Happy Mother's Day Mommy & Grandma- June Menzies/Anacleta Abraham.

The two most important people in my life, my mommy and grandma RIP......They mean so much to me and on this day I would like to honor them as they deserve nothing but the best...

They both watch over, nourish and protect me but mommy had one more job which was maternally.  They are both my doctor and nurse rolled into one.  If it's a fever, a cut, a broken tooth, it doesn't matter.  They know how to fx it.  They are the chief cook.  The dependable moms. 

They are my counselor.  They listen to all my problems and help me try to solve them.  Although grandma isnt here anymore she still has that place in my heart just as if she was here.  I remember like it was just yesterday she was here with me.  She was mom to me.  I barely known her as grandma though she played that role too. 

My mom and grandma are the light at the end of the tunnel in the wake of a storm.  They are MOM!!!!
Over-worked, underpaid, and tired but they never ever complain.  I thank God everyday for blessing me with two wonderful people.  He took away one from me early but i know she is in a better place and mommy is right here doing what she would have done... I love both forever and a day.

History of Mother's Day....Its Origin

The second Sunday in May has been set aside in honor of Motherhood.  Many churches have special services in which they honor mothers of the congregation.  They usually present the oldest Mom, youngest mom and mom with the most children in church.

There is a custom of wearing a carnation on Mother's Day.  A coloured carnation means that the person's Mother is living.  A white carnation indicated that a person's mom is dead. 

Years ago, England observed what they called Mothering Sunday.  It came in mid-Lent. The first suggestion for a day set aside to honor Mothers was made by Julia Ward Howe.  She suggested that it be observed on June 2, as a day dedicated to peace. 

Julia was born in 1819 in New York to a prominent family.  She was an American writer and reformer.  She was known as one of the most famous women of her time. 

Julia became interested in the women's movement.  She chose the second Sunday in May to celebrate Motherhood.  She also began the custom of wearing the carnation.  Her own mother was honored on the first service at Andrews Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

Let's Honor all our Mothers tomorrow and let them feel special just as they are.  To my mom, I love you...

Business Mixer- Career Development

A Business Mixer is being planned each year for the purpose of pomoting greater integration with the business community.  It features a very diverse group of executives, drawn from all areas of t he commercial, industrial and service sub-sectors.

On Thursday, May 5th, 2011 a Business Mixer was held at the Radisson Fort George Hotel in the Caracol Room on the 5th floor.  There were many businesses present at the meeting/conference such as: BTL, Courts, Grace Kenedy, Brodies etc.  These business gave us the students informations about their companies and answered any questions we had to the best of their ability. 

This Business Mixer was worth it as it helped students to grow and be better aware of the work force. It also helps to prepare us for the future when we go out in the working field. 

Thanks to all those teachers who planned this Business Mixer and tot he companies who sponsored this event.  It was successful and all students enjoyed it.

Labor Day Holiday

Labor day is an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. 

 Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women. It has been celebrated as a national holiday.  It means a day off to  relax from all the hard work put in during the years a worker sweat.

Therefore, we need to honor all our hard working people in society today....Withoug so many professions and workers, no job or task would have been done...we wouldn't have a society....So to all those working people, rest up and be proud of yourselves..It shows a sign of being independent too, working for your own money and taking care of priorities....

Happy Labor Day!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy Saturday Cross Country!!!!!!

On this beautiful Holy Saturday morning, a bunch of riders rode off from Leslie's imports to San Ignacio and back to Belize City. 

In this sun hot, they rode 144 miles.  Of course we all wanted a Belizean to win and take back the garland unfortunately, a foreigner wanted it more than us.  Luis Santizo from Team Sugar City in Orange Walk took the garland from us again, he was a Guatemalan. 

However, we still have to big up our Belizeans for a race well done.  They all tried their best and that was it.  they worked hard.  There is always next year to try harder again and i believe a Belizean will get it next year..

There is still hope :P

What is Good Friday??

Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is the most solemn day in the Christian calendar. The dates of Good Friday, which vary each year, occur between March 20th and April.   

Good Friday rituals and traditions are distinct from every other Church observances. They add to Good Friday's significance. The ceremony is somber, with priests and deacons dressing in black vestments. The pulpit and the altar are bare; no candles are lit.

Facts about Depression!!!

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and physical well-being. It may include feelings of sadness, anxiety, emptiness, hopelessness, worthlessness, guilt, irritability, or restlessness.

Sometimes friends or family members recognize that someone is depressed. They may respond with love, kindness, or support, hoping that the sadness will soon pass. They may offer to listen if the person wants to talk. If the depressed feeling doesn't pass with a little time, friends or loved ones may encourage the person to get help from a doctor, therapist, or counselor.

Many of us go through depression..It's something called life.. we just need to know how to cope or deal with it.  Let's keep that smile on someone's face.  :)

Will a Belizean win this Cross Country 2011??

This is an amateur event, but if you're thinking of entering you had better be fit! This one starts at Mile 2 outside Belize City and races all the way to San Ignacio, only to turn there and race all the way back: a staggering 140 mile ride in what can be punishingly hot conditions. Prevailing easterlies may help the riders a little on the way west, but coming back those tiring legs have to push against those very winds, by which time the sun has had time to start softening the tar on the road surface!

For the past years we have seen a foreigner taking home our garland...Belizean cyclists need to put a stop to this as we have many potential riders who are fit to be on this postion too.  Of course there is the best [Marlon Castillo] <3....and several others like Darnell Borrow, SHane Vasquez etc.  These guys need to put there all and show that Belizeans are capable of getting back the garland. 

Also, we need more support from the Belizean public..Motivation is key for al these riders and we need to be there supporting them until the end.  More sponsorhsip is needed too..This a way of giving back..so busniness dont be selfish...Again, Lets see and hope for a Belize to take back this title once again...

Congratulatiions to Mr. And Ms. SJCJC 2011!!!!!

On Saturday night, the Mr and Ms. SJCJC pageant was held in the Princess Kings room at 6:00 pm.  It was packed with students, elders, children etc. all cheering on their favorite contestant.  It was a fun and enjoyable night.  I can talk on behalf of most people because that statement is true.  In all there were 7 contestants, four girls and three boys.  They all gave their all to this pageant.. they were well pepared for the most part...

This pageant was tight competition.  I wouldn't want the judege's position. Jeez, all these contestants had their thing going on..but then again only two people can earn the title.  the pageant was divided into sections, there were the introduction, career speech, talent, swim souit, evening gown and question and answer, the part that alwyas give contestants trouble most of the time.  However, the contestants all rocked these sections well and they were having fun although it was a competition.

At the end of the night, Ms. Chloe Daly and Raheem Martinez walked away with the crowns and titles.  They did deserve it tho...I must say all the contestants were excellent and they are all winners in my eyes.  First of all, they the minute they entered that pageant they are winners because it takes courage and confidence to go up for a pageant.  Again, congratulations to all contestants. job well done and special congratulations to both winners... Carry on the title in a good name and be proud of yall achievment.   At the end of the day, you guys did great...

My views on Violence in Belize

Violence in Belize is increasing drastically.  Everyday on the news you hear another male or female falling to the ground, dead from gang related violence.  This is terrible especially for a little counrty as Belize.  We need to put an end to violence.  So many innocent people are getting hurt too and nothing is being done.  This is so sad. 

To the people of Belize, do you really feel that you got a true leader? If so, you should support him and call for an end to all the voilence. Now, to the Prime Minister,the Governor General,the Mayor,the Top Cop and anyone associated with the body of government, it is time for a change and if you can't get the job done, please step aside. There is no disgrace in doing so, that is actually showing love for your Country and open the door of oppertunity for a true leader that will face these problem head on.

