The point of the Always Live #LikeAGirl program is to show our girls what they can achieve in their world by helping them stay confident. Always and Walmart are encouraging girls to stay in sports and to persevere through failure—both of which are key confidence boosters. To make this possible, Always and Walmart are working to #EndPeriodPoverty.
A girl’s puberty is a very big time in her life. It can literally make or break an event or situation. Although this is a big moment in their life, most girls go through a lot because of all the new things they are experiencing. One of the things that a young girl experiences with the coming of puberty is the beginning of a lack of confidence. When it came to my two daughters this was something they dealt with as well.
Sharing the Lessons I Learned While Becoming a Caregiver
This post is made possible with support from AARP’s Disrupt Aging. All opinions are my own. I grew up helping my Mom care for my Grandparents, it was always something that just came natural. As I grew older I continued to do it and never thought that it was something out of the ordinary. It’s just what you do for Family, for your Parents, for your Grandparents. There was never a manual, a timeline, a list of expectations from both parties; age and caring just went hand-in-hand as time went on. Being raised in a Hispanic home and within the Hispanic culture, it’s expected to care for our elderly and our ill Family members. As time goes on the children become the caregivers and I am happy to be Sharing the Lessons I Learned While Becoming a Caregiver.

Did You Know WE Can Make New York a Tobacco Free State?
I can remember growing up going with my Stepfather to the liquor store to buy his cigarettes, the truth is; sometimes he would even send me to buy them for him. The walls outside of the liquor stores and grocery stores for that matter, were covered in advertisements from cigarette companies. As a Mom of little ones, it is upsetting to drive through some neighborhoods and see the same horrible view, the walls plastered with tobacco advertisements. Why must our kids be subjected to this for a daily view, other than to entice them? There might be a solution, Did You Know WE Can Make New York a Tobacco Free State?
I was invited to attend an event in March on a subject that many don’t know much about. Endometriosis. I was diagnosed with endometriosis many years ago and never spoke to a Doctor about it since. I have lived with the symptoms I had and figured that was the way the rest of my life should be. Boy was I wrong! Endometriosis is NOT something that we just have to deal with!
During the event I had a great time listening to a panel of Women speak about their experiences and educate us on a world that many don’t know exist. Living A Livable Life with Endometriosis.
Protecting Little Lungs From RSV #RSVAwarenessMonth
When my oldest son was a baby, I was one of those panicked new moms that worried about every little, tiny thing. The baby hasn’t pooped in the past hour, maybe he is constipated or what if it’s something worse? The baby sneezed twice, oh no, he’s sick, should I take him to the ER? Yes, I was that bad! I wish I knew how us Parents can learn about Protecting Little Lungs From RSV #RSVAwarenessMonth.

I am known for making friends with everyone, especially new neighbors. I love the feeling of a close knit neighborhood where everyone knows everyone else and it’s almost like a big family. So a few months ago, when an older couple moved in a few houses down I was the first one knocking on their door with homemade cookies, welcoming them to the neighborhood. And boy, am I glad I did!
Amwell To The Rescue #MOMSLOVEAMWELL
Hey parents, you know those days where one kid is sick but the others aren’t? The days when you want to bring
the one that isn’t feeling well to the doctor, but then you think of bringing the other children to a
doctor’s office filled with other sick kids?
You know what that means, right?
Yup, more sick kids!
And “ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Of course you can’t do nothing because that would just be wrong and it would lead to more sick
kids as well.
