She quotes Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." We agree! She brings that change every day not only as a well prepared teacher, but also as a Special Needs Specialist. She brings her expertise, professionalism, and dedication every day to educate her students. That's why she is an #IconicChica!

Jealousy at its Finest Jealousy, a very ugly thing to feel, portray, possess in general, yet we all deal with it. Some say it heads more towards the woman standard rather than men. It depends on who you are and what you feel, really. This unattractive feeling leads only to negative side effects. Therefore, why must we feel such an undesirable feeling? How can we replace it with something positive we would enjoy? It’s difficult. In reality, jealousy does come from a desire we’ve grown to love. It can be dealing with a sibling, a relative, an article of clothing, or the common lover. Let me give you an example, a boy and a girl like each other very much, to the point where they start dating. As every normal couple, each has friends. What happens if one of those friends from that boy or girl becomes a problem? What will the other do or say? Is there really a predictive outcome, or at least the “right” thing to do? Apparently, each handles it differently. The girl may whine, complain, or stay silent. The boy may toughen up, create commotion, or also stay silent. As the story shows, everyone becomes jealous from a simple human. This human, a member of the couple becomes jealous with, should really be the least of their worries. Jealousy, in all and to all is a major problem. One that should be ignored, dealt with the simplest of cases and literally walked over. It is an ugly thing to have inside you, that “little green monster”.
Escorted to an elevator - one that was decked out with colorful chalk writing predicting a good night was about to commence - I checked in and walked into a room filled with powerful women. Greeted by gentlemen holding up two trays of wine, I opted for a glass of red and took a lap around the room. Females of all backgrounds were experiencing makeovers by talented artists, conversing with one another and sharing their Power Move. There was no doubt in my mind that the working women of this generation have not only evovolved, but are joining forces to help one another. Makeovers and free headshots were followed by a Q&A session of female leaders. A panel of powerful women answered questions on how to improve your career while still feeling and looking the part.
A woman's image should not have to suffer while on the move for a powerful career.
I got to know more of Irma Martinez. A highly distinguished and respected Latina celebrity stylist in the US Hispanic and Latin American markets. Martinez, from Colombia revealed her first big celebrity name was Shakira. As a leader and successful woman, she shared confidence tips and inspiration to help you Make a Power Move.
Who’s behind it all? Levo, the "largest and fastest-growing professional network for millennials in the workplace." They have partnered with Pantene, Olay and COVERGIRL to launch Make a Power Move. Their motto? "To inspire you to take charge of your career ambitions."

No one ever said college would be easy. But no one said it would be this hard! If they did, I probably wasn't listening or I just knew I could do it. "High school will prepare for you for college," they said. Now I wish I would have had more fun in high school! "College prepares you for the real world," they said. I'm sure many can agree on what a big lie that is. Though I must admit what I learned and the few relationships I built did have an effect on me and did contribute to my self awareness and how I live today, in a positive way.
Here's what "they" don't tell you:
•You will probably fail a few classes
•You will feel as if you're letting everyone down
•You'll find yourself blaming yourself for the inevitable, i.e. bombing exams-ones you probably walked into feeling extremely confident- and dropping out of classes because it's an overload of shit and you're up to your eyeballs on it all.
•You will have a lot of roommates.
•You will always be lost on campus and everyone else is as lost as you are. You're all just trying to disguise it, which if you look at from the outside it's actually pretty funny.
•You will break out (pimples and all!).
•You're weight will probably fluctuate, but hey at least it's consistent.
•You will look at other people and think how are they doing it. They are wondering the same thing!
•You will make mistakes, get up and probably make more.
•You will learn from your mistakes and realize it's a learning process.
•You will look back and say, I fucking did it!
Because you will! We all have our pace. It's okay to fall. You will get up and try, try, again. You will succeed, especially after you "fail".
