About Me

Posted by Alma Elizabeth Saenz on February 28, 2017 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Writing "about me" paragraphs has never been my strong point. There isn't a lot I can write here that hasn't been stated on my page, I think I'd do better if I had some questions I could answer. But here it goes... My name is Alma Elizabeth Saenz Prieto, I didn't know I was supposed to write both of my last names on papers until the lady who gave me my double citizenship told me that if I didn't do so I would have to go back and correct all of my documents. I was born in Chihuahua, Ch. and…

Butterfly Collage

Posted by Stephanie Puente on March 2, 2017 at 10:50am 0 Comments

The girls made butterfly collages to represent who they are by filling in the butterfly wings with magazine cutouts. The girls wrote their names on the body of the butterfly. The girls are now club members of Las Latinitas and we are all butterflies. Even though the girls are all a part of something, we are all…

March 6: What are you doing to help future generations of Latinas succeed?

Posted by Stephanie Puente on March 6, 2017 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

I help the future because every year I go to to the beach in California and help clean it up. This is what I love to do and I think it is important for us to help out our environment. 

                -Victoria 

I am helping future generations of Latinitas succeed by being the first generation college student. Both of my parents did not go to college and I am the oldest, so I plan to go to college to be the class of 2025. Also, I would probably be on of the first to graduate…

I am proud to be a Latina because my Latina teachers teach me new things. They are nice and the best teachers. I think people should be a Latina because probaly it can change your life like you can probaly be a music player even though you do not even play. You can go see a free movie sponsored by Latinitas. We're watching Hidden Figures on Friday March 24 at the Google Fiber center. Or you can even have a party. That is why you should be proud… Continue

I joined Latinitas because I think Latinxs and women in general are not fairly represented in the media. This reason is that there are not that many women and Latinas in the newsroom or as producers. I want to be inside the newsrooms I want to tell stories…

Leaving States is Like Leaving an Old Life Behind

So I moved back to my homestate. It was a bitter sweet move, as when I left CA, I left behind what I thought was my forever life.I left an SO who was madly in love with me, left his mother who was a prescription pill popper, a younger brother who dropped out of school, an older sister who happened to be addicted to meth.It's been an intense last year as I have been using the time to take care of myself. I'm off anti depressants, found lifting as a way to cope and have found friends. I survived…See More

How did your culture or language influence your identity?

Being a part of both the Hispanic and American culture has both opened many opportunities for me, but has also made my identity quite confusing. Some days I feel like I belong more to my Hispanic culture while other days I feel like I belong closer to my American culture. This has hindered my identity because at times I do not know where I belong best. I feel odd for being a dark skinned woman jamming out to country music because society expects me to like things that are most closely tied with…See More
