So I am currently taking a Chicano/Chicana class and what we were talking about yesterday I thought it was a good class conversation.
It all started on how the rights of men and women are so different, a few years back, and how today we still see some discrimination on the women, just because we are women. Society has classified us as "weak", and that is how some jobs see us as..."weak".
That was not his point tho, his point was, if that is why men do not graduate from…Continue

So as a student I am part of an organization at UTEP; and during this week, we got together, and with the help of KCOS we were able to ask the people in UTEP what their American Dream is.
For example, yes there are people around the world that want to come to the U.S. because they will have a better chance, and they are able to have the "American Dream" which for some is be a student, since the U.S. supposedly has a good education, they try to come here and get a taste of themselves,…Continue

I have recently taken a huge step in my life, a step my 15 year old self would have never imagined my 18 year old self doing. I've gotten a huge opportunity to work in the field I love, talking to others, taking charge of my life, and I love it. I'm officially an adult(ier) version of myself, Andrea 2.0.
Sometimes though, I can't help but sit back and reflect on how my life was one year ago when I wasn't overwhelmed with phone calls, emails, assignments, etc. When life was relatively…Continue

Hello, my name is Rebecca Portillo and I am a marketing major here at UTEP.I chose this major because consumer behavior intrigues me and I like the creativity and critical thinking involved in this field. By the end of this semester, I will be a senior. I have lived in El Paso all of my life but I would like to travel more. In my spare time, I like to go to concerts (usually at the Lowbrow or Tricky Falls). Right now my favorite song is “Seasons (Waiting on You)” by Future Islands. I…Continue

So this past weekend I was able to attend the Kidspalooza for the first time. I had never even heard of this event that was for kids. As I get there, I noticed it was something big, they closed down some streets, and they had booths for kids and parents, rides, and food.
My first impression was how neat it was. I had always thought of only events for adults, such as concerts, block parties, etc. The only time I thought El Paso had family events was for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and…Continue

I remember when I first turned 18..that was a big number, because you are not considered a teenager anymore, instead you start taking adult responsibilities. Some things are not actual responsibility, but we consider them, because they seem important for us, such as giving time to others, which it is important, but not as important as other things. An example would be voting. And yes maybe you have heard about it through out the years on how important it is to vote, and what not.