Tuesday, 29 March 2011


Many of us take life for granted.  Look around us, our society, community etc.  the violence is unending.  Many young lives are taken at a young age.  Many of our youths are being murderers, robbers etc. 

Let's not take life for granted and five thanks to God each we awake to see the sun rise and our beautiful surroundings.  Live life to the fullest and have no regrets.  Make mistakes and learn from them.  Party and have clean fun and also remember to go to church and give that hour to the almighty father who gave us life.

Definition of LOVE

The word "love" can have a variety of related but distinct meanings in different contexts. Often, other languages use multiple words to express some of the different concepts that English relies mainly on "love" to encapsulate.  Although the nature of love is a subject of frequent debate, different aspects of the word can be clarified by determining what isn't love.

As a general expression of positive sentiment (a stronger form of like), love is commonly contrasted with hate as a less sexual and more emotionally intimate form of romantic attachment, love is commonly contrasted with lust; and as an interpersonal relationship with romantic overtones, love is sometimes contrasted with friendship, although the word love is often applied to close friendships.

 "Love is not a thing to understand.
Love is not a thing to feel.
Love is not a thing to give and receive.
Love is a thing only to become
And eternally be. "

My Best Friend



Today I found a friend,
Who knew everything I felt.
She knew my every weakness,
And the problems I've been dealt.

She understood my wonders,
And listened to my dreams.
She listened to how I felt about life and love,
And knew what it all means.
Not once did she interrupt me,
Or tell me I was wrong.

She understood what I was going through,
And promised she'd stay long
I reached out to this friend
To show her that i care
To pull her close and let her know
How much I need her there
I went to hold her hand
To pull her a bit nearer
And realized that this perfect friend I found
Was nothing but my mirror.

This poem is dedicated to all my close/best friends..you all know who you are..Thank you for always being there through my bad and good times...That is what true friends do...we stick to the end...Again thank you all!!!!!!!!

Read about Peer Pressure....It's all around us.....

Peer pressure refers to the influence exerted by a group in encouraging a person to change his or her attitudes, values, or behavior in order to conformto group norms.

When you were a little kid, your parents usually chose your friends, putting you in playgroups or arranging playdates with certain children they knew and liked. Now that you're older, you decide who your friends are and what groups you spend time with.
Your friends your peers are people your age or close to it who have experiences and interests similar to yours. You and your friends make dozens of decisions every day, and you influence each other's choices and behaviors. This is often positive it's human nature to listen to and learn from other people in your age group.
As you become more independent, your peers naturally play a greater role in your life. As school and other activities take you away from home, you may spend more time with peers than you do with your parents and siblings. You'll probably develop close friendships with some of your peers, and you may feel so connected to them that they are like an extended family.
Besides close friends, your peers include other kids you know who are the same age like people in your grade, church, sports team, or community. These peers also influence you by the way they dress and act, things they're involved in, and the attitudes they show.
It's natural for people to identify with and compare themselves to their peers as they consider how they wish to be (or think they should be), or what they want to achieve. People are influenced by peers because they want to fit in, be like peers they admire or do what others are doing at the time.......Be a leader not a follower...learnt it from my daddy :)

Accounting Trip :)

About 50 Accounting students accompanied by some business teachers went on a day trip last Friday, March 18th.  It was well organized by Ms. Kenisha Williams...Thank you Ms.   We went in  the Cayo District and visited Running W Meats, Quality Poultry and Western Dairies.

Running W meats was our first stop where we got some information about the compan and what they do and the meat products they sell.  Also, we went to the farm and saw the animals....cows, pigs etc.   Some students were fascinated by this lol...

Our second stop was Quality Poultry... Here we watched a video of the actual process of how they produced chicken.  We asked questions and got information we needed.

Furthermore, our last stop was Western Daires... this was my favorite spot.. I got ICE-CREAM..hehe (Chocolate Vanilla Twist) YUM!!!!!! I enjoyed it....But besides eating that delicious ice-cream, we learn how they made cheese, milk, ice-cream and yoghurt.   This was fascinating.....

