Being a Millennial means: using more technology ,having a higher confidence level and being more diverse

Being a millennial, goes beyond to a DOB (date of birth), it is more about how much we are being adapted to new trends and technology.


 I feel like adapting to technology has become mostly a survival skill. If we do not learn how to use technology, our capacity to communicate, increase our network and even getting a job might be in danger.

Being a millennial also means being confident and more open minded. I know our kids will be more diverse. New generations are already developing more tolerance to people and situations.

Hispanic has become the largest minority and it estimated to be about 20% of the millennial in US.



Multitasking- It is hard to be a Woman!!

  I really enjoyed the multitasking exercise that we did in our GEDI class; it helped me to realized  about the difference between mental and physical multitasking, the former does not improve our performance ( I thought it did) , and the latter is sort of automatic and mechanical ,something that  we (women) are used to do ;)

Being dyslexic does not really help me in multitasking :( ; however women are genetically programed to multitask, WAIT A MINUTE… THAT IS A WRONG STATEMENT!!  women are socially and culturally required to multitask  !


I have always complained of how the feminist revolution has backfired on us. Women, please, do not get me wrong; I do appreciate the fact that now we can vote, access to education, work outside of our homes and many more rights that we have won. 

I feel like women have increased their work load and the society expect way tooo much from us (women are mothers, wives, housekeepers ,gatekeepers, caregivers, professionals and still need to look forever fit,young and beautiful).

Women have been holding  careers and jobs in many fields as men, but women are  still being paid less than men and have increased their cardiovascular disease rate ( wonder why? lifestyle+ stress + never taking care of ourselves= heart disease and many more other diseases).



  • Multitasking is not doing good to anyone, neither at professional level and/or personal level.
  • Women have won some freedom, but still get less salary and even worst, women are still expected to perform their “female role/tasks”  at home.

Infographics: Education + Stable Job= Living Longer with a better quality of life.

I will never get tired of saying education….education….education is the key for almost everything! I am sorry if I talk to much about education and health, I just can’t help it!!!

It is important for students that plan to be professors to see the impact of their teaching in their students. Professors have many responsibilities,  but also have a social duty : creation of a better society.

According with The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, education is important not just to get a better and stable job, but also to live a longer and healthier life


It is not a surprise to see that a higher educated person has a higher salary and also a better health and quality of life, it is like a domino effect (although someone can perfectly argue that no all people with Masters or PhD degree get a good job).


What is going to happen with people with lower education and lower access to health care?.  According with The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured Report and an Urban Institute Report ;  lower income people have been dealing with a higher burden, paying with most of their resources to be able to access to health care, more info here.

Higher Education and Economy

Access to education is a global problem, in developing countries getting K-12 education is still an issue while in most places of U.S is not. More information about “Higher Education in the Developing World” here.


Which is the root cause for U.S ranking in 12th percentile while compared with other countries? Many things come to the table such as : motivation, family support and economy.

Higher education at international level offers a higher degree of difficulty. Developing countries have very few public universities, therefore either you have a very high placement  and/or standardize score test to get into public universities or have money to pay a private one. Unfortunately, this same situation is suffered by some people in U.S, something that is not expected in an industrialized country with so many community colleges and state universities.

Education is important to keep and/or improve the quality of life and status in a society. In a capitalist country as U.S education plays a bigger role in the economy, if we know that why our school funding looks like this?:
