This past May, my older brother graduated from college and already secured a job as a high school math teacher. This week, two of my younger cousins are graduating from high school. In the Fall 2012 semester, my younger brother will be in eighth grade. As for me, I will be a junior in college. Needless to say, I'm feeling incredibly old.
It's cliche to say, but I feel like it was just yesterday when I didn't have a younger brother and my older brother and I were four- and…Continue

Even though I have lived in El Paso for most of my life, my body has yet to grow accustomed to the scorching heat and arid air. The effects of the desert climate are exacerbated ten times over after I come back from my comfortably humid little college town of Ithaca, New York and am forced to weather the 100 degree, Sun City weather. Being back compels me back into habits I have neglected to keep up. For instance, water intake. Up in Ithaca, which is surrounded by lakes and waterfalls, and…Continue

Growing up, I was never aware of my family's financial struggles. I can honestly say I was never in want, but then again my parent's never allowed us to be dissatisfied. We weren't allowed to complain about eating leftovers, hand-me-down clothes or opting for the generic brand over our "pricey" favorites. For me, every American family lived this way. This was normal.
Looking back, I don't think I grew up disadvantaged or poor, but rather blessed. I don't remember times being hard.…Continue

As I closed the dorm room door on parents in the summer of August 2011 I knew what I had done was irreversible. I was now completely alone in the big city of Austin, Texas.
Those first weeks at The University of Texas at Austin were some of the hardest times of my life. I had never known anything but El Paso. The heat and humidity in Austin was unbearable for me. I became convinced that my hair would never be anything but a frizzy afro. Real Mexican…Continue

An interesting article written by Anne-Marie Nuñez and Elizabeth Murakami-Ramalho on improving educational standards of Latino students, encouraging students, and empowering them to become successful in their professions. Article heavily focuses on faculty involvement. Here's an excerpt:

I was cleaning my bookshelf this morning -- by cleaning I really mean moving the books around to make it look "less" cluttered. I know, I know, I am terrible, but over the years I have accumulated too many books to the point where I have forbidden myself from purchasing any unless I absolutely need them, or if they're available for the Kindle or Nook -- yes, I have both .... but I like the Kindle better.
While I was "cleaning" I stumbled across a forgotten copy of Lorna Dee…Continue
