    Women in Politics

    In past years, women stayed at home to be a full-time housewife and their spouse was the only to work to support their family. But in today’s society women are as active as they have ever been in our workforce. Today, we can see women working in every field such as politics, engineering, science, business and many more. Women have held top roles in politics but I believe Jacinda Arden has broken the new ground in politics. I adore her and her work in politics. She inspired all of us to become a person with full of love, compassion and kindness and a good leader. To be honest, I never really liked any politician but Jacinda is different from other leaders in so many ways. Jacinda has won people’s heart with her leadership style and no wonder why she has become a role model for many people especially youngsters. Let’s talk about her and how she became an inspirational leader.

    Let’s Hope the Door Hits Elizabeth Warren on the Way Out

    Let’s Hope the Door Hits Elizabeth Warren on the Way Out

    One of the biggest panderers and condescending candidates we ever have seen is calling it quits after a disastrous Super Tuesday (Super Thursday if you are Joe Biden). She turned off so many people she couldn’t win her home state of Massachusetts. She came to the realization there was no hope of beating out Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

    Women Who Seek to be Equal With Men Lack Ambition

    Women Who Seek to be Equal With Men Lack Ambition

    Intelligent, sensible, caring, understanding, personable, genuine, loving, literate, compassionate, empathetic, honest, having integrity, hard working, incredible: these are just some of the positive character traits of two women who are very special to me in my life. I could name them and talk more about them, but I am not going to do that. Firstly, these ladies may get embarrassed by my talking about them, and you may not wish to hear about two special ladies who you have not up until now heard of, and will probably never get to know either.

    Why I Want to Run for President

    Why I Want to Run for President

    First of all, I’m shy. I’m dreadfully shy. So nobody break down my email box with emails, please. I want to run for Governor of California and serve as the Senator of Los Angeles when I move to Sacramento, after getting my Ph.D. along with everything else, which is on my blog or Facebook page, and then I become a congressional representative in Washington, D.C. After that, the door is wide open to run for president. The old Man used to say that being president is a man’s job, and how dare I even think it?

    The Reason I Will Vote Tuesday

    The Reason I Will Vote Tuesday

    My first memory of Tiffany Caban is not a flash of imagery inside of a criminal court or a race for the Queens district attorney’s office. It is a very personal memory. I was a newly employed advocate for domestic violence survivors at an agency called Connect NYC in their legal advocacy helpline, and Tiffany was an intern law student from New York Law School. She had worked fiercely, preparing a case to petition for immigration relief for a survivor who had been brutally attacked by her ex-spouse. The photographs of the survivors’ injuries left lasting first impressions for those of us who helped her. Immigration relief for survivors oftentimes requires numerous documents, statements, certifications and letters that will confirm a survivor's willingness and efforts to report the violence they were subjected to. When everything had neatly arrived to the office and Tiffany went over the check list with our supervisor, she heard the words: “This was your advocacy work, you know?” I saw her face light up with surprise, realizing that her work had just made a difference in the life of someone facing a system that is oftentimes very unfair. I remember that moment fondly because I was coming to the same realizations myself. The year was 2010 and our path of advocating for the communities and people we cared about had just started. When I think about the insight Tiffany can have as the Queens District Attorney, that is the moment I will think about.

    Brexit: Remembering the Queen Mother in Times of Uncertainty in Britain

    Brexit: Remembering the Queen Mother in Times of Uncertainty in Britain

    Anyone who is a close follower of British politics knows that it would be an understatement to say that the United Kingdom is staring boldly in the face of instability and disunity due to the handling of Brexit negotiations. Parliament has squandered nearly all of their time since the 2016 referendum when the British people voted to leave the European Union. Instead of working in a unified matter to find a solution, which would allow Britain to exit on good terms with the EU and maintain stability in Britain.

    Elizabeth Warren 2020?

    Elizabeth Warren 2020?

    Some may know Elizabeth Warren from her comments that she claimed to have Native American Ancestry, and the flack from the Cherokee Nation, Trump, and minorities in her claiming to be Native American herself. This could spiral into a place where we accuse Warren of trying to gain credibility, appropriating, or taking the place of true Native Americans from an opportunity to work at an Ivy League University like Harvard. Although Warren has slipped on her past (like many of the 12 other candidates running for office) I find that if we focus on Warren's ideals and her plan to fix Trump's mess (and history's mess), that Elizabeth Warren may be able to become the next President in the 2020 Democratic Election. Personally, I am in between Sanders, Harris, and Warren for 2020 but, I have to look into them more. Here is my take on the case for Warren in the 2020 Election:
