Latinitas celebrated Women’s History Month by hosting a blog-a-thon. Members of the MyLatinitas.com community shared who they admired and why:

I will be honest. I am not a big sports fan. But if there is one revolutionary Latina that just has to be mentioned in sports, that has to be Rebecca Lobo. If you are a basketball fan, you might now that Rebecca was part of the 1996 Olympic women’s “Dream Team,” but let me tell you a little more about her.

Born in Hartford, CT, Rebecca was around basketball at a young age. Her career highlights include awards such as the NCAA Women’s Basketball Player of the Year (1995) and the ESPY Award for Outstanding Female Athlete in 1995. She won these awards and many more at a time where women in sports was something taboo, and extremely unheard of.

While she is currently playing for the Houston Comets, her career as a professional basketball player began after her graduation from the University of Connecticut with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science in 1995.

Rebecca’s star status grew when she started playing college basketball and was one of the women who showed America and the world that WOMEN PLAY SPORTS!” – Ingrid

Selena Quintanilla is my inspiration because she was an amazing Latina singer. She set a good reputation for herself also, she inspired so many young Latina girl.” – Alizae

Today I met Josefina Vazquez Mota, one of Mexico’s first female presidential candidates. She ran for the 2012 presidential elections. I remember I was in Thailand at the time and wasn’t able to vote for her but was hugely concerned over whether she would win. In the end, she wasn’t elected, but was still hugely recognized. Today, in New York City, she presented her book on the success stories of Mexicans in the US, titled “El sueño que unió la frontera.

Josefina is a Latina like you and I. She was born in Mexico but believes in the power of Latinos, not only in the US, but in Latin America as well. Here or there we’re all bound to fight for a cause, she expressed.

 I grew up believing I needed to belong somewhere. One place, only one. I was born in Brownsville, Texas (as I have probably mentioned a million times) and would drive to Mexico every other weekend. With time, I realized that I loved both places, but I also knew they weren’t very similar, and this caused a feeling of contradiction within me” – Giselle

 

Leading Latina: Christina Garcia

Immigration reform is a pressing political issue in the United States as people from around the world cross borders to find better opportunities for themselves and their families.  A Latina making an impact to help immigrants is Christina Garica. Christina Garcia is the Program Coordinator for the Battered Immigrant Women department at Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center in El Paso, Texas. That’s a long title for a crucial job.

Garcia’s Contribution to Her Community

In her own words, Garcia “takes care of people who are victims of crimes and domestic abuse.” She does this by connecting clients to the visas they need to stay safe.

The first is a Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Visa which protects women who are married to United States citizens and suffer from domestic violence. The Violence Against Women Act, which was first passed in 1994, created a number of laws that politicians hoped would help prevent violence against women and provide better support for women who had experienced violence. Legislators at the time realized that many non-citizen and undocumented people, mostly women, experiencing domestic violence were not reporting the abuse to the police for fear of losing their immigration status and being deported. The VAWA Visa encourages immigrant women to report domestic abuse by giving them access to legal residence that doesn’t depend on their relationship to an abusive partner.

The second type of visa is a U-Visa. A U-Visa allows undocumented people who are the victims of crimes and have cooperated with the authorities to attain legal permanent residence. The U-Visa encourages people to report crimes without fear of deportation. “These issue are right at the center of human rights,” says Garcia.

When asked what she wanted young Latinas to know about domestic violence and the immigrant community she had a lot of wisdom to share.

“I think people tend to view immigration as an isolated issue that only a few people experience, when in reality immigration is this universal issue that happens all over the world. If you sit 10 people down in a room at least half of those people know an immigrant,” she said.

For Garcia, acknowledging that immigrants make up an important portion of our communities means that “when we confront violence against women we can’t focus only on women who are citizens or who have papers.”

She wants Latinas to be aware that, “it doesn’t matter what immigration status you have, if you are the victim of a crime or the victim of domestic violence, or if someone is pushing you to do something that you don’t want to, than it’s important to know that this isn’t right and that there is something that you can do about it. If it isn’t happening to you, it might be happening to someone you know, or it might happen to someone you’ll meet in the future.”

She took a breath before leaning forward and emphasizing that, “it is important to know that there are people who can help and you don’t need to have hundreds of thousands of dollars to get the assistance that you need.”

Garcia’s last comment points to the importance of organizations like Las Americas. Immigration law is complicated. Cases take a long time and require lots of complex paperwork to be filled out correctly, efficiently, and then sent to the right government office. Very few people could get all of that done without legal assistance from an attorney or someone professionally trained in immigration law. Unfortunately, hiring a lawyer can be extremely expensive (not to mention the money the government charges you just to turn in you paperwork!) and many of the people who qualify for VAWA or U-visas are low income. So Garcia and the other wonderful ladies of Las Americas work to provide immigrants with quality legal care at low cost. For Garcia it all comes down to giving back.

“As a Latina and a low-income person who had the opportunity to be educated, I think it’s kind of an obligation to give back to your community at some point in your career. I think I’ve been blessed to be able to do that here. It would be so cool if everybody thought like that,” she said.

Latinas Find Voice, Identity in Art

girls3The future art majors of the world are about to hit the homestretch of their high school careers. Already, art hopefuls are awaiting art school response letters and anticipating the hardships of futures as professional artists. Despite all the stress and uncertainty, young creatives remain as passionate as ever.

Gabby Desporte, a high school senior at McCallum Fine Arts Academy (MFAA), says that she can remember always loving to draw, but it wasn’t until middle school that drawing became something more than just an activity she liked to do. “When I heard about McCallum, that’s when I was like, alright, I want to make some kind of career out of this,” Desporte said. MFAA is located in Austin, Texas and appeals to students wanting to hone and challenge their skills in the fine arts. There is an application process which includes portfolios, auditions, and teacher recommendations. If chosen, students must be prepared to dedicate four years to the program. “I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up,” Desporte said, “but I knew that I wanted to do some kind of art, so I immersed myself.”

Since then, Desporte has been attempting to figure out which careers will allow her to infuse art with a more financially secure profession. College has always been in the equation, she says, and though her parents have always been supportive, they’ve also wanted her to keep her goals feasible. Currently, she’s considering pursuing a degree in advertising.

Maya Medrano, also a senior at MFAA, finds herself in a similar position. Like Desporte, she has been drawing since she was very young. Art has since weaved itself into her every-day life. “I’ll be doing something and then all of a sudden, oh look, there’s a sketch,” Medrano said. “Recently the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do before I go to bed is sketch in my sketchbook. Sometimes I just wish the world could pause so I could get all these ideas out,” Medrano said.

Combining her love of drawing and storytelling, Medrano’s ideal situation is to build a career in comics. However, she’s already prepping herself for the obstacles she may meet in the professional art world. “I’ve met with a lot of comic book artists,” she said. “An alumni from one of the colleges I’m applying to was saying, ‘If I had to go back, I would definitely take a major in something broader.’” The advice has pushed Medrano to change her focus from sequential art to illustration which she hopes will broaden her freelancing opportunities.

Beyond the concerns of careers, art has remained a helpful and essential element in both young artists’ lives, allowing them to examine their surroundings and even themselves through the lens of art. This includes how their Hispanic heritage influences or, in some cases, does not influence, their work.

Desporte is currently working on a project detailing street life in Latino communities, specifically the cholo community. Because her subject is a traditionally marginalized and stigmatized group of people, she says that the images sometimes come across as intense to outsiders. She hopes that her project will showcase something deeper. “They are human too,” she emphasizes. “There’s still going to be those sweet candid moments. They actually are approachable people.”

Medrano, on the other hand, has found herself being less influenced by Latino culture and admits to feeling like she is awkwardly stuck between her Mexican heritage and her American upbringing. Instead, her largest influences came from Japanese manga and anime, superhero cartoons, and horror films. And yet, her experiences through art have been more introspectively enlightening. “Without art, I definitely think I would be more lost and would not have figured out as much about myself,” she said. “I actually think that art is just my default way of life. Art is the same thing as having brown skin.”

Desporte agrees. Art is a way of life.

While both artists admit to feeling worried about the future and about the career path they will soon be pursuing, they also carry with them the understanding that art is just part of their genetic code. “You wake up in the morning and you understand that art is what you do,” Desporte says. “You encapsulate yourself in it. It just becomes a part of you.”

Latinas and the Pulitzer Prize

pulitzer_logoThe Pulitzer Prize is the  most esteemed award in journalism, literature and art. The ultimate medal at the end of a successful race every journalist aspires to receive. This prize not only represents an incredible journey, but also the talent and dedication put into their career. Administered by Columbia University, the Pulitzer board is made up of 19 of the best leading journalists and executives from across the country. For a very long time now, Latinos have been making their names known through-out America bringing about a change in the world of communications. Although they make up a part of the minority in the country, a small group can make a difference in society.

Miami Herald Executive Editor Aminda Marques and playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes are the two leading Latinas that have been selected to join the board in recent years.

