I am proud to live in a time where more than ever before, women are celebrated for their strength and determination. I am grateful for my own upbringing; I was raised to appreciate my heritage, to appreciate the gifts I was given and to work hard to achieve my goals.
I appreciate Latina celebrities who raise our status in the world, but even more than that I appreciate my mother, my aunts, my grandmother. These are women who have overcome a great deal of adversity to create… Continue

Latinas come in all shapes and sizes. Some are light skinned and have blue eyes and others are Morenas with brown eyes. Some speak Spanish better than they do English and some hardly even know Spanish. And although every Latina is different from the next, one thing about Latinas remains true: most Latinas are proud of their heritage.
In today’s America where more couples than ever are interracial and many young kids are multi-cultural, it is becoming harder to define what being… Continue

In the 90s, corpses began to appear in the desert lands that surround Cd. Juarez, Mexico. Linked by description, these corpses were of young women who were raped and beaten, their broken and bruised bodies sprawled naked and dead over the sand dunes. Most were employees of nearby maquilas
or factories as they're referred to in the area. They were working to support families, brothers, sisters, children, and seeking a better life for themselves. Working over-time, often late into the… Continue

I love my Hispanic heritage, and I love
being a Latina. I love that I don't fit in with the "normal" image of young women, the kind that only do what they are told by others. I love being independent most of all. Even though I have a close knit family, they are supportive enough to let me go after my dreams and not object to that, unlike some other families. My values are already very established for my age, and I attribute that to my family and my culture. I love the family side of the… Continue

So…I’m stuck at home trying to whip out this bronchitis germ…yes it hurts like hell…and bad timing… I got a solo for the musical I am in.

In light of my recent liberation from final exams and my Insomnia, you get treated to another nonsensical rambling blog, which ends abruptly and utterly pointlessly.
