Spiritual Switchup

     About two years ago, I took a class at UTEP called Major World Religions where, as the title suggests, we explored the different religions people practice all over the world. One of the requirements of the class was to visit two religious services other than that of our own. Mine being Catholic by default/experience, I chose to go to a Jewish and Buddhist service and found I was especially glad I chose the Buddhist one. I love the teaching of the Buddha, but was unsure about what to expect…See More

Invest in Knowledge, Invest in You: Go to School!

     Ben Franklin once said "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." In today's competitive work environment, that is definitely true; according to an article in the New York Times called "The Class of 2012," graduates with degrees were more likely to land the jobs they apply for, with only "8.5 percent, on average, in the past year — compared with 21 percent for young high school…See More

Dia de los Muertos 2012

     One of my favorite things about being Latina is the Dia de los Muertos holiday, which happens right after Halloween. After being spooked on October 31st, we are left with lots of candy and even more to celebrate. Dia de los Muertos, to me, is about just that: the celebration of life, especially the lives of those we love and admire who have passed on. Though we are sad that they are no longer with us, it is important to remember them so that at least their memories are alive and with us…See More

Looking Back, Looking Up

     They say it takes a village to raise a child and as I have grown up I have come to see that this more than just a cliche, at least for me. Because my mom was a single parent for the first eight years of my life, she had the job of making sure I was taken care of when she was home and when she wasn't. This turned out to be a great thing however because it meant I was raised by my mom, my grandma and my aunt, my own mini village of strong women who also happened to be Hispanic. Looking back…See More

Irving Schwartz Club Celebrates Hispanic Heritage

     Because there are so many different cultures and ways of life, each one shaping our world, it is important to learn about and celebrate each and every one. Even if one is not of a particular heritage it never hurts to expand the mind. In observance of Hispanic Heritage month, Latinitas put together a lesson which helped the girls express why they are proud of their culture and expand not only their minds, but their love of their heritage.     Though there was only one girl at the Irving…See More

Cherish, Teach and Stop Bullying

     The month of October is dedicated to raising awareness for bullying and how to stop it. It also happens to be Hispanic Heritage month. One might not think that heritage/culture plus bullying in the same sentence would equal anything uplifting, but just last week I came across an article on Yahoo! about a case of culture-related bullying that had a happy ending that I just had to share.     According to the article, (read it…See More

Casting My First Ballot

Posted on November 11, 2012 at 11:21pm 0 Comments

     On October 31, 2012 I voted for the very first time. I was so excited I chose to do it the long way, though I technically cast a straight ballot; I even saved the neat little sticker with the Presidential seal and the year on it. I knew that the fact that I was able to vote at all was thanks to brave women, who just under a century ago fought with everything they had for the right, as well as men and women who fought for minorities to be able to vote as well. People in other countries…

"Special Elections" at Irving Schwartz

Posted on November 11, 2012 at 9:07pm 0 Comments

Just in time for the country's election, our club at Irving Schwartz library learned what the process of electing a president actually means. More than ever, it is important for everyone who is eligible to vote, regardless of their political beliefs cast their ballots and make their constitutionally given voices heard. With a more dynamic demographic, this is even more true for Latinitas young and old. To explore the importance of voting and staying on top of the issues for a given election,…
