Mestiza (a poem)



Disclaimer: This wasn’t written to insult anyone, this is just my own insight into a current issue that still lurks in many cultures, being of Mexican heritage, I thought I would focus on my community first.This poem was inspired by a 7th grader who is a Latinita who is an English learner and is possibly new to California. I tutor her along with other kids her age, all Latinos and Latinas. However when she did not fully accept her native…

I am not an Object.

I am not an object

I am not some toy you can play with

I am not some flower you can display in a vase

I am not an animal you can cage in.

It may be easy for you too look at me as just a piece of meat

However I have more honor than that, I have dignity.

Unless I consent, please move on.

I am not a challenge or a future conquest.

Please don't honk at me or whistle or leer,

that's just rude, and I am not in the…

My Motivational Playlist

Lets face it, being a motivated chica isn't always easy! We all have those days, weeks (or in my case months) where its hard to find inspiration to do anything other than be lazy or sleep. You know you have been there, whether you find yourself staring at a blank screen, a blank page or even a neglected pair running shoes.

Getting motivated isn't an easy task, thats why when I need a pick me up I rely on the power of music. It is truly amazing how listening to one…

Latina pressures growing up

Many Latina families these days feel that if the young woman are not married by the age of 18-21 that they should get married. Since I myself was about 15 years old I was always focused on graduating high school and going to college and making a future for myself and some of the girls in my family had already been involved in relationships already setting there future and were not even 18 years old yet. Some never went to college they just took on the old fashioned beliefs of many Mexican…

Daysi La Latinita from Miami

Hey everybody! How are my Latinitas? 

My name is Daysi. I'm 25 and I'm half-Nicaraguense and half-Spanish. 

But to tell you the truth, I'm a big time Miami girl. I love this city. It's not 

just because of the amazing sunshine, beautiful downtown area or of course

the famous and infamous Miami beach, it's because of the people! 

I've often heard complaints about people from Miami. "They are loud", 

"sometimes they are rude", or the most common one…

Thinking about Law School?

Thinking about law school?

 

Let me tell you, there are a lot of things that you need to keep in my when choosing this particular career path. Before I decided I wanted to go to law school, I had these ideas of what that would mean and how I would get there. Therefore, in order to understand the complexities of law school, let me take a moment to break down the myths surrounding it.

 

Myth #1: You have to major in a law-related field as an…

"Zumba-nitas"

I had the pleasure of teaching a short Zumba class on the last day of the Latinitas Spring Break Camp. It was a blast seeing all the younger faces laughing and trying to keep up with the routines. I began to reminisce about the first time I ever Zumba-ed. I participated in my first Zumba class…

Super heros in young girls.

I'm not going to think up a super hero idea. I'm going to BE the super hero. I am going to find the superior powered being that lies deep within me. "Why? Why so, Amaza? That is such a ridiculous and outrageous idea." is probably what you are thinking by this point in this blog post. Reason? The reason is because I believe I can make a difference. Heck, I believe all girls can change how the world looks at women. With me wanting to be a pilot and seeing what a male dominant careerit is, kind…

I'm a SUPERHERO!

       If I were a superhero my name would be SUPER C! I would have the capability to go back in time, go foward in time and pause time. I could fast foward in time and see what my life looked like. If I did not like it I could change it. I think that would be super awesome. If I could pause time I could stop a burglary or someone doing something bad. I could go back in time and change things and make better decisions or get an answer on a test correct. This is the…

My Superhero

I really don't know what my superhero would look like besides that she is a SHE! My super heroine would have the same powers as Wonder Woman but have a little more powers like invisibility and the power to read minds. I would have her look like a normal girl but when she is called for duty she would have an outfit that looked like a black jumper. Yeah I know it is simple but I really don't care honestly.I would like girls out there to know that they can be leaders too and do what ever they…
