I’ve been recently lamenting the fact that my knowledge of coding is limited to a “basics of computer information systems” class I took in high school. Though much of my life doesn’t require me to be versed in HTML, I have begun encountering more and more situations in which it would be helpful. Take for example, my job as an editorial intern here at Latinitas. When submitting articles to the online magazine, there is a disconnect between the way a file is viewed when uploaded by…Continue
We use popular phrases often without a second thought. We say things like, "that's cool," "that's sick," "that's retarded," "that's lame" or "that's so gay." Most of the time there's nothing wrong with using popular phrases to express ourselves. However, when we use phrases like "that's retarded," "that's lame," or "that's so gay” to call something dumb, undesirable or uncool we are really saying a lot more than we realize.
Most of us don't mean to, but when we use these terms we are…Continue

Planning Today for a Brighter Tomorrow
March 5, 2013
I personally believe, that how we see life, and what attitude we have towards every day events, is ultimately what we will get out of life.
Conversely, I am aware of those certain situations that can be seen as nothing more than what they really are. However, although we are imperfect creatures in an imperfect world, I do believe we can make daily efforts to improve, not only…Continue

I am an only child and all of my friends have brothers or sisters. Whenever my friends come over they are always amazed at how quiet and peaceful my house is. They are always telling me that their houses are never peaceful. They claim that their brothers and sisters are always running around and fighting with each other. As weird as it sounds, I wish I had that. I love taking care of kids and I have a lot of patience with them.
I do not know if my patience was created due to…Continue

Fashion trends are fluid. They change every season as soon as the fashion industry decides what's in and out.

So I’m all for Latinos knowing how to speak Spanish. In fact, I often encourage my younger primos to take Spanish in high school, and I advise students at my job (I work at the University of Central Florida) to take up Spanish as a minor.
But here’s the reality: Not all Latinos speak Spanish.
That’s why I take issue with people, of all races, who think that a Vasquez, Rodriquez or Lopez somehow equates to a Spanish speaker.
Although I’m 100…Continue
"Why are you a feminist? There's no need for feminists anymore."
I have heard and responded to this question more times than I can remember. There are so, so many reasons to be a feminist, and these reasons do not just have to do with a vague desier to show solidarity with "some group of women" in "some foreign country" who are oppressed. There are reasons for modern Americans to be feminists - lots of reasons. One major reason has to do with how we are portrayed in…Continue
