Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

This is my first blog everybody and right now I just need to express my views of growing into an adult! As I'm getting older I'm starting to realize different things. I value my education more so than ever before. I feel like my life is speeding right by me and I can't even stop to look around for a second. Do you? Although this is something that happens to everybody, I begin to wish I was little again. When you're a child you have no worries, but as you get older you start to see what the world really has to offer. I graduate next year but I feel like I just started my first day of pre-school. When I look at my younger siblings I see hope, faith, and great things that the children below our generation has to offer to us when were older. On top of growing up, you have to deal with peer pressure, society's view of how women are suppose to look, back-stabbing friends, etc. But what's really going to matter 20 years from now when you're settled down with your family? Over the course of your life you will see who your true friends are and realize you will find someone who will see your beauty from within you. As teenagers we seem to forget that it doesn't matter what you look like on the outside. Growing up really stresses me out and I'm sure other people as well, but next thing you know we're all going to be adults. Can I stop growing up now?

I feel you Destiny. Being an adult is very stressful, especially with all the responsibilities that you have. I am glad that you value your education, because that is the only way that you will succeed in life. It seems to me that even though you are having a rough time with all the growing up stuff, you are actually doing  a great job at it. It sounds to me that you are realizing what it matters the most, and that my friend is called maturity. Don't be afraid of the tomorrow, rather, work in the today and you see how things will be easier. Keep up the good work and don't lose sight of what is important to you. Good Luck :)
