Aim High

This past Saturday Latinitas El Paso held it's annual Aim High event at the El Paso Downtown Library. The event is meant for young girls from middle school through high school to learn about the different career options they have to explore. We encouraged the girls to attend college and pursue something that they truly love doing. We had multiple guest speakers sharing their experience with the girls while helping them to learn that no matter what obstacles get thrown your way you can overcome…See More

Finals are fast approaching!

*cues dramatic scary music*There isn't much time left in this semester which is both exciting but stressful at the same time. On one hand we will have finished another semester but on the other next week starts finals week! (for me at least) Time for staying up late reviewing, late night village inn for the continuous coffee needed for the endless hours of studying. Which ever way you chose to prepare for finals one thing is certain, you are not alone in feeling this way. Almost every single…See More

Is it Christmas already?

I mean it seems like we just finished celebrating Thanksgiving, oh wait we just did! But now it seems like the countdown to Christmas starts immediately after having your Thanksgiving meal! Can we just have a small break to recover from the serious turkey overdose? Every year it seems like this push for Christmas starts earlier and earlier. For instance I was at the store a few days before Thanksgiving (dangerous I know) and I already saw the employees setting up the Christmas displays. There…See More

Time to Bundle Up!

It's time to bust out the coats and start the massive layering for winter! Personally this is my favorite time for fashion because you can layer up and be comfy.

Hunger Games Blog: Is Katniss a good role model for girls?

I do think that Katniss plays a good role model for girls. She shows many great leadership qualities such as being selfless for instance. When her sisters name was picked from the drawing Katniss instead volunteered to take her sisters place, she knew her sister wasn't strong enough for the games so she acted quickly to save her. There is also the part in the movie where the smaller girl, Roo, was all alone and Katniss took care of her as best she could even though it was a game. Katniss also…See More

Hunger Games Blog Contest: What makes a good leader?

Do you think just anyone could be a leader? Well through my time in college I have learned about many theories on leaders. Such as there is a theory stating that leaders are not made but they are born with certain characteristics that make them a leader. Then on the other hand there is a theory that states that leaders are molded according to their surroundings and what they are asked of. But in my honest opinion I believe that just about anyone can become a leader, but what does it take to be…See More
