Life Lessons from Demi Lovato!

Recently, I watched a documentary on Demi Lovato’s life story. I watched how she talked about how she overcame her challenges and how she got stronger and got back on her feet once again.

While listening to her story, I learned that when she had an opportunity come her way she took it.

She started singing from 5 years old and sang at every opportunity she got. Starting From house parties, the malls, street singing…pretty much she sang everywhere. Why? Because she was following her dreams with a passion. True dreams need to be caught; You must run after them.

on the other hand, at the same time, you got to take stuff one pebble at a time because, if you take it all at once, you will feel pressured and then it can collapse on you. Once you collapse it’s hard to go back up; it’s possible but takes lots of effort. In Demi’s story, she started everything so fast. She was booked from TV show to TV show and was expected to be a role model that she wasn’t ready to be, and at one point when she was 17,18 it all collapsed in front of her.

The lesson I learned from watching Demi’s documentary is to take life a step a time, cuz when you do, only then you can enjoy it and live your dreams with passion.

I recommend watching Demi’s documentary. It has lessons for everyone at any age to learn.

Blog Post: March for Babies

Last Sunday, my mother, my aunt, and I went on the March for babies walk. My original motivation for going was that I needed community service credit for the National Society of Leadership and Success, but I didn’t find anybody with them. We had walked from Broadway Ave. all the way to 42 St. All the while, we saw many other school groups and families there. Everyone who walked also got cheered on by one of the schools. After that, we walked around a restaurant/market partly owned by Mario Batali. We didn’t get to see him, though. Nevertheless, I had a great time there walking around. I was happy that my mom and my aunt had joined me on this walk, and I would happily go on another one.



Blog Like Flaca Would


Flaca may be in prison for fraud and endangerment, but she’s got an opinion and she’s going to let you know it: how grades don’t matter, but words do, even your font choices.

She’s critical of stereotypes:


And how they cause angst.


And Flaca is fearless about taking risks with her big ideas.


Not everyone agrees with her, but she’s got a process and sticks to it. I think Flaca would be a great blogger as she would be:

  • thoughtful with her post titles,
  • giving her opinions,
  • backing them up with links,
  • proof reading her grammar and punctuation,
  • and embedding cool media that’s she’s made or found from elsewhere.

She knows the effort on the little things matters as well as just getting yourself out there.

Blog like Flaca would.

As the Sun Sets…

Time flies… especially when you’re in front of a computer screen. It was a great experience to be a part of the CT101 course.

I had a great time working on my site: I started this projected because of my personal journey in spirituality. For the most part I’ve kept my site within shades of blue because of my fondness of the ocean. (Even my user name CHILDofAGUA)

The site was separated into various categories that could give a further understanding about Lukumi. I thought to provide a history section, so users to access content about where it comes from and how it changed over time. Which lead me to create a section that could house different interviews I would gather from elders who wanted to share their stories with me. I added a vocabuarly section to help the user experience through all the content.

UPDATE: I actually changed my theme around to Sydney after the last class prevention. Added 2 new pictures that went better with my site and allowed for longer time before the header photos slide away. I changed the welcome page to speak about the site and its purpose.

I am looking forward to using the site next semester for online discussions about spirituality.
