Walking in heels for assault awareness

Guest speaker Tanya Brown shares that domestic violence isn’t only physical. YVONNE VILLASENOR Staff Writer

Men traded their shoes for high heels on Saturday morning for Love Thy Neighbor Philanthropic Society’s “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event at La Palma Park in Anaheim. The internationally recognized walk brings awareness to rape, sexual assault and gender violence by having men tread a mile in women’s heels. Kathy Sabroso, founder of Love Thy Neighbor, started the organization five years ago. As a survivor of domestic violence, she said she is driven to help women and children any way she can. Love Thy Neighbor’s mission is to provide women with a safe, positive environment in which they can be self-sufficient and confident. They empower women and children affected by domestic violence through self-esteem, bullying and self-development programs. Their ultimate vision is to gather enough donations to open a women’s shelter in Orange County. “2020 is our goal to open a women’s home because of the fact that I know that there’s not enough shelters. There’s not enough centers for women to go once they decide to leave their situation, their abusive relationships. We need more homes for them and their children. I have that in my heart

to be able to provide that,” Sabroso said. One in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience some form of violence in a relationship, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The website also

reports that over 20,000 calls are made to domestic violence hotlines throughout the country. Every year, 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence and of those children, 90% witness it. Lt. Willie Triplett of the

Anaheim Police Department and Orange County Family Justice Center said in a presentation that domestic violence statistics can be inaccurate, considering they only account for reported cases. Triplett also said how violence

is a learned behavior starting during childhood. “If we could get to the kids and work with them on that violence isn’t appropriate, that there are other ways to handle anger issues, other ways to handle bullying, other ways to be a good community member, then we will be able to resolve and help resolve this problem of violence that our society is facing,” Triplett said. Guest speaker Tanya Brown gave a speech regarding the loss of her sister, Nicole Brown Simpson, the seven characters of abuse, and healthy means of coping that she wrote about in her book, “Finding Peace Amid Chaos: My Escape from Depression and Suicide” “Silence killed my sister,” Brown said. The seven characters of abuse were created to show that domestic violence is more than physical abuse — it’s emotional and psychological too. They include the jealous stalker, the mind-game player, the isolator, the emotional robber, the money monitor, the pseudo parent and the silent knight. “It’s up to us to take the message that we are getting here today; share it with your community, share it in your workplace because domestic violence does not just stay at home. It follows you to work, it follows you to the laundromat, it follows you to the dry cleaners, it follows you to school. It doesn’t stay at home,” Brown said. SEE MEN 6

Alyssa Avila, a violence prevention educator of the center, and Tal Jin, violence prevention peer educator, led the presentation and discussionn about topics pertaining to rape culture. The presentation defined rape culture as an environment in which rape is prevalent, normalized and excused, a society or environment whose prevailing social attitudes have the effect of trivializing all forms of sexual violence. Avila said rape culture and sexual violence is important for college students to discuss. “They’re going to be the folks creating change in our communities and leading our communities, so it’s important for them to understand how these dynamics are happening in our

Workshop teaches mood wellness Skills taught include regulating emotions and life balance. YVONNE VILLASENOR Staff Writer

Cal State Fullerton Counseling and Psychological Services scheduled nearly 40 wellness workshops this semester regarding stress, mood, thought and sleep.Students can learn how to enhance their well-being, manage a range of emotions, increase stress-management and sleep hygiene skills. Yesterday, Frank Wang, a doctoral intern counselor, delivered a presentation on mood wellness, understanding emotions and developing skills to increase positive emotional experiences. Learning to regulate emotions in ways such as taking care of your body and adding positive activities like going for a walk, drawing or eating a favorite meal are all beneficial to students struggling with their physical and emotional health according to the Wellness Workshop packet handed out to attendees. Students can manage difficult emotions by executing an opposite action of what they are typically used to according to the packet. For example, if a student feels sad, their preferred action may be to withdraw themselves. By performing the opposite action, like surrounding themselves with others and increasing their activity, they are capable of changing their emotions according to the Wellness Center. “S.T.O.P.P.” is an approach that helps students to be conscientious of what they are feeling and to identify a healthier response. It encourages them to stop, take a breath, observe, pull back, look at it from a different perspective and to practice what works best for them. Wang emphasized the steps

toward letting go of emotional suffering. In order to do so, students must know that they are not their emotions, but must acknowledge them and accept them and understand that emotions are like waves. Wang said students should know about the wellness workshops to gather awareness and

have tools for coping when they are feeling poor emotionally. “Here, we help them to realize what may be the cause of their struggle and also how to identify their struggle and develop skills to manage their emotional struggles. It could be a reminder for some students to seek out support, to do the things they’re already doing,

but for some students, could be a new learning experience about a coping skill that’s more adaptive that they can adapt into their life,” Wang said. Kevin Jimenez, said he went to the workshop because he wanted to utilize campus resources after having an unsatisfying week. Jimenez said he learned

different approaches and mindsets that he can use throughout his life. “Cal State Fullerton provides a lot of resources and a lot of workshops throughout the whole year,” Jimenez said. “Our generation, is just more impacted with all these mental illnesses, and they should just take care of themselves.”

