Future Latina hero

As a future Latina hero I would be like to be known as the person who gave back and helped strengthen the community. I want to be known for empowering other girls and women. I believe it is important to foster a strong sense of self and confidence to reach success. At times girls may not have a strong foundation to succeed. I want to be known to help young girls attain a solid self esteem and confidence to continue the next generation of strong women. Life is about helping others.See More

chica poderosa

I am a chica poderosa because I continue to reach my goals regardless of fear, hesitation, anxiety, and not knowing. Going through life with anxiety and uncertainty has put limitations on pursuing what I wanted in the past. Being  a chica poderosa means not being afraid of making mistakes and taking on challenges to the best of your ability. A chica poderosa bounces back from difficult times and becomes stronger.  Though a chica ponderosa isn’t always tough, she can also be sensitive, caring…See More

Helping the future generation

 For the past 3 summers I have been involved with planning summer camps. I enjoy taking part in motivating girls to be the best person they can be. Watching the girls enjoy guest speakers, activities, field trips and special projects like the mural is a rewarding experience. It is great to be involved in a process to enrich girls with experiences and empowerment. In a way these summer camps contributes to increasing their self esteem and confidence for the future. I hope they will take our…See More

Latina Stereotypes in Mainstream Culture

The Latino culture is a very diverse culture that consist of many types of Latinos. Unfortunately that is not reflective in mainstream media in  the U.S  and in several countries in Latin America . Many Latinas that are cast in shows and films are always the same in skin color, body shape, and accent. Many Latinas portrayed in the media we consume, are light skin women with the stereotypical body shape of a tiny waist with "curves in all the right places", often with a gifted chest and an…See More

Latinitas 2015 Summer

It is always a great and fun experience taking part in the Latinitas Summer Camps. I started as an intern who stayed for the summer to help out with the summer camps. Little did I know that that next summer I would be trusted with the responsibility to lead the summer camp. The opportunity really excited me. I absolutely enjoy being with the girls and at the same time help in setting up awesome field trips and filling their days with inspiring guest speakers as well as fun activities. Once I…See More

The "F" word

Posted on March 3, 2016 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Feminism is a word that can be scary if a person does not necessarily know what it means or stands for. I have come across many individuals who shame others who is a feminist. Many times its due to the fact that they lack the knowledge of what it truly means or feed into the message that feminism means hating men. 

Feminism means standing up for equality no matter what gender or color. Feminism also means standing up for every aspect of equality and to continuously challenge…

Latina I admire

Posted on March 2, 2016 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Whenever someone tells me about a person I admire and has motivated me, my mother immediately comes to mind. Throughout her life she had many challenges to overcome. She had twins at the age of 17, she managed to continue to go to college and stay employed while caring for three children. The road was not a smooth one at all. She gives me all kinds of strength to continue going through my graduate program, work, and internship. All I have to do is think if she did, I can do it. To this day…