Finally, I must say the trip was fun and educational... I must say we all enjoyed it even on the bus was fun.....We reached back city about 5:00pm.....It was the best accounting trip ever...we should go back again........Peace!!!!!!!!!

Say "NO" to Offshore drilling in Belize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oceana is opposed to any offshore drilling in Belizean territorial waters and says all it takes is one spill of the magnitude of the Gulf Oil spill for Belize to lose everything. The recently released map prepared February 2010 by the Geology and Petroleum Department has confirmed previous speculation that massive oil exploration concessions have been granted throughout the country of Belize. This map shows that even the territorial waters of Belize has been divided up amongst eight of the seventeen companies which are grantees of these lease.

Oceana is gravely concerned with the concessions already granted in Belize’s territorial waters especially seeing that they include declared reserves and national parks. A decision of this magnitude that can wipe out our tourism and fishing industry, eliminate our marine food security and devastate the viability of coastal communities, should be a transparent process with input from all social partners and the general public. It is therefore necessary for the Government to promptly explain the rational behind the massive parceling of our marine territory including areas encompassing our reef and atolls.
Oceana’s VP for Belize, Audrey Matura-Shepherd stated that “while we wish for our country to develop and progress we cannot do so to the detriment of our long-term survival. The recent spill in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana has shown us that even a rich and highly advanced country like the great USA is not equipped to handle such disaster, and thus this should teach us to proceed with much caution as one accident ten times less can wipe out our entire coastline and send Belize into an economic depression never seen before.”

In addition Oceana calls on the people of Belize to become more informed and involved in this issue since it will not only affect those living along the coast or near inland wells. The people of this country stand to gain very little from any oil exploration since as the recent disclosure of BNE’s operation and agreements have shown the bulk of the wealth from oil extracted does not remain in Belize. Belize as a country has not become any richer; nor any more developed as a result of the ongoing oil extraction taking place since the returns do not measure up to the risk taken. This risk is even more grave in our waters because of the ocean currents and the fragility of the marine eco-system.

Oceana calls on the Government of Belize to place a complete halt on all planned offshore exploration and to revoke all leases presently granted on our territorial waters.

Anitcipating Easter Vacation- Placencia

Belize is a rare tropical paradise as seductive as any in the Caribbean. Amidst this bright oasis lies The Placencia, a gated 6,500-acre resort community encompassing a realm of family-style indulgences, including a new privately owned international airport, our own private island, the all-inclusive Placencia Club and the historic creation of a 55,000-acre conservation easement to be forever pure. As the flagship destination for Belize, The Placencia invites you to see, feel and experience the Beauty of Belize from rainforest to reef.

The Placencia Peninsula - an 11 mile strip of land sandwiched between the Caribbean Sea and the Placencia Lagoon in Belize, has beautiful white sandy beaches and - because of its distance from the reef - it also has "real' though not very high) surf. The water is clean and clear; the trade winds gentle and cooling. There are few sights more calming to the spirit than a Belizean sunset on a deserted Placencia Peninsula beach. A visitor on her first visit to Belize had this to say about Placencia:
"All the fears of going to Belize were unfounded. I had friends tell me I was crazy for going to an obscure Central American country that they had never heard of! They envisioned rebel infested jungles at every turn. And the thought of me being susceptible to snakes, crocodiles, scorpions and a various array of insects sent them into a incoherent and somewhat amusing frenzy, I am so glad I did not heed their unwarranted objections.
What I found in Placencia was simply, Paradise. A warm and caring people and an unsurpassed tropical haven. I have traveled to several tropical destinations and I have never found such beauty. I chose Placencia because of its proximity to the Reefs and The Rainforest and my limited amount of time, only 6 days. I was not disappointed. I have never been to a place as lovely as Placencia. The people of the village are a caring, gracious and insightful people. They care for each other and their beautiful surroundings."

