Dear Role Model, Thank You

A message to the person you look up to.

A role model is someone who you look up to, someone you aspire to be like someday. Maybe you admire their work ethic, their outlook on life, or their passion. They mentor you through hard times and support you through the good ones. Most importantly someone who you can trust. Some of us have multiple role models, some can barely find one. No matter who your role model is, whether it is a parent, a sibling, a teacher, or a friend, etc. Thank you.

Thank you for making me the person I am today,

Maybe you knew you were doing it, maybe you didn't. On my hardest days you pushed me to be my best and somewhere along the way helped me start to become the best version of myself. I looked to you when I went through the darkest moments of my life, and I shared with you the happiest memories I had. Through the ups and downs you were the person I could turn to and best of all, I could trust you.

Thank you for being you,

Sometimes being yourself is that hardest person to be. The fact that you have shown me the type of person I can be makes me want to aspire to be better. Because of you I continue to push myself. My head no longer stops my heart, I can now follow my dreams and become something great.

Thank you for never giving up,

Because you never gave up on your dreams, I never gave up on mine. Because of your strength and passion I found motivation to do the best that I could. You pulled out my inner strength and I can't emphasize how much that means to me. Even when things got difficult for you, you never threw in the towel.

Lastly,

Thank you for teaching me how to be a role model to someone else.

Whether it is known or not, everyone is a role model for someone. We are the "cool" ones to someone out there. Everyone has someone looking up to them wanting to be just like them. One of the hardest things to learn is how to be a good role model. Even though it is forgotten sometimes, someone is watching us, don't let them down.

Thank you for being someone I can look up to and learn from. I wouldn't be who I am without you.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