Aminda Marques

Marques, 49,  graduated from Hialeah High and the University of Florida. She began her journalism career 25 years ago at The Miami Herald where she interned covering community news.  Now, she oversees The Herald’s newsroom for print and online content. She left the Miami Herald for some time to lead People’s Magazine Miami bureau, but returned to The Herald in 2007 as a multimedia and features editor where she helped launch Miami.com, and redesigned the tropical life section. In addition, she later was named Executive Editor in November 2010; making her the second woman and the first Hispanic to hold the position. Once she was back in the office, Marques was assigned the lead coverage of the Haiti earthquake and was named a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2011.

Quiara Alegria Hudes

Born to a Jewish father and a Puerto Rican mother, Quiara was raised in West Philadelphia where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music Composition at Yale, and playwriting at Brown University. Some of her most notable productions are Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue, Water by the Spoonful, and The Happiest Song Plays Last. In 2007, Elliot was a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and has been performed around the country, Romania, and Brazil. After its premiere at the Hartford Stage Company, her play Water by the Spoonful, sequel to Elliot, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2012. Her latest production The Happiest Song Plays Last opened in the Goodman Theatre in Chicago earlier in this year, which completed the last piece of the trilogy. She is also the second woman and first Hispanic to be introduced into the Central High School’s Alumni Hall Of Fame – her former high school.

Latinas have a powerful force in the department of journalism and the arts. The number of Latinos getting involved in the media is notably increasing and it is proof that anybody that has a vision for the future can succeed.

Artist Spotlight: Latina Artists

For Hispanic Heritage month, Latinitas asked interns to spotlight a Latina artist everyone should know. Alexandra and Rebecca shared their favorite Latina artist, their favorite artwork, and why you should know more about them.

onelittleindianvsthecorporatetrollslauramolinaLaura Molina is a Latina Artist born and raised in East Los Angeles. Her style of artwork is known to be influenced by the Chicano Movement of the 1960′s, and  Mexican culture. She is also heavily influenced by Frida Kahlo, another Latina artist. Through some of her pieces you can see the underlying political messages associated with the struggle of being a Latina in America. Molina attended college at the California Institute of the Arts pursing the subject of animated character art. Molina also published her own comic book called “Cihualyaomiquiz, The Jaguar”  which playfully told the story of an Aztec woman warrior who is dedicated to the empowerment of women as well as the struggle for social justice and basic human rights. In 2006 she founded a Chicano Art Magazine to help promote new up and coming Chicano artist.  I personally enjoy her art work because you are able to look at the art as a whole but if you take a closer look you can truly come to see the reason behind the art. Just looking at her art makes you think, and feel what she must have felt during that time. One of my favorite pieces is called ”One Little Indian vs The Corporate Trolls.” I feel like this painting is sending a powerful message that Latinas will continue to stand up for their rights and stand against the stereotypes we often see in the media.  - Alexandra Castillo, PR Intern

png_base64c3675afea46b589eFavianna Rodriguez’s artwork is absolutely stunning; her activism inspiring. A Latina from Oakland, California, Rodriguez’s work skillfully combines gorgeous visual art and social justice messages. Notable for a strong personal style, Rodriguez’s art is instantly recognizable as a “Favi piece”. Her use of bold and fluid lines, striking colors, and exceptional composition reflect her long experience in printmaking. A prolific artist, her work has touched on many issues including immigrant rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and food justice. I am especially a fan of her “Migration is Beautiful” series which highlights the beauty of the Monarch butterfly as a symbol for migrant rights. The project encourages people all over the country to make large wearable butterfly wings and post their pictures online in support of migrant rights. Wearing the beautifully detailed wings transforms the wearers into walking, talking, living, breathing public art pieces and political messages. The wings highlight their presence as people and make a powerful statement: “I am here. Look at me! I am priceless. I am an immigrant and I am beautiful.” The message is clear. Migration is beautiful.

When Rodriguez isn’t making art, she works as a powerful activist directing CultureStrike a national organization which connects artists of all kinds to migrant issues. She is also the co-founder of Presente.organ online nation network dedicated to empowering Latino communities.

Becoming a Media Superstar

María Elena Salinas, an inspiring role model for Latinas, has had an amazing career at the Spanish-language news station. María is a journalist from Los Angeles who has grown and developed throughout her career at Univision.

Being born and raised in California to two Mexican immigrants gives her the on-the-ground knowledge of several aspects of the Latina experience. Her hard work that has turned into successful reporting and shines light on the strength and resilience that every Latina embodies.

According to her page on Univision News’s Tumblr, Salinas “has interviewed every U.S. President since Jimmy Carter and has been face to face with dozens of Latin American heads of state, rebel leaders, and dictators.”

