Higher Education

Last week the girls at Club Latinitas were taught about higher education and what it means to get a degree. I had the girls write in their journals to reflect on higher education and what they wanted to be when they grow up. Here is Paula's entry:"It is important to go to college because you would get a better education and you get better chances to be what you want. I would want to be an actor. I would be an actress because it would be alot of fun. I have learned that your education is very…See More

If I Were President....

This past week at Club Esperanza Acosta Moreno, the girls learned more about the presidential campaign and politics. We asked the girls what would they do if they were president, and here are their responses:"If I were elected president, I would make there be no more physical education anymore. The gas price would be 50 cents per gallon. There would be dance class all day." -Elena"If I was president the changes I would make are to stop the war, lower tax and gas prices, and no experimenting on…See More

Favorite Hispanic Tradition

As I think about all the wonderful traditions our culture has, my favorite has to involve food. We make great dishes that vary from sweet to spicy. My favorite traditional dish is chile con queso. In my family, we make queso for every occasion throughout the year. We have it for birthday parties, BBQ's, and for the holidays. When I think of Thanksgiving everyone talks about cranberry sauce and etc., but for me its the chile con queso. I end up pouring that yummy cheese over my burger, or…See More

"I agree I don't think a lot of people realize what exactly athletes go through! Olympians are pretty much the BEST athletes in the world, so to achieve that its about dedication to their sport!"

My past two weeks

I haven’t posted a blog these past two weeks, due to the summer camp we had here at Latinitas. I didn’t realize how busy I would be, how tired I would be, and how stressed out I would be. These girls were a handful, but it was worth it. I had to say I learned a few things from these girls, and it helped me appreciate them. But most of all, it felt well helping these girls and watching them have fun. They got to do arts and crafts, go on field trips, and to listen to different guest speakers.…See More

Something I appreciate

In my life I am grateful for many things, and little situations trigger me to remember that. Today it was appreciating a friend of mine. I woke up with the “Sexy and I know it” song stuck in my head, particularly the part where they sing “wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah!” I have a friend whose last name is Wiggs, and everyone calls him Wiggy. I instantly thought of him, and texted him this morning that I heard the song and thought of him. We continued talking and it’s amazing how we can…See More
