Back to school speech

Posted on September 10, 2009 at 3:29pm 0 Comments

I thought Obama's back to school speech was effective because it was directed to students and encouraged them to take adavantage of their education because it is their key to success. Using personal examples as well as some from some students struggling with with other issues and are still succeeding in school was a good way to motivate not only children but any student whether they're in elementary, middle, high school, or college.

Telling students that not everyone will become a… Continue

I like a lot of things about going back to school. Now that I am a Junior in college and have started taking classes that deal specifically with my major (Communication Studies with a Minor in Secondary Education) I have made a lot of new friends that are studying the same thing. I know that I am going to have a lot of them in my classes so it makes it more fun because we get to work on topics that we are interested in and also get to network. I love going to The University of Texas at El Paso… Continue

I was born in Mexico but have lived in Texas most of my life. My parents are not completely against it, but do not really believe in interracial dating.

The 4th I was with my family for a while, then with my boyfriend's family, then we watched the fireworks with my family at a park. We ate some good food, had fun, and later met up with some of my friends to watch some more fireworks. It was one of the best Independence Day celebrations I've experienced since I moved to El Paso 14 years… Continue

my mom

Posted on May 15, 2009 at 9:30am 0 Comments

There are sooo many things that make my mom special! First of all she is a wonderful mother and friend to me and my 3 sisters. She dropped out of school at age 16 to work at a bank and help out her family until age 20 when she married my dad. For 16 years she dedicated her life to all of us making sure we always had everything we needed. When we moved to El Paso, Tx she started working and is now certified in various computer programs and is an administrative secretary at Region 19. She is very… Continue
