"Hello Celeste, I believe you did a great job with this blog and you hit the main points of what a SELFIE really is and how it is not what many people believe it to be but a form of us being able to acknowledge our beauty because every single…"

But first, let me take a SELFIE!

June 21st is National Selfie Day, so I thought I’d take this time to reflect on the role that the selfie has played in society in recent years. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the impact that selfie taking has on girls and women… Some sources suggest that being exposed to other people’s selfies on social media can really hurt someone’s self-esteem, while others say that taking and posting one’s own selfies just fuels a sense of vanity and self-importance in young people.…See More

Why I Say Latinx

My name is Celeste, and my preferred gender pronouns are she/her. This is a statement that I had never been asked to say before I started college in Pennsylvania in 2013. That is, I had no idea what it meant to have a gender pronoun preference and share that preference with others. I’m sorry to say that prior to my first day on my new college campus, I had not really been expected to wrap my head around the concept that gender identity did not have to conform to the he/ she binary. Someone…See More

Letter to Orlando shooting victims

Dear Orlando shooting victims, I cried when I woke up to the news of your injuries and your deaths. It’s human to sympathize. The nation cried and prayed and still cries and prays even though they don’t know you and I don’t know you. I don’t know you but I loved you and love you. It’s easy to say this but the fact that drives me to say it is what is difficult to come to terms with. I see myself in you. I see my friends in you. And if I love my friends and I love myself, how could I not love…See More

Happy National Best Friends Day!

"True friends are never apart... Maybe in distance, but not in heart."It might be kind of late, but I just wanted to say Happy National Best Friends Day! I hope you have taken the time to tell your closest friends how much you care about them! A lot of us can admit that we owe the world to our homegirls for being there for us when life gets sour, for sticking it out with us and helping to make it sweet again…When we are growing up and making friends in the process, at school, in the the…See More

#GIRLBOSS

#GIRLBOSS#Girlboss has become a popular hashtag for motivated young women and girls to use in recent years. This is a trend that is inspiring to many, and was kicked off by former Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso’s book #GIRLBOSS (2014). Amoruso’s book tells her true story of professional success, explaining that she had a rough start in life but worked hard to become the founder of an internationally renowned fashion retailer. An Amazon book summary states that, “She’s written #GIRLBOSS for other…See More

Summer Reading Goals

Summer Reading GoalsThe reason that I am not calling this a summer book list is that I don’t actually have a list of book lined up for the summer yet, although I’d like to. Right now, I am rereading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. I read this novel for a class this past semester, but it’s an entirely different experience to reread something for fun. So what’s to come when I’m done with this one, I don’t yet know. But I would appreciate some help! You see, I just have one…See More
