EDUCATION

Nelson Mandela once said that education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. According to a new survey, nearly 89 percent of Latino young adults believe that a college education is important for success in life, yet only about half that number — a mere 48 percent — say that they themselves plan on earning a degree. Education is vital for a ensuring a successful professional life for our young Hispanic men and women across the globe.

Eva Longoria Gives Back

EDUCATION EDUCATION The award-winning actress talks family values, the power of education today, and keeping our nation’s Latino youth curious for tomorrow. "I am so proud of my heritage, my people, my culture, my family's connection to the universe of Hispanics everywhere. Every child growing up in our culture needs to see examples of our success, our pride, and feel that they belong. Prejudice has no place - although it exists and in some places is prevalent, we also know that the world is changing in our favor. Any time someone disparages us - as Mexicans, or Puerto Ricans - be aware that it is those who hate that are on the wrong side of history. I often hear stories of ridicule for our fashion - can you believe that clothing is something people mock. Or the insane claims that because we love to wear certain kinds of jewelry, like these silver rings that make a statement - I wear (because I adore them), but do we deserve ridicule or second class citizenship? If someone makes fun of something I love, I will stand up and push back. We often love loud jewelry and clothing for the same reasons that anyone else does. In fact, my statement rings actually do make a statement - and that is 'respect me' for who I am. Do not judge me for my fashion choices or the jewelry I wear, or the music or the food I love. Judge me for the strength of my character. To all those who do not share my love of Hispanic culture I say they do not realize what they are missing. To all my brothers and sisters everywhere I say, 'dream BIG and stand TALL' and never compromise our values because the only way to gain respect is to respect ones self." Education and self awareness is the key to a better future for us all!
