Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit a couple of Latinitas after school. I'm working a story right now that benefits from some personal insight from these girls.
I didn't know what to expect, joining in with the girls. I've never been a part of this Latinitas program. I wondered if they'd be willing to work with me.
I don't know why I was so nervous! The girls were wonderful and really helpful.
It was an interesting experience for me because I've never interacted…Continue

Spring Break had to end some time, right?
I spent an entire week sleeping in and catching some free shows at SXSW. It was quite relaxing, sleeping in late and not thinking about school so much.
I didn't get to go home this time because my boyfriend's truck broke down and we waited for his family to come up and help him fix it. By then, the money wasn't feasible and we didn't go home. I did talk to my mom about it and she understood. I hope I get to see her soon,…Continue

Some kids said that “Latina” is a singer or an actress. I found that this was interesting because the elementary school that I went to is composed approximately of 95% Latinos.
Also, I asked the children if they could name a Latino or Latina that is on the media and…Continue

I have a girl friend that always set up any room, with limited supplies, in a gorgeous state. You’d be stunned at what she could do with a patterned rug, a few framed photos, and a window treatment. And she always got style compliments regarding the way her own house was decorated. It’s no surprise that this same friend of mine is now a very successful interior designer!
A career as an interior designer is more than…Continue

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.
