I'm a Chica Poderosa Because...

I'm a chica poderosa because I have found myself free and so motivated to do more things on my own. I have learned that moving away from my hometown is not so scary as I thought it also made me discover myself more and what I'm capable of reaching. I miss my family but to be honest, I'm really happy and excited about my decision. Is not that now that I'm on my own I can do whatever I want but I feel that sometimes…

Greetings form SA

Hello my dear Latinitas,

I just stopped by to say hello and to tell you all how much I miss you. I'm currently living in San Antonio and has been a unique experience so far. The first thing that I want to mention is that my English has improved...that's for sure. Where I work, I'm the only fluent…

I'm a chica poderosa because...

I try to be the most original as posible, I sometimes do not follow the rules and that makes me get in trouble. I make my own decisions and try to make them count. I speak when something that I think is not fine, and I do try to be against the cruelty that sometimes society prejudice other individuals.

What it is being a feminist?

Last week a friend of mine gave me as a gift a book, that is about important women in history. Not all of them are Latinas, but they did important contributions to the society. Something interesting about this book is that some of these women were considere as "rebels" because they didn't follow the norms in which women had to act. 

The book is call…

Fue encontrada 11 dias más tarde por su ex esposo, lo que me llamo la atención al leer de ella es que todo se lo guardaba.… Continue

Historias de mujeres...

Hola mis queridas latinitas,

Hoy vengo a compartirles de un libro que empeze a leer apenas ayer. Su nombre como es 'Historias de mujeres' por Rosa Montero. Ella es una periodista española y en su libro habla de las experiencias de 15 diferentes mujeres que han aportado bastante de su vida a la sociedad feminista. Dejenme decirles que no me considero feminista, más si creo en la igualdad de hombres y mujeres en algunos aspectos de la vida. Regresando al libro les puedo decir que hasta… Continue

Barbie Petite

I'm really happy to know that the company that makes the Barbie dolls were more open to the different body types and sizes of their dolls. I think that our society is having now a more open idea of the real role models that our future generations are going to be looking at. Since now teens and girls are interested at other things, Barbie was little by little left aside. Also, there are tons of different…

T.V show Stalker

Since January is the month of Stalking Awareness, I remembered about this T.V. series that is called Stalker. I personally enjoy all detective/ police series and that type of shows because I tend to get all excited if the main characters will resolve the case and thing like that. Something that caught my attention from this series is that it talks about an issue that some of us have or are experiencing in our lives. There…

Disney is adding a new princess to their family, Princess Elena de Avalor

We are proud to know that our Hispanic heritage is gaining more background on the television. Event that she will be appearing on television, as princess Sofia cousin and not in a movie is a start. There are television shows, like Dora La Exploradora, that also embrace the latino culture. I think that Princess Elena will make a good impact on the audience... in general. By this, I also think that Disney writers will…

Remedios Caseros de Mama

So, my mom is that type of mexican mom that likes to try the remedios caseros that she sees on a facebook page she liked.
