THANKS!

Hey everyone, today is my last day as a Latinitas intern! It's been a pleasure creating content for you! I really hope my posts have been interesting for you. I tried to vary my topics to keep you interested! Latinitas has been a great experience for me. I'm graduating college with a degree in journalism. I've been reporting for a couple of years now. This was my first internship, though. I learned about being a self-starter and pacing myself according to my schedule. This was my toughest…See More

Online Gratitude

Social media goes a long way, and one never knows which way is better. In some cases, the online world has made people easier targets for bullying.However, there are also very good people out there who create supportive systems online. I was browsing through my news feed on Facebook and I noticed that a lot of my friends shared motivational pages, links, pictures, etc. I always thought of it as spam, taking over my news feed. I didn't pay much attention to it. I'm not much of a Facebook sharer,…See More

MTV: Girl Code

Tuesday night, MTV premiered a new show called "Girl Code." It focuses on, yes you guessed it, a girl code that women should follow. Yeah, I know. You've heard about a guys code, right? Something about bros before women and other dumb stuff. Well, I guess MTV thought women needed the similar rules within their gender. The show consisted of female commentators, comedians and celebrities. There's a lot of snarky commentary, but it has potential with its underlying important themes. The first…See More

Boston is my reminder.

I was sitting in class Monday afternoon when my phone received several alerts from my CNN app. Two hours later, I was sitting in my friend's living room, watching the live coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings. We just sat there, wondering what was happening and mad at the world at the same time for being such a horrible place. My heart goes out to all those affected by Monday's tragedy. Like most people, I was angry and upset that this happened. I couldn't believe an attack like this had…See More

"Yes, when I decided to attend school in the east coast, 2 of my brothers placed bets to see how long I would last out here. Thankfully, I still managed to come here after my decesion to attend a community college for basics and with with the support…"

My graduation isn't only changing my life.

It's a month until classes are over and two more weeks after that until I walk across that stage. The closer my graduation gets, the more scared I get about "entering the real world." I've already started looking for jobs and trying to settle down in Austin. I knew I wanted to stay here after graduation, but I don't think my family understood quite well until now. I spoke to my mom yesterday and I mentioned my post graduation plans. She responded with, "Well, I'm moving back to Mexico since you…See More

My niece.

My brother started having kids at an early age. Him and his long time girlfriend started a family so soon, I was an aunt by the time I was 8 years old. He is 36 years old now and he has eight children. I grew up with three brothers, so I can only imagine having seven siblings - five sisters and two brothers. My first niece was born into a family willing to spoil the heck out of her. From the start, she was the center of attention. A little too much center of attention, if you'd ask 8-year-old…See More

Disney

I didn't grow up with Disney movies. The times I remember seeing Disney films was during recess on a rainy day. Obviously, I know about them now, along with the subtle racism within the films. I've noticed how minorities are often portrayed with comedic stereotypes. What is supposed to be funny and subtle is the oppression minorities have faced throughout history, when listened or watched closely.Disney ClassicsBuzzfeed published …See More

Last class day

It is May 2 and it is officially my last class day!! 

I can't believe this is the last time, as an undergraduate, that I'll have class! Of course, Thursday is one of my busiest days! I'm on campus from 9:30-5pm, long day. I did have an exam this morning, but I think I passed it. I'm just glad that this semester is over with. I had way too much on my plate. I was so stressed most of the semester. 

I'm practically done with college and it's scary! I facing the world as a…

Every time May comes around, I always get a little nostalgic.

My dad's birth date is May 6, 1950. He passed away May 31, 2006. He was only 56 years old. 

In November 2005, my dad suffered a stroke at work. I remember that day so well. It was a friend's birthday party and my family refused to tell me what was happening, so as long as I would still go to that party. I felt really guilty for doing so, but that's what my family told me to do. 

When I got home from school…
