Interests:

The election of 2016 was a tipping point for me- for too long I have watched as Latin Americans are dragged through the mud every four years during a presidential campaign and then exploited until the next election. This has to stop if we are to be respected as a people in this country. We need to stand up to this injustice, abolish this destructive cycle of social inequality, and preserve our culture, heritage, and identity as a people.

    One down, three to go....
    It's been a little over a year since the drastic changes in administration. Yet, Latinos continue to fight. We are fully prepared to do battle for a dream that is worth dreaming.

    Pipe Dreams
    What will become of the pipeline in North Dakota? The plans have already been made, and construction implemented. This temporary break by the core of Army engineers seems to be more rhetoric than actual truth. Far be it for a small portion of the pipeline to get in the way of its advancement. The real question then becomes this- why was the designation of the pipeline not approved by the tribes in the first place?

    Cuba- A beacon of Hope
    The passing of Fidel Castro is a pivotal point in history for the people of Cuba. Although Castro was and is viewed by many as a dictator, and the people have been forced to live in a bubble as the rest of the world grew and developed around them, there are some positives that have come from it. Whether by accident or not, Castro was able to preserve many aspects that many other Latin American countries have failed to do.

    The wall was always there
    The election of 2016 will go down in history as one of the most brutal attacks on minorities since the pre-civil rights era. Whites on the news and talk shows  telling Latin and African Americans how to feel and think. Yet when we decide to speak for OURSELVES, and express our thoughts, opinions, and views it is dismissed and ignored like a child seeking the attention of adults conversing at the dinner table.

    Hit them where it hurts
    Although I agree with the protests and rallies around the country, we need to show the new president elect Trump we mean business. The fastest way to get a message across in this society is simple- hit a corporation's bottom line! There is no better time to do that than this coming Holiday Season!
