The beeping, I can't take the beeping

I get in my car. First of all, I can’t stand the snow. Yeah, it’s pretty and all that stuff, but I can’t take the snow. It’s dirty and wet. It make my car slide all over the place; causes wet floors and me (with no balance) almost killing myself, or better yet, bruising something... Read more »

How to be involved in #WhereThePumpAreYou?

How to be involved in #WhereThePumpAreYou?
When we created this, I immediately thought of the move “Up in the Air.” You’ll understand why in a second. Yesterday, I sat with some pretty insightful media folks on a committee to help the American Diabetes Association’s Chicago chapter launch its social media campaign for the Expo in April.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor: A woman to emulate

Justice Sonia Sotomayor: A woman to emulate
When I first heard about Chief Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s appointment to the Supreme Court, I was thrilled to say the least. If anything at all, I was thankful that a Latina  was speaking out about how her life would ultimately play a role in her decisions on the bench. Remember the chaos that surrounded that?...

I'm better because I'm both
This falls in line with a lot of different things, doesn’t it? The title of the blog, I mean. But in my case, I’m better because I’m a lot of things. Where is this coming from? Well, Latina Smart asked me if I’d like to be featured on their next Twitter party. Are you serious, I... Read more »

Educación in an idioma you understand
People call me Kiki because of my Twitter handles, not because they’ve known me forever. Only my family and life-long friends know me as Kiki, so hearing my name out there is sometimes kind of weird.
