Getting AHEAD

When a woman is getting ahead in life or in business, why do we immediate assume she "Gave Head" to man who has power? Instead of poor judgment or jealousy gossip remarks, maybe we should see the bigger picture; she worked hard to get AHEAD in their success. Whether it was with her education, or education;  she worked hard to get her position and respect in the media industry.

It is hard for a woman to be successful in the media industry without being discriminated. Men will always underestimate us, or expect our legs to be open  in their private office in exchange for an opportunity to get ahead. It might take 5-15 minutes of uncomfterable sex but at the end of the day, your reputation as a woman will be ruined. I am sure he will spread the word within the industry and sooner or later, your legs will be required to be open more than once.

I can relate regarding this issue because, I am a woman in the media industry who has been mistaken by others actions. Instead of men taking my career proposals seriously when we have meetings they are undressing me with their eyes. Not only are they starring at my chest, but do not read my lips because they are too busy fantasizing what they can do to my other lips. Its beyond disrespectful and frustrating. They need to put away their desires and focus on business. I am aware I have a nice cup size but my talent and education does not define the size of my breast or how great I can give you head. That's my business and it wont mix with your business.

 Beauty and brains is a plus, but not all women will use their beauty behind close doors to get somewhere in life. It takes a strong valued woman to say, "Fuck you, I am a lady." Men with power need to value women who are educated and dedicated seriously and not try to take advantage of their passion. I had so many producers, artist, and so called, business men try to be smooth thinking they will get lucky. Just because there was some desperate women out there who gave you head after business hours doesn't mean all of us will. Its beyond disrespectful who some men think with their dick and not their brain.  I mean, how will you feel if someone tried to pull that move on your daughter. I bet you will not appreciate it. I know my father doesn't himself.

To the women out there who are working on a career in the media field such as modeling, acting, broadcasting, or singing; You do not have to open your legs to be successful but work harder for your passion and achieve it within time. A lot of doors will be slammed in your face, but remember one day someone who tried to abuse their power will be knocking on yours when you become beyond successful.

I am member of his Victim List

We all have heard the recent #metoo stories hundreds' of women have shared in the past few weeks after the recent  Hollywood scandals. They all had the topic of sexual harassment which 3 in 5 women have encountered by the age of 25 but what if we encountered this epidemic at a much younger age?

I had my share of #metoo stories as a became a a woman, especially when I was working in the film industry trying to be a producer. I had a few Hispanic producers ask me to come to their hotel rooms to "seal the deal." I never thought getting on your knees was part of the  job application but I was   raised to have dignity and for that; I stopped pursuing my career in L.A. and moved to San Francisco.

I know San Francisco is known for being a sexual city but to my surprise, I have received more respect there in the past 3 years I have lived here than in the few months I worked in L.A.

I salute the women who shared their stories to the world. After debating for weeks and also deali…

A Life Changing Summer

Summer time is all about the sun kissed beach days, pool parties with floating flamingos, and camp trips with the family but for me; Summer time was tragic!

My summer started like any other,  filled with plans to visit my family and have fun under the sun but things took a tragic turn towards the end.

The sunny summer I was living became a thunder storm as I received the worst Direct Message anyone could open via Instagram. It was my best friends little sister informing me that Gaby, whom I  loved like a sister had passed away that morning!

I immediately thought it was a bad joke but my sky became dark and heavy as the thunder of truth arrived with the terrible news.

Just like any storm, lighting stroked me as I answered the call that changed my life forever!

Gabys mother, Myra was crying which such devastation that when she said, "Gaby passed away mija", I couldn't say anything other than, "No, no no! This is not happening!"

I was in denial but hearing her mo…

Always Hungry for More

By Gardenia Zuniga-Haro
"Can I have extra meat on my burrito please," said Parra while we ordered food at Taqueria Cancun in downtown Berkeley.

Sitting down to a  table he took a deep sip of his horchata and went on to mention how excited he was for summer to start. He shared how he might go to Europe to play for a major soccer team but before I jump into the future, let me reverse with a bit of history of Victor Emilio Parra.

You may have seen him on on television participating in an ESPN reality show, perhaps playing soccer across the world or maybe even checked him out in one of his Instagram posts BUT do you know the real Victor?

I didn't really know him either so if you said NO, then don't feel bad. I will make sure that after this article you get to know who he is besides what you have seen so far.

Victor came from very humble beginnings. He grew up in the slums of Medellin, Colombia and just like any little boy, he picked up a soccer ball.

"I did not like play…