It's all about fashion!!!!!!!!!!

Fashion, a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing, foot wear or accessories. Fashion references to anything that is the current trend in look and dress up of a person. The more technical term, costume, has become so linked in the public eye with the term "fashion" that the more general term "costume" has in popular use mostly been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or , while the term "fashion" means clothing generally, and the study of it.

Where I wish to pursue my Bachelor's Degree- Galen University

Belize packs a lot of diversity into its six Districts which include hundreds of islands which make up the world’s second largest barrier reef. There are also great rainforests and jungles, mountains, caves, savannahs, rivers, lagoons. Belize was an English colony, known as British Honduras, and become an independent country in 1981. It is governed as a parliamentary democracy, and is rarely discussed in the world news, which is why the tourism bureau calls it "the Mother Nature’s best kept secret". Agriculture is the #1 industry in Belize, with sugar cane, citrus and bananas leading the list. Tourism is the second largest business in the country. Tourists flock to the coast for the water and reef activities, the rainforests and mountains for eco-tours, bird-watching, butterfly tracking, hiking, exploring Maya ruins, and much, much more.
Cayo is the largest district and where Galen University is located. It is on the western border of the country and has the most diverse terrain of all the districts. There are approximately 40,000 people living in Cayo, primarily in San Ignacio and Santa Elena (twin towns separated by the Macal River) and in Belmopan, the nation’s capital. The nation’s population of forty nine percent Mestizo, twenty five percent Creole, eleven percent Maya, six percent Garifuna, three percent East Indian, and six percent other nationalities, is evenly reflected in Cayo. sixty percent of the Cayo District has been set aside for a National Park, Wildlife Sanctuary, or Forest Reserve.

Galen University’s success lies in the results of our efforts to play our role in the Sustainable Development of Belize. Those results are to be measured by the success of our graduates in becoming effective leaders in our Belizean society or in any other society, and in our deliberate engagement and influence in critical areas of National Development.
At the heart of our work is quality instruction in subject areas relevant to Belize’s Sustainable Development. This puts our focus squarely on providing value to our students and other stakeholders in the Belizean society. Our Mission is to provide to our students a holistic educational experience grounded in quality teaching, exposure to practical research, community service participation, personal wellness, and exciting sports; all with the aim of developing their leadership skills and empowering them to make choices that contribute to the Sustainable Development of their societies.
As a small, but fast-growing, private institution, we prefer to do a few things well and offer a select number of programs. This range of programs will be carefully expanded based on the needs of our stakeholders within the context of Belize’s National Development. The members of our Faculty, who directly deliver our courses, are committed to our Mission. Future members of our Team will be strategically identified and selected based on world-class academic and research achievements, combined with practical, international experience. We will continue to work very closely with our local, regional and international partners, and in particular with the University of Indianapolis, to fulfill our Mission.
To complement a world-class Faculty and Staff, we are developing our infrastructure to meet the growing requirements of our local and international student population. New classrooms, a multipurpose building, and sports facilities are planned for construction. Besides improving and expanding our facilities at our main campus in Central Farm, we are also reaching out to our communities to ensure that more people have access to our quality programs. In Fall of 2010 we began offering a Masters in Social Science in Belmopan and a Bachelors in Business Administration in Corozal and we are planning to deliver a similar Bachelors program for Spring 2011 in Dangriga, while we continue to offer the MBA in Belize City.
We are also embarking in Spring of 2011 on an exciting Strategic Transformation Project that will result in our new Five-year Sustainable Development Plan to be launched in July of 2011. This Plan will be developed by all stakeholders, including Students, Faculty, Staff, Administration, the Private Sector, the Public Sector, the NGO community, and our local, regional and international partners.