For entertainment, for relaxation, or for information, television channels are ready to connect with their audience. Latinos, in particular, are eager to immerse themselves into the discussion about current events.

Univision covers the news that Latinos in the United States want to know more about, and their ratings are constantly improving and breaking records.

As TV By the Numbers reports, “the Spanish-language network was the No. 1 broadcast network among Adults 18-49 on 38 nights in 2012.” Not only is Univision an option for those who would like to watch the news in Spanish, it is also grabbing the attention of coveted young viewers to watch and work behind the scenes.

Hard-hitting and professional reporting by the Univision team allows Latinos and other viewers to know that our community has a pulse–and a powerful one at that. If you are interested in pursuing a career in journalism or following in the footsteps of María, you can start immersing yourself in journalism by becoming an intern at a news station, taking back-stage tours of media stations, or even asking about shadowing opportunities.

Immerse Yourself

There are opportunities you can take a hold of to experience what goes on at their news stations. Victoria A. Perez interned at Univision’s station in El Paso, Texas. She carried out diverse tasks from answering phone calls to working with the cameras and news anchors. Her most rewarding moments included writing stories that were then broadcast on the weekend news programs.

To find out more about what internship opportunities are available, contact your local media stations or visit your school’s campus and see if they work out internship positions with students and your local Univision station.

Career Spotlight: Principal

Elizabeth Maldonado uses her experiences as a student as well as an educator in her efforts to better how children are taught in her community. Having grown up in a neighborhood that lacked resources, Elizabeth Maldonado developed a passion for teaching in low income areas, where students are often overlooked and slip through the cracks of the educational system. Elizabeth Maldonado places every effort into her work. Her efforts are inspired by the need to ensure that her students and children will grow up into a world that values the right to a fair education for everyone, no matter class, race or gender.

What is your educational background? Describe your college experience and how it helped you prepare for your career.

I had always wanted to be teacher.  For as long as I can remember, teachers have always positively influenced my life.  Thus, after graduating from Jefferson High School, I attended The University of Texas at El Paso with that goal in mind.  I don’t think I was mature enough to take college serious and frankly, it took a long time to complete my bachelors degree.  The inspiration I had to complete my degree was because I was a full time mom to two girls and I wanted to be a good role model.  After completing my degree, I returned three times to the university to earn additional certification (ESL Endorsement); Masters in Education in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students with Special Needs; and then additional certification in Educational Leadership.  I believe I am a lifelong learner and because of this, one must not remain stagnant because every new thing you learn only makes you better in your career.

 How did you find your current job?  

I would say the job finally found me.  Growing up in south central El Paso and actually attending the school where I am now the principal was not an accident, but was intentional.  As a middle school student, I promised I would return to my school and give back to my community.  For the longest time, I forgot this promise.  When I least expected it, the position for principal was open. This was at the right time in my life and when I felt I was truly ready for the challenge. So, I really think people should give back to their community once they have the ability to do so whether it be in volunteerism, resources, or mentoring, one should never forget their roots.

 What did you do to prepare for this career?

I focused on my education first and foremost, but also on my experience as a teacher.  I truly believe that a good teacher makes a good leader.  Also, I work very hard.  I am passionate about what I do and I truly love the position I am in, this is the best preparation ever.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Interacting with the students;  Middle school students are unique.  They are coming to their own at this age and are so interesting.  This is the best part of my job, just interacting with them whether it be at a game, a dance, lunch, or in the classroom, they never fail to surprise me with their antics.

What is the most challenging part of your job?  

The most challenging part of my job is the lack of resources education has in general.  When you work in a school that is unique such as mine, you must be an advocate for the students, teachers, and community.  Monetary resources are scarce and sometimes not equitably dispersed.  I find that I must really fight for the little I get because it is in a lower income area.

What advice would you give to help a girl prepare for a job like yours?

Reflect to really know that this is the type of position you want to enter.  Not only will you meet the challenges of inequity simply because of gender, but also because of race.  Although we have come a long way as Latina women, there are still many barriers to overcome.  Thus, get an education.  With education, a Latina woman can do anything.  Maintain your family relationships.  It is with their support and encouragement that you will succeed.  Learn to persevere.  Our culture is slowly undergoing a paradigm shift. In a marriage, be careful to marry or co-exist with the right partner.  The traditional Hispanic roles of the mother being the one who cooks, cleans and rears children must change if you are to have a successful career.

 What do you do for fun when you aren’t working?

When I am not working, I like to spend time with the family obviously.  But also, one must hone their own interests.  I love going to movies or watching movies and collecting key quotes from movies.  I know it’s a little strange, but I have been doing this for quite a while.  I also love spending time in the outdoors camping.  Although my idea of camping is sleeping in an RV.  I love to read.  I LOVE music and collecting music.

