Blog-a-thon: Why am I Proud to be a Latina?

  In El Paso, I never credit the rich diversity of Mexican culture. Everyday, I hear the Spanish language and festive music, smell the greasy tacos and rice, and see the decorative murals, bright in color, adorned with scenes of fruit and gardens. It's easy to get bored of it all, when that is all that you see. I tend to take it for granted.  However, I once spent a whole summer in Arizona, with a group of girls around my age. There were about two other latinas, but the rest were…See More

"Can you please explain the Women's March to me? I'm a little confused about it's origin. By the way, did you know there was a Scientist March now?"

The Importance of... Game

   I want to start writing about the importance of things; mainly the importance of specific species of animals. Plants and natural resources are great too, but other topics can be considered. There are too many choices if I just take some off the top of my head, so I am asking for any suggestions. If you find yourself questioning, “why are sting rays important?” for example, you can leave that comment on my blog or page, and hopefully I’ll be able to answer it. This could actually be a fun…See More

Update on Eco-Column

Posted on March 10, 2017 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

  My betta, Chili Trung, and nerite snail, Gizmo, both survived! Unfortunately, the aloe vera and tomato plants died in an accident ( the terrestrial chamber tipped over). Still, I was able to take Chili and Gizmo home, and they are doing amazing. They looks much healthier, with great color and energy. Not only that, but I also got a 100 on my report for the project. An overall success!

Blog-a-thon: What is Feminism?

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 11:54am 0 Comments

  Feminism is the advocacy for equality among genders. Feminism does not aim to diminish the power of men, but demands the same power for women. What chromosomes (XX) or (XY) you're randomly born with should not determine anything about you, except what kind of reproductive system you will develop. And that body you develop is but a shell- you are who you are inside. The body is an asset for living in the physical universe, and you are the only one who has control of that body. It is like a…

Blog-a-thon: Chica Poderosa

Posted on March 7, 2017 at 11:30am 0 Comments

  My power comes from my determination- my future goals in life, and will to obliterate injustices all around the globe. Usually, my main focus is on animal rights and the urgent need to save endangered species from extinction, but in order to have success in this, I realize that human and environmental rights also need to be taken care of. We cannot expect starving people to have the motivation to change their agricultural methods, for example, and we cannot improve biodiversity unless…

Hi Taylor,

you asked me about the Women's March. It was in January 21 one day after Trump's Inauguration. It was a march to show that people around the country believed in equality for all genders. Here's more information on it https://www.womensmarch.com/global/

And yes, I heard about the Scientist March! I hope it really happens.
