Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

I have to say that throughout history and my personal life there are many women who have done great things. Women have achieved many great accomplishments, such as voting rights. I find that women can be very strong and hardworking. A woman that I feel admiration for is a lady from my work. I work at the front counter at some cleaners and she works in the back, cleaning the clothes. I am not sure her age, but I would have to say she is between 60 and 65 years of age. I see how hard she works daily and somehow maintains that energy. She works at least 12 hours a day. Of course she gets an off day and all, but the days that she works she works for the entire day. Every Saturday she comes in at four in the morning! and leaves until seven at night. And throughout the day she is not complaining about being tired. Its surprising to say that us young people are often complaining about being tired and about work, when she is daily working almost the entire day. It seems though that to her her job is not just a job. She actually wants to go in and do things right. She goes in that early to get ahead with the cleaning and that is what I admire because not everybody would do that. In fact, its most probable that no one does that. Most of us just want to go in exaclty at the time were supposed to and leave at the time were supposed to, but she actually goes in earlier and stays later. I also admire that she has four sons and that on her own she has encouraged them to go to college and to pursue their studies. They are all grown and are successfully employed. I really admire that even though her job may not be the most highly paying job, she still does it with pleasure and she doesn't complain in any way about it.