There's a fuel ship in port - which means the price of gas should be changing at midnight tonight. These days with all the upheaval in the Middle East, "changing" always means "going up." And this increase was going to be killer: as much as one dollar and twenty cents per gallon.
But it's not going to be; consumers are finally getting a break on the cost of gas at the pump - and it's a big break. In today's budget speech the Prime Minister announced that the government will give up a million dollars in revenue so that instead of spiking up - fuel will also be going down just a little. Now, it's just a one off measure - but for right now that's good enough.

Prime Minister Dean Barrow said on the news dated 14/03/11:  "There is a shipment of fuel due to day and the pump prices were to increase by about $1.20 a gallon for gasoline and $1.00 for kerosene and diesel. What government will do is as I indicated remove the GST, but for this shipment alone we will not impose the substitute import duty. We will therefore make a huge revenue sacrifice. The current price per gallon is $10.50 for premium, $10.19 for regular, $8.36 for kerosene and $9.85 for diesel. With the GST those prices would go up to tomorrow to $11.69 for premium, $11.39 for regular, $9.43 for kerosene and $10.81 for diesel. What will happen to the shipment coming in tonight - the price will go down to $10.39 for premium, $10.13 for regular, $8.36 for kerosene and $9.61 for diesel. But I have to caution Mr. Speaker that this is a onetime only gesture. When the next shipment after this arrives around the end of March it will have to be subject to the new import duty in lieu of GST. And recall that while that new regime will offer some relief by way of duties lower than the GST we will not any longer be able to avoid some massive increases due to the spiraling international price that we can't control."

So while the customary advice we give is to buy gas now before the price goes up tomorrow; in this case the advice is to wait until tomorrow to buy because the price will be going down fractionally.
The tax break on gas was given within the wider context of an overall adjustment on the tax regime governing fuel imports - which the Prime Minister explained in his budget speech.

Powerful Quake, Tsunami kills hundreds in Japan

TOKYO – For more than two terrifying, seemingly endless minutes Friday, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan shook apart homes and buildings, cracked open highways and unnerved even those who have learned to live with swaying skyscrapers. Then came a devastating tsunami that slammed into northeastern Japan and killed hundreds of people.
The violent wall of water swept away houses, cars and ships. Fires burned out of control. Power to a cooling system at a nuclear power plant was knocked out, forcing thousands to flee. A boat was caught in the vortex of a whirlpool at sea.
The death toll rose steadily throughout the day, but the true extent of the disaster was not known because roads to the worst-hit areas were washed away or blocked by debris and airports were closed.

