A lot of bilingual students are ashamed when it comes to being an ESL student. Which it represents English as a Second Language here in America. Which it is perfectly okay, because one language you use it on your outside activities, such as at home, friends, your personal life, and however you want to use it. As a difference when you talk English when it comes to school and doing professional activities, such as working, talking to professors.
A lot of students are shy due to this,…Continue

A few days ago we had our Healthy Chica event, it was my first time attending to one and I can say it was a total success. I walked out learning so many things, and being inspired by so many Latinas who provided information at the event.
We started with Yoga, some of the positions looked relaxing, and in a way like if you would stretch your muscles. Which for my opinion that relaxes the bones in so many ways. I can say that the flexibility of the trainers and how important breathing…Continue

It's been a while since I've written anything in here but the thing is yesterday I had an anxiety meltdown, I don't know where are things in my life going, and I thought well maybe I'm not the only one going through this and so I decided to share it.
I’ve always been an over thinker, I knew what I wanted to do with my life since I was 12, with this I don’t mean that my plans are exactly the same from back then, I mean I like planning things, and when things don’t go as expected…

“I get into this business and I'm like ‘Oh my God, you guys are totally racist, this is so absurd, this is so stupid!’ And I just couldn't believe it”-- said Academy and Emmy nominee Rosie Perez at Larry King Now interview.
Hello Latinitas! When we go to the movies, we don't always expect to see a Hispanic movie, not even Hispanic actors on the best-sellers of that week. Well, many Latinas out there are protesting big time about this issue that's been a reality in Hollywood movies…

I'm really happy to know that the company that makes the Barbie dolls were more open to the different body types and sizes of their dolls. I think that our society is having now a more open idea of the real role models that our future generations are going to be looking at. Since now teens and girls are interested at other things, Barbie was little by little left aside. Also, there are tons of different…Continue

When people talk about Valentine’s Day, one thing that comes to mind is spending time with your love one, but for one thing you can be too young to have someone you love. Giving out Valentine cards to your classmates is always sweet, it can be the simple princess ones that say how beautiful you are and for you to have a wonderful day, or it can also be just a simple heart shaped lollipop saying have a nice day. Some young girls like to give their best friends a cute stuffed animal, others…Continue

For years we have seen how the Barbie's evolution has changed every girls game, from the classical, tall, blonde hair, blue eyed model looking doll, to the fancy sports cars they have produced. So growing up with the mentality of having to look like that has been girls dreams for years. I know I imagined Barbie's life so perfect, a nice job, beautiful face, probably with the handsome tall beach looking guy. As I grew older, I came to realize like almost everyone that it was all part of my…Continue

This semester I decided to challenge myself and take a class of rock climbing at the UTEP recreational center. It is certainly something I have never done before and something I have always wanted to try. Today, on the first day of class I was a little nervous but at the same time excited. When I showed up to the climbing gym there were two girls already waiting for the class to start, so we waited together for the instructor to arrive. …Continue

To those who are thinking about college I would like to let you know of a program I did as a junior/senior in high school that helped me get into the school I wanted to. There have been recent articles focusing on the need to encourage low-income students to apply to top colleges and universities. Coming from a low income background myself, I didn’t think it would be affordable to go to an ivy league school or a fancy private college because I simply didn’t have the money to…Continue

As I come close to picking a major for my undergraduate degree, I can't help but feel like I'm at a crossroads. I feel like this desicion will influence the decisions I have to make for the rest of my life like: what kind of work do I want to do? What is my passion? What do I care about? what do I want to do with my time on earth?
I know these get pretty existential real quickly but sometimes you can't help but think about the big questions in life.
All throughout high school I…Continue

As I go into Barns and Nobles trying to find some books for my classes, my friend who was with me and I came across the "love" section. We started scanning through until she pulled out a book that is called I Suck At Relationships So You Don't Have To, she thought It seemed like an interesting book. The front of the cover had an older what looked like a Latina women, she kind of looked like Sofia Vergara, holding a big heart lollipop on her right hand, while her other hand was on…Continue
