Gender and Women's Studies Film Series Event' one

The Gender and Women's Studies Film "Made in LA" It showed remarkable stories of women who are undocumented in the United States and work their way up in Sunny Southern California. It makes me think of how Youth Development helps immigrant parents and their children move forward in life because of public schools and after school programs.

In the film "Made in LA", it showed the story of three women hoping to find change in their life's by doing campaigns and protesting for the right of Latin workers. They protest to raise the amount of money that they get paid for what they do in garment sweatshops.

Therefore when they see their life's and how they are able to change it by taking on jobs with no options, it makes them work hard so that their kids have a better life than they did in the past. This is why that as Youth Workers, we strive for the best in every student no matter the circumstances because as one, we strive for students to move forward and accomplish their goals in life no matter where they come from or what they go through in life.

Watching the Resilience video reminded me of why I decided to join the Youth Development program. Looking back, although school is about learning, it is also about helping kids move forward and creating an open space that will lead them to explore, create and expand their way of thinking. 

                                                      When I think of school, I think of the word "Routine" why? because to students school means waking up in the morning and going to this building that we called school. A place where you sit in a desk, receive homework and receive quizzes and exams. But to myself, who learns everyday more about the Youth Development field, it is more than just a routine, which is what a Youth worker is all about. In a way that it is going to create different programs and ways to involve the younger generation to not only have their voices be heard, but to also bring the best in them, lead them into the right direction for the future and be a guidance for them, which is what it means to me and what I look forward to.

My three questions in regards to this debate
      1. 1.     What made Democrats decide on Hilary Clinton as our next president?
        2.     What made Republicans decide on Donald Trump as our next president?
        3.     Is third party still relevant? 
With elections coming up on November 8th, I spoke to a few people about the debates that have been on air. It seems clear to me that these two candidates (shown above) who are running for president are not in good terms with America. I myself am not big on politics, but I do involve a big chunk of my life on social media. This is where I get to hear most of what goes on around the world and the country, not so much on TV though. Because I get to vote this year, for the next president of United States, I know that since I am living in the smallest state of the country, my vote matters, but not as much as if it were to count in a different state such as Florida. Not that no vote matters, because every valet counts, but because I know little of these two presidents, except for the fact that Clinton had an issue with a few emails that were deleted and other illegal stuff, while Trump said inappropriate stuff which were turn to memes, had a small loan of $1 million dollars from his father and had a show back in 2004 on NBC10 called "The Apprentice". I'm not sure.

At one point I thought about voting for the guy running in third

 place "Gary Johnson", but he's too funny and this 

                                                                       I just don't know.
