Pasiones began with a welcome address by Susana Martinez '12, President of Latinas Unidas. She expressed her excitement at how big of an event Pasiones had become after only two years and thanked us all for being there. As people trickled in from the snacks table which was piled high with flan, a cheese platter and fruit, Ana Christina Archilla '13 led the lineup with Poema 20 by Pablo Neruda. She was followed by several students, faculty and staff members who read work in either Spanish or English from various Latino/a authors and poets including Sandra Cisneros, Jorge Debravo, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Reinaldo Arenas. 
   
Being that I am a proud member of the Rafael Ocasio fan club, (we need more members. Join now!) once I peeked in the program and saw that he was going to be presenting, I knew that it was going to be a great evening. However, what makes an event like Pasiones so worthwhile is that it provides an avenue for the budding writers we have on campus to showcase their talents.  Aniceta Kalena Williams '11  read from her own original work titled, Tell Me Your Story. Before she started reading Kalena said, "I'm about to get real deep on y'all" as the short non-fiction piece gave us a glimpse into her Afro-Mexican heritage and explored the tenuous relationship between old world and new.

There were some laughs (albeit, bittersweet) as Carolyn Mahoney '12 read Las Girlfriends by Sandra Cisneros which  details the lives of a group of feisty women who've "been to hell and back."
    
Disappointed you missed it? Well, regret no more! The Paper Chase blog will soon upload photos and audio recordings of the piece(s) that were read. You will be able to download them to your computer and listen to the passionate readings from Pasiones.

Pasiones: Latinos in Writing & Speaking is an annual event that is cosponsored by Latinas Unidas, the Hispanic/ Latino(a) student union at Agnes Scott, and the The Center for Writing and Speaking.
