Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis

For the first time in fourteen years the state of Texas will experience a transfer of power in the Governor’s office. Senator Wendy Davis is currently the democratic candidate vying for the Office of Governor. If elected, Senator Davis would be the first democratic Governor of Texas since Ann Richards, 20 years ago. I consider myself to be a moderate `voter with very little interest in claiming a particular party. I support candidates based on their principles, and how their policies will directly benefit the greater good.

Colombia es Más Que Coca, Marijuana, y Café

Sunset in Cartagena Colombia

Sunset in Cartagena, Colombia

No hace falta el chiste colombiano en cada reunión o fiesta, especialmente después de algunos tragos. ¿Si saben el chiste colombiano? ¿No? Pues el mismo de siempre. El calificativo colombiano de traqueto, mulero, o consumidor. El chiste de la cocaína. El chiste no hizo falta en la fiesta patrocinada por los del segundo año en Bush School. Ya estoy aclimatado al chistecito, pero si me gustaría que la gente supiera algo mas allá del estereotipo.

What American Education Brings to Me

"The Day the Wall Came Down"

I am an old second-year student. I was supposed to graduate this May. But I decided to take a year off after finishing my first year and started to work since then. I came back to school recently. I was informed by the director of my program that Bush School has grown a lot. One of my favorite professors even emailed me and said that her class has over 30 students registered this semester, the number was 18 in 2010. I am very proud of my school and such feeling pushes me to write this article about my thoughts of American education.
