I'm a Chica Poderosa Because...

I'm a chica poderosa because I have found myself free and so motivated to do more things on my own. I have learned that moving away from my hometown is not so scary as I thought it also made me discover myself more and what I'm capable of reaching. I miss my family but to be honest, I'm really happy and excited about my decision. Is not that now that I'm on my own I can do whatever I want but I feel that sometimes…

March 7th: I AM A CHICA PODEROSA!

Image result for what is a chica poderosa I am a chica poderosa because I do not let anyone tell me what I should or should not do with my life. Stereotypes are held up against us Latina women and I think it is important to not believe in the stereotypes, such as Latinas being housewives, Latinas being caretakers, or Latinas being submissive women. I want to steer away from the stereotypes brought upon our society about Latina women. 

I am not going to let anyone tell me not to pursue a degree in Social Work just…

Blog-a-thon Day 1

Tell us what you're doing to help future generations of Latinas succeed! Whether you're a first generation college student setting a standard for siblings or volunteering in your community. Show us what you contribute.

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…

Why I'm proud to be a latina

By Jesslynn C.

Brooke Elementary



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

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

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…

Hello my dear Latinitas,



I just stopped by to say hello and to tell you all how much I miss you. I'm currently living in San Antonio and has been a unique experience so far. The first thing that I want to mention is that my English has improved...that's for sure. Where I work, I'm the only fluent…

Butterfly Collage

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…

Animal Shapes

The girls in the after school clubs had an introduction lesson on computer science. Computer science is telling the computer what to do and how to do it. In order to communicate to the computer, one must know the language that the computer understands, just like we speak English and understand each other because we all speak the same…

However, sometimes we take advantage of these friendships by being rude to one another. During Valentine's Week, the girls got to brainstorm what a good friend is and what a bad friend is. A good…

About Me

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…
