So who else is ready to go back to school in August? I have taken the semester off and I have to say I have missed the late night study sessions and the cramming in homework the night before its due.

Since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president in mid-June, his remarks about Latinos and others have only become worse. As a reminder, in his first speech he made remarks such as:
“When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime, they’re rapists, and some I…Continue

The tools that the media utilizes to send out its message about beauty standards can vary from social media to advertisements on a billboard. What you see and hear around you has been…Continue

I don't think it's right to change models by photoshopping them or adding so much makeup. The reason behind this is because young girls will stress trying to look like that although they do not know that it's false. This is not fair to people reading and looking at the magazine because they may feel self conscious about the way they look. This is also disappointing for the model…

I am 100% Dominican. And if you know any Dominicans you know the stereotypes. Big butt, tiny waist, loud, and of course expert bachata dancers. While there are so many amazing aspects of my culture like the passion for music and the pride that Dominicans have there are also many drawbacks.

The expectations I am…Continue

I can't think in anyone worse than Donald Trump. I feel like we are going back to the 50's or 60's when segregation was everywhere in the US. I feel that with him in power we are going to be worst than other decades. Instead of looking for a solution that will benefit both countries he just wants us extinct, so he can live happily ever after.…
