“The future of humanity is the childhood heritage”. But … More than 99 million children under age 5 are malnourished and below their normal weight. More than 17,000 children die each day because of preventable causes (pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria). 29% of the deaths could be prevented by vaccines. 289,000 maternal deaths in the past year. There are 58 million children who can not go to school. 60% of children in difficult environments have lack of literacy skills. There are 93 million disabled children in the world who no receive any help. 125 million girls mutilated, 700 million of women forced to get married. 168 million of kids forced to do hard labor.

“El lenguaje es una herramienta para pensar, imaginar y acabar siendo. Las experiencias personales, la cultura y las reglas bajo las cuales dictamos nuestro comportamiento son para el lenguaje alas; alas para volar en un mundo propio dónde transcurre nuestra existencia. Eso todo en conjunto eres TÚ”.
“The language is a tool for thinking, imagining and ends up in being. Personal experiences culture and rules that dictate our behavior are wings for the language. Wings for flying in an own world where our existence elapses; All together shapes who you/we are”

Of course, we compare our writing with the best; we never think that all these “great works” have been rewritten and polished many times. Being in the early twenties, we all dreamed with that work which would catapult us to national prominence. But seriously, I am Spanish – Why expose myself to this macabre idea about writing in English? Everything happens for a reason [The Cliché]. Sigue leyendo
I used to fight against stereotypes
Not only bigoted people use stereotypes
Believe it or not, we all have a biased view of this world
Do you recognize your biases?
A part of me winced; our camera has only ONE perspective!
We are so limited! How can we survive?
This article will be terribly boring…
It´s not about life, neither about stereotypes
It´s all about cognition
Are you still here? Sigue leyendo
