Ellen Ochoa is the first, and only, Latina astronaut to fly in space. Born in 1958, she has spent nearly 1,000 hours in space during four shuttle missions. Ochoa is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Harvard Foundation Science Award, Women in Aerospace’s Outstanding Achievement Award, and the Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award.

I have to add this woman to my lessons next week.

Foodie Fridays: Cubana-Africana Empanadas

I learned how to make empanadas in middle school with my Cubana/Dominicana Spanish instructor. I’m not Latina, so I’ve added the ‘Africana’ since my recipe is not authentic. lol I’ve always switched up the fillings, but I always make the dough by hand. This recipe takes about an hour to prepare and twenty minutes to bake. Have one of your favorite albums ready to play when you begin.

Do not read further if you care about calories, cholesterol, or salt. Sorry, but sometimes we have to indulge. The dough and filling can be made vegan very easily. :D

“It has been decades since womyn of color first turned feminism upside down, exposing the ’70s feminist movement as exclusive, white, and unaware of the concerns and issues of womyn of color from around the globe. Now a new generation of brilliant, outspoken womyn of color is speaking to the concerns of a new feminism, and to their place in it”— Review
So far the stories are absolutely inspiring. Halfway through and I can relate to almost every womon in this book, asian, arab, black, hispanic and mixed. 

i need to read this. i think i will get a debt card for the sole purpose of being able to buy books from the internet.

I read this book for my Cross- Cultural Women’s Perspectives class! It was really empowering and relatable
