Body Image, Alvarez HA Spring2013

Learning body image for the Alvarez girls was somewhat difficult. They are so young and beautiful that any 10 year old like themselves would care less about the way they looked. The girls thought that being beautiful was the kind of person you are, and the clothes you wear. A pretty dress can make all the difference. Although that is already a start for superficiality, they didn't seem to have any qualms with the way they were shaped. So we thought we'd help them out and forewarn them of the…See More

The dress, inspired by the one and only Linsay Lohan

Miss Lohan is infamous for her behavior, addiction to drugs, criminal background and all-around bad decisions, but she is also known as a heartwarming and impressionable childhood actress. Much like many Americans, and Latinas, Lohan is not alone. There are many girls in this country who battle addiction, self-esteem problems, and most of all reality.Growing up, Lindsay Lohan was one of my…See More

Learning about Body Image

I run one of Latinitas' after school camps for girls at the Kennedy housing center every Wednesday. This past week we discussed body image, which is the way you think you look depending on the way other people view you, and the credit or discredit you give yourself. So as the girls walked in together laughing I thought they were the cutest things and super pretty with their hair done showing their big smiles. I was super excited to start the lesson, surely these girls had confidence.When I…See More

Last month the Alvarez club and I whipped up a couple ideas on how to make El Paso a better place, in honor of Global youth service day. Global Youth Service day is an annual campaign celebrating and getting millions of children and youth into wanting to improve their communities through some kind of community service or service learning. The girls addressed their community's most important issues and tried to get their schools and families involved. Some ways to solve issues that the girls…
