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
During the Be Unique Workshop the Latinitas girls wrote about a strong role model in their life that they think rocks! Here are some of their responses.
My role model would be my sister because since she was 14 years old she was already working and finished high school and college and she worked when she was in school and now she is working because she studied her career.
Zendaya because she tells everyone to follow their dreams and life has…Continue
This past Tuesday I got the opportunity to watch the advanced screening of the Hunger Games Catching fire and let me tell you it was the BOMB! I'm not a big reader so when I heard about the books I didn't even bother to check them out. Then, after hearing all sorts of comments about the books and with the release of the first movie I decided to go watch it.I loved the first movie because of Katniss.I love the fact that she sacrifices herself for her sister.She volunteers as a tribute for the…Continue
This week I had my first experience working. I can honestly say that my work is not work because of how much I enjoy being a camp counselor.
Last week I attended a journalism convention with my school publication in Boston, Massachusetts. While there, we all attended numerous sessions that would help us as young journalists. The sessions emphasized on how to conduct better interviews and write better stories. Capturing your audience's attention and maintaining it all has to do with the tone of your article.…Continue
It's Thanksgiving week and I'm super excited for all of the wonderful movies that I've seen and been looking forward to seeing for months (or weeks).
First off, the Hunger Games: Catching Fire (don't worry, no spoilers here). To be honest, at first, I hadn't wanted to go see the movie. I didn't like the second and third book all that much, so I didn't plan on watching anything more than the first. Last week, however, my friends decided that it would be great if we all went to…Continue
This past Saturday the Latinitas volunteers and I had the the chance to experience a new workout craze known as Crossfit. I have heard that it is super addictive and you never repeat the same workout twice. Arriving at the gym intimidated me but thankfully our trainer for the day was very sweet and patient with those of us that were not familiar or experienced with the workout. We started with a warm-up that included stretching with a plastic pipe, then for the next 20 minutes we had to do…Continue
This past Monday Latinitas El Paso held a Be Unique workshop at a community center. The workshop helped girl learn about self-confidence and healthy body image through fun games and activities. For one of the activities we had the girls write self- esteem boosting sayings on the paint canvas and also asked…Continue
Today there was a lot of buzz surrounding a particular event that is scheduled to be held this Wednesday on the UT Austin Campus. The Young Conservatives of Texas are no strangers to controversy. Just last month, they held a bake sale in which prices were determined based on ethnicity.
