A conference room maxed at capacity resulting in standing room of SBVC students who were treated to the founder of their favorite snack Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos. The majority of the students were of Latino/Hispanic decent, along with students of other ethnicity welcome Mr. Richard Montanez,  Vice President of Multicultural Sales and Marketing North America for PepsiCo.

A Tiger’s Heart Wrapped In A Woman’s Hide

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – Every once in a great while someone and/or something crosses your path & impacts your life inadvertently. This week I had the pleasure of stumbling upon Jenica’s beautiful & courageous triumph. I was so moved by her raw transparency that I couldn’t help but send her a private message via FB requesting her permission to share her story. Thankfully, she was beyond gracious & allowed me (a perfect stranger) the honor of highlighting her story in this weeks blog.   Continue reading A Tiger’s Heart Wrapped In A Woman’s Hide

TRUE BEAUTY

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – 99% of women HATE their bodies. We’re too fat, too thin, too dark, under-eye circles, wrinkles, fat ankles, funky toes, weird nose, bad teeth, ect., ect., ect…

We live in a society that has created an extremely deceitful illusion of what “PERFECTION/TRUE BEAUTY” is. According to society, in order to “be someone” you have to be “Beautiful”. Meaning, unless you have long blonde hair, mesmerizing violet blue eyes, double D firm breasts, a 32’ waistline, 36’ hips, voluptuously pouty lips, a small upturned nose, & a flawless sun-kissed complexion you’re neither “perfect” nor “beautiful”. This extremely skewed illusion has created an inferno of self-hatred.

In my opinion, TRUE BEAUTY is defined by what lies in the depths of one’s heart. Moreover, beauty is the essence of YOU. You are an original, a one and only, a creation of God. There is absolutely no one else in the world like you. When you focus on being your truest & most authentic self, there is absolutely NO competition.

By Rudi Lopez, M.A. | rudi.benhtv@gmail.com

Los Angeles, CA. – A thrilling and inspiring true story begins on the eve of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