 

The Story of Girl Scouts

Laura Bush, Dakota Fanning, Sandra Day O’Connor, Grace Kelly, Katie Couric, Taylor Swift, Barbara Walters, and Celine Dion are all talented and highly regarded women in their fields. Their outstanding leadership is well known but, that which few people realize is that all these women have one more thing in common; each of them was once a Girl Scout. In fact, 64% percent of today’s women leaders in the United States (civic, corporate, political, etc.) were once Girl Scouts!

For more that a hundred years Girl Scouts has been providing girls in kindergarten through 12th grade with a unique opportunity and it all started with a phone call. After meeting with Englishman and Boy Scouts founder, Robert Baden-Powell, Juliette Gordon Low (Girl Scout founder) called her cousin Nina and said “I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world and we’re going to start it tonight!” On March 12, 1912 Juliette organized the first Girl Scouts of America troop in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia.

Even at a time of segregation, Juliette made sure that African-American, American Indian and Hispanic girls could be Girl Scouts. She welcomed girls “who lived in rural and urban areas, to girls who were rich, middle class and poor, and to girls who were born in this country as well as immigrants.” This value holds true today and is what allows the Girl Scout organization to foster a strong sense of community learning, since girls learn from each other’s diverse backgrounds.

A second factor that makes Girl Scouts the largest educational organization for girls in the world (Girl Scouts Heart of Hudson) is that it not only prepares girls for traditional homemaking tasks but it also teaches them how to be leaders. Girls are encouraged to explore careers in the arts, sciences and business. In addition, girls develop their physical, mental and spiritual being by partaking in fun outdoor activities such as hiking and camping.

Last year in celebrating 100 years of scouting Katie Couric explained that Girl Scout “empowers the girls of today to become the leaders of tomorrow.” Katie also spoke with girls at Parkway Northwest High School in Philadelphia and this is what they had to say about Girl Scouts: ” it makes you feel good..to do something positive” while another Cadette (4th level of GS membership) affirmed that her involvement in Girl Scouts helps her ” be strong and who I am”. Luckily, there are many ways to become a Girl Scout so if you are ready to embark on this journey contact your nearest Girl Scout Council to get involved.

Talento Latino: Haide

A television station called Estrella TV, whose headquarters are in Los Angeles, held auditions for their show called “Tengo Talento Mucho Talento.” Auditions were held across the United States and Latinitas was able to interview one of the show’s contestants, Haide. One audition was held in Austin, Texas. In the Austin audition, a young 19-year-old Latina named Haide  to the final round and will now participate in the show which will start in March.

Haide, seated between the contestant with the white cowboy hat and contestant wearing a black shirt, shared that she felt pretty confident going into the auditions. According to HAide, she knew that she had an advantage because she is musically educated. Haide previously studied opera at a university, but due to expenses she had to quit her studies. Despite not completing her studies, she is confident in what she learned while she was enrolled.

“I know I have the knowledge that the others do not have. I know how to control my vibrato and other techniques that others are not so good at,” she said.

After the auditions were over, Haide was surprised at how much Latino talent Austin, Texas holds. Fortunately, she was able to advance through three rounds of cuts and was given the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles twice –where the last two auditions were held. Others were not as fortunate as Haide, but she provided some insight for those people.

“The advice I would give to other Latino contestants would be to truly prepare themselves. Truly take the time to study their voice and be on a stage,” she said.

Advancing Through the Competition

The amount of talent in this talent show was incredibly large. Yet due to other factors that play out in reality TV, talent was not the only factor that determined whether a contestant advanced or not. Producers are actively observing which people will be able to attract more ratings. The contestants not only had to demonstrate their talent but they also had to provide a brief description of their life. In the end, contestants had to be talented and had to have compelling stories that would attract and enhance the audience’s emotions and connection with the contestant.

Although Haide was only able to advance three rounds, she says “I learned so much and I made many connections that will be very beneficial to me in the long run! I plan to continue my music career but this time dedicating more time to it to prepare better for next season.”

While there may be mixed feelings about reality TV, it is exciting to see how Spanish television is expanding. Haide is aware of the progress Latinos in the media are making.

“I think it is quite evident that Latinos are not falling behind in the media industry. We see more and more reality shows in Spanish that have been taken from English ones, and we see celebrities like Shakira transcending into the English media more and more,” she said.

Television continues to function the same way it did many years ago, it still earns its profits from commercials and its goals are still to get high ratings. But as Haide mentioned, Latino media is transcending and Spanish network TV is rising.
