She’s a Tree
Look at her,
see how tall she stands.
Carrying everything and a little more.
But we never notice,
because she stands so tall
Like a tree
Her roots showing on her forehead…Continue

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!

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…Continue

I haven't been able to be in Mexico for a little more than a month now, and though it doesn't seem as much I miss it already. I miss Sundays in the bazaar del monu where you can find people selling secondhand items, but not for the profit only for the experience of being somewhere on Sunday mornings, and where the braceros still meet to protest.
I miss going to the mercado with my mother on viernes de cuaresma to eat fish tacos and lentils, because my mom was too lazy to…Continue

The "F" word for me means choice. Choosing my clothes either being sweat pants and an oversize t shirt or shorts and a tank top. For other means choosing to wear a hijab or not, wearing a dress to prom or a suit.
It means choosing a career path based on what I like, not what's expected of me. For other means staying at home mom, working full time, or not having children at all. Still there's a space for an option.
It means knowing that I have a space to move around and get…Continue

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…Continue

When I think of a feminist, I think of Beyonce because she helps us girls build up our and her songs support me.
A feminist means fighting for women's rights, like Beyonce. I do think being a feminist does matter. A feminist to me means that I get to stand for my rights and show the world that women can do what ever men do.
A feminist to me is someone that is independent of men. Women and men both learn.

"Yo creo que feminismo es una mujer que tiene derechos y que cree en ella misma."
"Para mi ser feminista es estar orgullosa de ser mujer. Ser feminista seria estar en un balance de igualdad tanto para las mujeres y los hombres. Saber que las mujeres no son menos ni mas que los hombres ni los hombres mas o menos que la mujer."
Feminism means to me that both males and females should be treated equally and should be able to do the…
