TEACHER, AUTHOR, EDUblogger "I want to (read and) write books that unblock the traffic jam in everyone's mind." ~J. Updike
I really love this music video! And no, it’s not because this music artist shares my last name! 🙂 We all know that “Diaz” is as common as the Anglo name of “Smith.” It is because this video speaks in a wonderful way to the self induced, media enhanced, and societal pressure, that our young women and ladies have to swim through while in search of their own self identity and purpose in this crazy world.
A mother and daughter assisted in the making of this video, and in a post interview they told of how, not only the song, but the story behind the video, spoke volumes into their own personal lives and open their eyes in unexpected ways.
Watch it and let me know what your take is on this.
Happy viewing! 🙂

I am an Educator, Award Winning Christian Author, Freelance Writer & Blogger,Youth mentor, Bible Teacher, and TREK AWANA director. Teaching provides an opportunity for me to engage in continual learning and growth on many levels. I work for my students not only to master the course material but to give them the indispensable advantage of having a growth mindset. This mindset has been stripped from many of our students; yet this is the undisputed secret ingredient for their success in the world outside of my classroom. I strive to be a globally connected educator. With my #LatinoEd #Edublog I seek (as J. Updike says) "to unblock the traffic jam" in the minds of my students and peers. In this way, long after they have left my classroom and they encounter a world that will try (and many times succeed) in knocking them down and telling them they "can't," they will bounce right back up, and with an intrinsic confidence say, "Watch me. Watch me make a difference!" It is then I will feel that I too have made a difference.
