Blog-a-thon: Why am I Proud to be a Latina?

  In El Paso, I never credit the rich diversity of Mexican culture. Everyday, I hear the Spanish language and festive music, smell the greasy tacos and rice, and see the decorative murals, bright in color, adorned with scenes of fruit and gardens. It's easy to get bored of it all, when that is all that you see. I tend to take it for granted.

  However, I once spent a whole summer in Arizona, with a group of girls around my age. There were about two other latinas, but the rest were…

About Me

Writing "about me" paragraphs has never been my strong point. There isn't a lot I can write here that hasn't been stated on my page, I think I'd do better if I had some questions I could answer. But here it goes... My name is Alma Elizabeth Saenz Prieto, I didn't know I was supposed to write both of my last names on papers until the lady who gave me my double citizenship told me that if I didn't do so I would have to go back and correct all of my documents. I was born in Chihuahua, Ch. and…

March 6: What are you doing to help future generations of Latinas succeed?

I help the future because every year I go to to the beach in California and help clean it up. This is what I love to do and I think it is important for us to help out our environment. 

                -Victoria 

I am helping future generations of Latinitas succeed by being the first generation college student. Both of my parents did not go to college and I am the oldest, so I plan to go to college to be the class of 2025. Also, I would probably be on of the first to graduate…

Why I'm proud to be a latina

By Jesslynn C.

Brooke Elementary



I am proud to be a Latina because my Latina teachers teach me new things. They are nice and the best teachers. I think people should be a Latina because probaly it can change your life like you can probaly be a music player even though you do not even play. You can go see a free movie sponsored by Latinitas. We're watching Hidden Figures on Friday March 24 at the Google Fiber center. Or you can even have a party. That is why you should be proud… Continue

I joined Latinitas because I think Latinxs and women in general are not fairly represented in the media. This reason is that there are not that many women and Latinas in the newsroom or as producers. I want to be inside the newsrooms I want to tell stories…

She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertherless, she persisted.

This Wednesday Senator Elizabeth Warren read a letter written by Coretta Scott King to oppose Jeff Session's appointment as  Attorney General. In this 1986 letter King accused Sessions of discriminating against black voters in his role as a federal prosecutor. 

As she read, Warren was interrupted by Senator Mitch McConnell who order her to sit and remain…

A Letter from a Feminist that didn't attend the Women's March.

Sisters:

I'm sorry for not standing with you. Sorry for getting too comfortable. Sorry for thinking that I had more important issues to attend to. Sorry for separating myself from the political. 

This week in particular I found myself feeling down. A lot of changes in my life with new responsibilities. I find myself with water on my neck and this is why I thought I couldn't attend the march, but this is the most important reason for me to go.

I would have found support and…
