Thanksgivivng Tradition

Posted by Latinitas Intern on November 26, 2014 at 12:15pm 0 Comments

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my family because they have been there for me and they motivate me to reach my goals. The way me and my family celebrate thanksgiving is that we get together and eat turkey, before we eat we first give thanks for something that we are thankful for. Also sometimes on previous years we have gone out of town to my aunt's house in Dallas and we spend time with her and my cousins. I think that it is important that this holiday we…

For many Americans, generously displaying table manners is probably the least of their worries. They have their education at the forefront of their waking lives, it is college after all. If they are hungry they come to the dining hall to eat be it from hunger, stress or even both. International students and some…

On the Road

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 else. I'm excited for…See More
