Transfer International

I think the title sums it all up.

I was born in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico a border city right next to El Paso, Texas so it was easy to decide where to go to college, I just apply to UTEP and I've been there for a year a half but for a while now I've thinking on transferring and of course the idea sounds great, being in a bigger city, in a college I like better, living by myself or with friends but now that I've been accepted I'm thinking of how scary it actually is because I…

On the Road

I've never been on a road trip in my life. It's always seemed a little scary to me, considering I can barely keep calm and still in a car ride of just two or three hours. 

But, this year, when approaching the holidays, I was invited to go on a small road trip, just 12 or so hours, to a different state to go skiing, yet another thing I've never done in my life.

And while I've never tried either of things and am, admittedly, a bit afraid of both, I'm excited more than anything…

Season of Giving

During this season of giving, Latinitas club members wrote about how they spread the spirit of giving and help their community.

I care about the environment! I help the community by collecting cans. I recycle it and earn lots of money. If I earn just enough money I give it to people in need. At my old school, I entered a program and I would pick up trash and make things out of it. One time, I…

Time for Change (New Years Resolution)

Ever forget imortant events or things that you're supposed to remember? Well it always happens to me. I seem to think that my brain will remember every single thing. But the truth is it doesn't . Taking the time to actually write down events or tasks down in a planner seems to be too much work at times. But as technology moves forward it's also time to use my phone as a planner. It's time for a change, not to be that forgetful friend! I'll change to be more oraganized and complete tasks on…

Selena Gomez- I think Selena Gomez seems more like girl power because she is a very beautiful role model, and singer. Selena Gomez is very kind and…
