We live in a country that the ideal model look usually is a Heidi Klum look alike. Most of us look nothing like that and there is nothing wrong with that. We come in many shapes and sizes and I think thats incredibly beautiful. As Latinas most of us are full figured and curvy and for some of us it hard to accept that when we're bombarded everywhere on social media with girls that look nothing like us. I know I had a hard time accepting…Continue

The pope just finished his US tour on the city of Philadelphia and during his visit he talked about several topics that population nowadays is concerned about. And one of the trending ones in social networks was the migration issue.
Millions of people a year cross the border to the US to find better opportunities for them and their families. According to an article from The Wall Street Journal from this past Thursday, it stated: “the pope urged lawmakers to take action to protect the…Continue

In today's society I think it's very easy to get caught up in their image of what beauty is and what's acceptable versus what isn't. It was never really an issue for me until I got to be around 15-16. That's the age where I really become self conscious about what I wore, how I looked, and what others thought of me. It's difficult being a girl and growing up having others tell you how you should look, especially in high school because there are the beautiful…Continue

We all know that this week Pope Francis visited our country and something that took everyone's eyes was Sophie Cruz, the hispanic little girl that stop Pope Francis caravan so that she could give him a letter. She is the daughter of two undocumented immigrants made the impossible to reach pope's caravan. I think that our new generations are doing what we were supposed to be doing. They are thinking for their own…Continue

I personally think Pope Francis is the coolest guy there is. Without a doubt. He has helped people all over the world fight different issues and find a happy ending of their own!

And even if we sometimes take things for granted, I think that sometimes we…Continue

Now with what Donald Trump has been saying, Latinos have been raising their voice defending Mexicans. Many have shared their opinion about what has been happening; through the press and social media. But what caught my eye today is a song called “We’re all Mexicans” featuring many Latino celebrities; Talia, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Juan Luis Guerra, and even the pope! The song talks about how all the nations are uniting, we’re all Mexican; instead of being used as an insult, as this man…Continue

Growing up is hard and sometimes not what you thought it would be.
Something that I've noticed not only for myself but others close to me is that your friends do change. You say that it's never going to happen between you and your friends, that you'll never grow part, but sometimes you do. It may seem like the end of the world at that time but trust me it'll be okay.
I grew up with the same group of friends from second grade through eighth grade. Freshman year of high school,…Continue

Today is International Alzheimer's Day and I want to talk about this disorder. It is a disorder that causes people to loose their memory, in some cases it takes time and in other cases it can be a short lapse of time.
What makes me worry is that in the United States our Latino community is the population with a lot of cases of Alzheimer and…Continue

Whats the difference between street art and graffiti? For me graffiti is basic tagging has no meaning to it other than to vandalize. Now street art is making an ordinary street wall into a beautiful canvas for artists to let their imagination flow. Street art is art that really makes you think but isn't always on a a street wall.
A street artist…Continue

If you’re not in college yet, you should be preparing for the most amazing and frustrating time of your life, you’ll be choosing your life path and will get to know a lot of people. But there are some things that no one tells you about this experience.
What I’ve seen so far it’s that nothing is what you see in college movies; a lot of partying, boys, alcohol, no studying… yeah it happens a lot but it’s not the most important thing there; most of the people I’ve seen are…Continue

Being a Latina today is not as bad as it was decades ago. But taking into consideration all of the advancements in society has gone through you would expect for society to treat us, Latinas, in a more humane way.
I am proud of being Latina, it makes me happy and I am proud where I come from, but I am tired of all the issues we, as Latino(a)s have to face in our everyday lives.
-When you don't speak English because you were raised in a Hispanic…Continue

It is always a great and fun experience taking part in the Latinitas Summer Camps. I started as an intern who stayed for the summer to help out with the summer camps. Little did I know that that next summer I would be trusted with the responsibility to lead the summer camp. The opportunity really excited me. I absolutely enjoy being with the girls and at the same time help in setting up awesome field trips and filling their days with inspiring guest speakers as…Continue