After dawn Saturday, the scale of destruction became clearer.
Aerial scenes of the town of Ofunato showed homes and warehouses in ruins. Sludge and high water spread over acres of land, with people seeking refuge on roofs of partially submerged buildings. At one school, a large white "SOS" had been spelled out in English.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said an initial assessment found "enormous damage," adding that the Defense Ministry was sending troops to the hardest-hit region.
President Barack Obama pledged U.S. assistance following what he called a potentially "catastrophic" disaster. He said one U.S. aircraft carrier is already in Japan and a second was on its way. A U.S. ship was also heading to the Marianas Islands to assist as needed, he added.
The entire Pacific had been put on alert — including coastal areas of South America, Canada and Alaska — but waves were not as bad as expected.
The magnitude-8.9 offshore quake struck at 2:46 p.m. local time and was the biggest to hit Japan since record-keeping began in the late 1800s. It ranked as the fifth-largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and was nearly 8,000 times stronger than one that devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, last month, scientists said.
The quake shook dozens of cities and villages along a 1,300-mile (2,100-kilometer) stretch of coast and tall buildings swayed in Tokyo, hundreds of miles from the epicenter. Prime Minister Naoto Kan was attending a parliamentary session at the time.
"I thought I was going to die," said Tokyo marketing employee Koto Fujikawa. "It felt like the whole structure was collapsing."
Fujikawa, 28, was riding a monorail when the quake hit and had to later pick her way along narrow, elevated tracks to the nearest station.
Minutes later, the earthquake unleashed a 23-foot (seven-meter) tsunami along the northeastern coast of Japan near the coastal city of Sendai in Miyagi prefecture. The quake was followed for hours by aftershocks. The U.S. Geological Survey said 124 were detected off Japan's main island of Honshu, 111 of them of magnitude 5.0 or greater.
Large fishing boats and other vessels rode the high waves ashore, slamming against overpasses or scraping under them and snapping power lines along the way. A fleet of partially submerged cars bobbed in the water. Ships anchored in ports crashed against each other.
The tsunami roared over embankments, washing anything in its path inland before reversing direction and carrying the cars, homes and other debris out to sea. Flames shot from some of the homes, apparently from burst gas pipes.
Waves of muddy waters flowed over farms near Sendai, carrying buildings, some of them ablaze. Drivers attempted to flee. The tarmac at Sendai's airport was inundated with thick, muddy debris that included cars, trucks, buses and even light planes.
Highways to the worst-hit coastal areas buckled. Telephone lines snapped. Train service was suspended in northeastern Japan and in Tokyo, which normally serves 10 million people a day. Untold numbers of people were stranded in stations or roaming the streets. Tokyo's Narita airport was closed indefinitely.
Police said 200-300 bodies were found in Sendai, although the official casualty toll was 185 killed, 741 missing and 948 injured.
A ship with 80 dock workers was swept away from a shipyard in Miyagi. All on the ship was believed to be safe, although the vessel had sprung a leak and was taking on some water, Japan's coast guard said.
In the coastal town of Minami-soma, about 1,800 houses were destroyed or ravaged, a Defense Ministry spokeswoman said. Fire burned well past dark in a large section of Kesennuma, a city of 70,000 people in Miyagi.

Bibliography of Christina Milian- My favorite Female Artist

Christine Flores (born September 26, 1981), better known by her stage name Christina Milian.  She  is an American recording actress, dancer and model. She was Born in Jersey City.  Milian moved to Los Angeles when she was 13 years old, desiring to be an actress. By the age of 17, Milian had begun writing songs to help obtain a recording contract.
Milian was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, to Cuban parents Carmen and Don Flores. Named Christine MariĆ© Flores at birth, Milian changed her name and adopted her mother's maiden name in the hopes of landing a wider range of acting roles. The oldest of three sisters, Danielle and Elizabeth, she moved with her family to soon after her birth. Milian was only four years old when she showed an interest in show business,[8] and when her family realized that she was a talented actress, she became determined to pursue an entertainment career. As a child, Milian was "very imaginative and very creative", and watching television and listening to the radio became her life. They inspired her to have fun, and she convinced her parents that she "did not want to be inside the TV", although it took some time to convince them. By the time she was nine-years-old, Milian had begun auditioning with local talent agencies, shot commercials for  Wendy's, and played the lead role in the musical Annie. Milian's mother noticed her daughter's potential and moved to Los Angeles with her three daughters when Milian was 13 years old. Milian's father stayed in Maryland and divorced her mother soon after the move.
Milian describes her family as her "everything", and says that although she got along with everyone as a child, she did not have many friends. Acting at a young age, Milian says that "people knew about it. It was the talk. Even the teachers were talking about it." When Milian moved to Los Angeles, her only desire was to be an actress. She always wanted to be in the recor business, but did not know how to obtain a recording contract. After living in Los Angeles for six months, Milian moved into the same apartment complex as songwriter and producer. Jerkins heard about Milian from a boy band he was working with and once he heard her sing, they began working together. For a year and a half, Milian went into a studio everyday and worked with Jerkins, which is where she started meeting people in the record business. She began writing songs at the age of 17 because she needed a demo to help her obtain a recording contract. According to Milian, every time she recorded a song, the producer would refuse to give her the demo, or would write lyrics that she did not agree with. She felt that she had to write a song, record a demo, and send it out on her own.
