webinar13-recap.png

The world can be a hostile place for women of color. And still, we go above-and-beyond through sheer force and sacrifice in everything we do because failure is not an option. Doris Quintanilla, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Melanin Collective, will guide you through this #werkshop on how to build a better relationship with yourself. It's a #werkshop because the effectiveness of the workshop relies on you bringing an open mind, body and spirit. Expect to do real #werk on yourself and for yourself. 

Doris grew up in Santa Ana, California and received a BA from UCLA in International Development with a focus on Latin America and the Middle East. After a traumatic brain injury in 2015 that resulted in permanent cognitive disabilities, she decided to leave toxic nonprofit spaces. After nine years of working in community health education, youth development and sexual and reproductive health, Doris entered a new chapter in her life; working to create a world in which disabilities are normalized, race and gender wage gaps are non-existent and women of color thrive and live fulfilling lives. To create this world, Doris co-founded The Melanin Collective: Women of Color, Standing Together (The MC), a space for women of color to see their true self and value, work as a collective for the common good and develop supportive, professional and lasting relationships.

Here's a brief recap of what Doris covers in this webinar:

5 Reasons Why You Must Go RVing With Your Family

Disclosure: This trip was possible thanks to a partnership with Go RVing.

I'll have to be vulnerable here and admit that I never had it in any bucket or wishlist to one day go on an RV trip. I thought it was too complicated, too time-consuming, too expensive and just not my idea of a relaxing vacation. RVs were for retired people that had the time to hit the road and aimlessly explore. I'm so happy all my misconceptions were wildly shattered this summer and I have no problem admitting I was 100% wrong. So wrong, that I want to make sure that if you have any of those misconceptions or stereotypes about the RV life, I can help you change your mind by sharing with you my family's experience.

I had the opportunity to partner with GoRVing.com (a #WeAllGrow Summit 2018 sponsor) to borrow a motorhome to take my daughter on an RV adventure this summer, but I was super intimidated to do it alone. Little did I know that my brother in law in El Salvador had always dreamt of taking his family on an RV trip throughout California. As soon as he found out, he begged me to take the collaboration so him, my sister, niece and nephew could join us on a 6-day summer road trip to Yosemite. It was SO perfect since one of the hardest things about living in L.A. (the only one aside from traffic!) is that we have no family here and it's always a bit cost prohibitive for them to visit. This RV trip was the perfect way for us to go on a family adventure together!

If the thought of an RV adventure for your family has ever crossed your mind, but you've hesitated to take the plunge, let me share with you just five reasons why I highly recommend you give RVing a go.

1. It's Affordable

Pismo Coast Village RV Resort

Renting an RV is much more affordable and easier than you think! The RV we had was a rental from El Monte RV in Newport Beach, CA. Because we were a family of six, the motorhome that best fit our needs was a Class C Family Sleeper. Renting that via El Monte costs you approximately $270 to $350 per night depending on the time of year with summer being high season. You have to add the cost of insurance which you can purchase there or check with your provider if you're covered. The RV includes a generator and a basic starter kit. It can start adding up if you purchase a Personal Convenience or Kitchen kit with sheets, towels, pans, coffee maker, etc. You can also cut down costs by bringing all those items with you. No worries, there's plenty of storage for everything – more on that on #3 below.

The other expenses will be gas, food and the campsites. Most overnight RV campgrounds with hookups range from $30 to $75 per night. All in all, for a family of six, the cost of a trip where we'd have to pay for two hotel rooms, flights (if flying), local transportation and eating out is much more expensive than an RV trip where you have all the conveniences and more in natural settings that are just priceless.

2. It's a Home Away From Home

Somewhere along the road to Yosemite 

It's camping upgraded because you're out in nature exploring idyllic sites like Yosemite and then you get to come back to take a shower in your bath, prepare dinner in your kitchen and eat it under the stars next to a picture-perfect campfire. 

The RV had everything we needed and much more space than we expected. The kitchen was small, as expected, but fully stocked with a microwave, gas stove, oven and sink. The fridge was a very decent size and we had cupboards galore to store all the utensils, dishes and food. My sister and I had no problem preparing all three meals, snacks and cocktails (of course!) in the RV kitchen. 

