Being a feminist today in 2015

Today, Feminism is seen as a thing of the past, and I haven't met many Latinas who Identify as a feminist, from my point of view it might be a culture conflict because In the old days, most of the time feminists were predominantly anglo, but its grown to more then that. Feminism isn't a woman's issue, its everyone's. We are all in the cause together, to make it equal for all. Feminism is important for the on coming generations because women need to keep standing up for their beliefs and…

Feminism in SXSW

Attending SXSW last week for Latinitas actually proved very empowering as far as female identity! 

In a world where women often face discrimination in the workplace SXSW panels were nonetheless bursting with successful female leaders.

From directors at mult-million dollar companies like Uber and HBO, to fashion leaders like Lucky Magazine editor-in-chef Eva Chen and makeup guru Michelle Phan, SXSW presented a diverse pool of business genius that also happened to be…

Feminism

In my opinion feminism is the movement to seek equal rights and opportunities for men and women. Not only employment rights, but in education, political, social and cultural. Fighting to have the same right and opportunities is very important because every human being is the same. What a feminist do is fight for women’s rights, the right to vote, the right to have a good job, the right to get paid well, the right to be respected, the right to speak up their mind and all the rights women…

Advice I Would Give To A Younger Version Of Myself

If I were ever given the chance to give advice to someone who is like a younger version of myself I would tell her to be strong. I would tell her that life is very short and it's  her job to make the most out of it and happiness is not a guaranteed aspect of life, it is something that you have to strive for every day. Happiness to me is being a place in life where you are constantly trying to better the life you have all while being kind to everyone that crosses your path. This as well as…

I am a Brave Girl

Just because I am a girl doesn't mean they can make a fun of me. Just because i'm a girl doesn't mean I'm not good at things. Just because I am a girl doesn't mean I cant get boy things.

Advice to younger females...

I would tell younger girls to study and take advantages of every opportunity they have in life. Do not waste time doing things that will not make you feel proud of yourself all the time. Also do not let other people tell you, you cannot do something you want. Be brave all the time and fight for your dreams. Always follow your heart and make whatever makes you happy. Love your family, friends and life all the time. No matter how you feel, you are worth a lot more than you think. Remember to…

Dear younger me (and all younger girls),

Remember that it's okay to feel things. It's the one thing I wish I knew when I was growing up. Even to this day, at 21 years old, I forget that feeling emotions is okay. So try not to ever forget that.

If you're sad because of a loss in the family or sad because a member of your favorite boy band quit, it's okay. You have every right to feel any and all emotions that you feel. Don't ever let anyone else tell you otherwise.

And it's best to ignore when anyone…

Advice for Girls

At the age of 21 the best advice I can give young girls is to be your absolute self. Being who you are will help you find your true friends, give you opportunities, and the confidence you need to face anything and everything. AND you'll be truly happy! Also focus on yourself and your future, prioritize because it'll will really benefit you in the long run. Above all just enjoy your life, don't rush to grow up take it a step at a time and go with the flow !:)

The Good about being a female!

Let's begin with the fact that our wardrobe is infinite! We can wear anything and everything and still look fabulous! From pants and t shirts to dresses and skirts to tank tops or blouses and don't foget about the shoes! Of course the fact that our hair has the same freedom! From having different hair styles to colors and cuts. Being a female allows us to have liberty and freedom of expression through clothes and hair and even make up, frankly if I were a boy, it would be too boring.

The best thing about being a female

The best thing about being a female is being able to multi-task which is doing a lot of things at the same time. We are also very creative, For example I like to get very creative when it comes to giving a gift to a friend or to a family member, also when a teacher asks me to get creative with a homework assignment , I really do my best. This semester the class that I really like Is education because the teacher always want us to be creative such as coming up with new ideas, and be creative…
