Dear Dad,

As I grow and mature, I realize the true depth and breadth of your wisdom and knowledge. You are one of the wisest and most intelligent men.

Over the twenty-one years of being your daughter, you have taught me countless life lessons. You have taught me to be truthful, fair, and to think for myself. You have taught me to be loving, caring, and humble. You have taught me to be firm, assertive, tough, and independent. In you, I see all these things and much more. I see your dedication to your family, to your work, to your faith, and to your morals and values. I see your love for your family, faith, work, and passions.

Every day I continuously strive to become more like you.

You were my first role model. Your character, personality, and influence are priceless, and because of that, you will be my biggest role model for the rest of my life.

You are my greatest mentor and my biggest source of motivation. I am honored and extremely proud to say that I am your daughter- even despite how awful your jokes can be!

For as long as I can remember, you have supported me through all my endeavors. I am forever grateful to have such a loving and supportive dad. You have always been, and continue to be, my biggest supporter and number one fan.

So, for that, I want to thank you.

Thank you for brushing my hair every night, for staying up all night with me when I am sick, for learning how to straighten and curl my hair, for supporting me at all my school events, for helping me on homework all those nights, for playing YouTube videos over and over. Thank you for loving me unconditionally.

Thank you for being the best dad.

I love you. Happy Father's Day.


Your daughter

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