We slept really comfortably and each of us in our own beds. My sister and her husband had the master bedroom; my daughter and niece loved sharing the bunk bed. My nephew took the sofa bed and I had the whole overhead loft to myself. 

It was hot and smoky in Yosemite when we were there due to a massive fire nearby, so we did have to spend a lot of time inside the RV, but the AC kept us cool and with the doors and windows closed to block out the smoke. 

The bathroom is small but works oh-so-well! We never had issues with hot water or dumping out the grey water. It wasn't our favorite task, but my brother in law became a pro after a few days!

All the conveniences from home or a nice hotel, set in the most beautiful locations you can find.

3. Location, Location, Location

Yosemite Lakes RV Resort

We were so lucky we found perfect spots at both campgrounds we stayed in. At the Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in Pismo Beach, we woke up right in front of the Pacific ocean to the sound of the waves and breathtaking views. The kids loved that they could rent bikes to go around the family-friendly resort and we definitely felt that we could rest as it was the perfect one-night pit stop on our way to Yosemite from Los Angeles. 

At Yosemite Lakes RV Resort we got so lucky because we found a spot right on the Tuolumne River bank. It was just so beautiful, picture perfect and serene. It was also a very convenient spot to explore Yosemite as it's only a bus ride away from the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and the heart of the national park.

There are plenty of ways to find the perfect campground for you. GoRVing has a page where you can search for RV campgrounds and destinations all around the country.

4. It's an Adventure

Top of Vernal Falls

On our first day at Yosemite Lakes, we decided to just stay in the campgrounds to finish setting up, relax and enjoy the beautiful river and hikes at our front door. It was just time to let it all soak in. 

On our second and third days at Yosemite, we took the Yarts bus to Yosemite Valley. We definitely didn't want to move the RV from the campsite because it would mean having to pack things up and disconnect from electricity and sewage. The downside was that we had to rely on the bus hours (which are limited) and the free shuttles to get around the valley. If you plan this trip, I'd recommend the alternative to take a car with you that you either drive or pull (an additional cost to do that) so you're able to explore at leisure once at your destination, though it can definitely add up the costs and the complications. 

There was a massive fire burning about 15 miles away from Yosemite Valley, so we had to deal with a lot of smoke and low visibility, which definitely put a damper on most of our plans. We were still able to go on hikes to mesmerizing waterfalls like Yosemite Falls and Vernal Falls, as well as walk through beautiful meadows all while taking in the massive beauty of this national treasure.

5. It's JUST Perfect for Families

Game night!

The last but most important of all the reasons why you need to plan an RV trip with your family is simply that it's just perfect for families of all sizes. I was able to bring together my sister's family and mine in one trip where we closely bonded amongst nature, road trip sing-a-longs, cooking together, campfire moments, board games, river wading, hikes and long drives with awe-inspiring views. 

It's definitely a trip none of us will ever forget, but for the kids, it was especially magical to be able to share this experience together and create memories that will surely last us all a lifetime. These Highlights – RV Trip 1 and RV Trip 2 – of the Instagram Stories I shared of our adventure truly capture the joy of our first RVing trip together – the first of many more to come!

The Grand Canyon is next on our list, in case you have any tips for that. ;)

Thank you to GoRVing for partnering with me to make this unforgettable trip possible. Make sure you make gorving.com your first stop if you're planning your own RV adventure!

Keeping Your Kids Safe Online with Google’s Se Genial en Internet

Se Genial en Internet se trata sobre enseñarles a ser: Inteligentes, Alertas, Seguros, Amables y Valientes cuando hagan uso del Internet de una forma divertida.”

Fun-Internet-Safety-Kids-Game-2-768x1024.jpg

Jessica Castaneda - Easy Living Today

“One of the resources they offer is a super fun game called Interland. It is browser based and it makes learning all of these skills fun and interactive. I actually had the pleasure of seeing kids play Interland live at a Google event last week called Genial en Internet. Let me tell you, the kids were having a blast and the game is awesome.”

Be Internet Awesome

Deborah Cruz - The Truth About Motherhood

“Last week, I saw the program in action at an event hosted by Google for students and their parents at Gallistel Language Academy in Chicago. It was moving to see all these parents show up for their children on a weekday, in the middle of the day. They know that it’s important that we teach our kids to be safe online because we can’t watch them every minute of every day.”

Moms Own Soccer with Comcast

It’s the summer of soccer y la fiebre del fútbol is now in full effect. The many unexpected moments that have caught fans by surprise at the soccer championship has us all screaming and celebrating with excitement. Go, Mexico! ¡Arriba Colombia!


Comcast understands this and has created the best way to experience soccer through its Xfinity platform. We partnered with Comcast and a group of influencers in the San Francisco area to attend an event and learn about the Xfinity X1’s unique features to experience soccer this summer.

Claudia Candelas

“Comcast integrated an entire section that is a hub for all the games, highlights, standings, scores, clips, and more. Also, the X1 remote now has Spanish-voice activated demands. You just speak into the remote in either Spanish or English, and you’re set. I showed my mom this feature, and she loved it!”

new-xfinity-remote.jpg

By Claudya

“No offense to my husband–I love you, BOO!–but I met a remote that is a WAY better listener than he is. This remote is such a good listener that it will listen to me in English or in Spanish and it can even understand my mom, who has a heavy accent when she speaks in English. That’s WAY more than my husband can do.”

Crystal Carabajal

“You can now view every big moment from the Soccer Championships with DVR Highlights.  On completed match recordings, X1 customers who have DVR service can browse and jump between high impact plays. With many matches airing while people are away from their TV’s or at work, DVR Highlights ensure that X1 customers never miss a goal.  How cool is that?”

“Who doesn’t worry about kids safety while going online? Right now Adrian and Maya are in the stage where they both love to spend hours on the Internet more than anything else and we have to be very careful to regulate their time but also to teach them to take care of themselves and protect them from the risks that the digital world can bring. Se genial en internet, is a wonderful way to help Latino families discuss internet safety at home together.”

Vanessa Bell

“If they know how to do anything, Google knows how to communicate and spread information. That’s exactly why their digital citizenship for kids program is so effective. (And the fact that they also made it available entirely in Spanish so that all families can benefit is even more amazing.) Their robust digital citizenship curriculum can be downloaded by parents AND teachers (making this an awesome resource for teaching digital citizenship in schools), has received the Seal of Alignment from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and comes with all the digital citizenship lesson plans a teacher would need.”

Wanted: Bilingual Guerreras!

I_Really_Do_Care.png

#WeAllGrow Latina is organizing a force of bilingual latinas willing to donate translation or interpretation services to organizations offering legal services to kids separated from their families. ¿Te apuntas?

No matter where our families come from, Latinos are united by language. In the U.S., our ability to successfully navigate our cultures is deeply tied to the ability to speak more than one language.

Ironically, it is also our language, our accents, that are used against us - what should be a point of pride, proof that we can speak more than one language, is for many a sign that we are the “other” and that we don’t belong.

We say ¡basta! - let’s reclaim our bilingual superpowers and use them for good. In these times of crisis, what ties us together is also what allows us to help in ways that others can’t.

If you would like to donate your culture and language skills to help children in need, your skills are critically needed. ¡Unidas podemos ayudar!

FAQs

So what’s the plan?

The plan is to get a group together of bilingual latinas willing to donate their language abilities - whether you can translate written Spanish → English, written English → Spanish, simultaneous interpretation, or critically, if you speak indigenous languages - we want to know who you are so we can can connect you with organizations that desperately need language help.
 

What’s the time commitment?

Answer: It depends on where you volunteer. Each group has different requirements. We just want to know that you are willing to use your language superpowers for good, and we’ll connect you to the right people.

What level of proficiency is needed?

We’re not looking for certified translators (although it’s obviously ideal if you are!) and you certainly don’t have to be a lawyer or paralegal. Sometimes they need people to accompany children to hearings, sometimes they need help translating birth certificates, and sometimes you’ll be asked to help lawyers communicate with families via text - believe it or not, language barriers can make something a simple as setting up an appointment unnecessarily burdensome. If you can help ease that, we want to help you do that.

The plan is to offer our army of bilingual guerreras opportunities to help, and you can choose when you want to raise your hand and offer your services where your skills match the need.