Fight: Students discuss sex assault 1 “Over half of all sexual assaults actually happen in someone’s home, and the majority of survivors know the perpetrator, so the perpetrator is most often an acquaintance, which makes sexual assault not only a physical violation but an emotional violation,” Jin said. Esmeralda Llerenas, an attendee, said she is passionate about educating herself about rape culture and that she enjoyed the activity because it challenged her. “I already had a pretty good basis of the topic. This is something that I’m really passionate about, but I guess like the myths versus the facts thing, there were some that were a little bit tricky,” Llerenas said. Avila stated that one reason myths like this one are prevalent is due to the media. “It gets reposted and perpetuated, and it’s just fueling the myth, and what happens is the myth gets totally supported that it becomes fact,” Avila said. Social media and television were also discussed as factors that contributes to rape culture. “It’s definitely one of the main ways that we see rape culture disseminated,” Avila said. The presentation not only addressed problems, but also had a call to action and solutions for how to intervene as a bystander CONTINUED FROM

that witnesses an uncomfortable situation. Jin talked about the three ways to become an upstander rather than a bystander, using a: direct, distracting and delegating approach. The direct approach involves either directly confronting the perpetrator or asking the victim if they are all right. The distracting approach creatively diffuses the situation. Finally, with the delegating approach, the upstander gets someone else to help out. Avila said standing up for victims is an essential step in changing rape culture, even though it can be scary. “We know that is intimidating. We know that there are barriers to (doing) that, but if we all remain passive, then these issues are still going to occur in our communities and more and more people are going to be affected,” Avila said. There are options to report circumstances, and confidential resources. On campus, there is the campus advocate located in the University Hall as well as Counseling and Psychological Services located in Student Wellness. These are both confidential resources. To report an issue, Cal State Fullerton offers the Title IX and Gender Equity resource located in Langsdorf Hall, the Dean of Students located in the Titan Student Union and the University Police Department.

Asian-Americans talk immigration

Heritage event shares the impact of borders on identity narratives. KAITLIN MARTINEZ News Editor

The Asian Pacific American Resource Center hosted an Asian Pacific Islander Desi American immigration narrative workshop yesterday. The workshop focused on giving historical context for immigration from India, and how colonization of the continent impacted how people from South Asia identify themselves. The keynote speaker was Shreshta Aiyar,the social justice educator lead for the center. Aiyar started the discussion by defining key terms for Desi, South Asian and Indian identity. Aiyar said the term Desi is a broad term and comes from a Sanskrit word that means land or country. “Desi is defined as people, cultures and products from the Indian sub-continent and their diaspora, so people who have left the Indian sub-continent as well,” Aiyar said. “However, throughout the 20th century, Hindu nationalism became pretty global and the term Desi can be used in a very political context to mean that you are from the borders of the Indian country.” The term South Asian refers to people that live in or are originally from the

South Asian subcontinent, which includes India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and other countries, according to Aiyar. Aiyar identifies as South Asian American. Her parents, by contrast, identify as Indian. Aiyar moved away from using that term because growing up when she said she was Indian, people would get confused between people from that country, and Native American peoples that also have been called American Indian. Graduate student Elaina Sidney, who works with the center, posed a question about the myriad of terms people use to identify as from South Asia. She said at CSUF Welcome Day she tried to explain the services the club provides to someone that visited their booth. A visitor at the event’s booth, who was older, did not understand the terms Desi or South Asian American. Aiyar said it was powerful to identify with people from an older generation likely identify as from the country that they or their ancestors lived in, because the borders for those countries were being defined during their lifetime. Sidney said she learned that not everyone uses the same term to identify that they are from the region, and that when she is in doubt to just ask what people prefer. Along with giving an

overview of the history of South Asian immigration and the evolution of identity terms, Aiyar also touched on the Rohingya Crisis in Myanmar and said it is a key event in recent South Asian history that people should be informed about. The Rohingya are an ethnic Muslim minority that live in the western part of Myanmar, Rakhine and are being forced out by the military. “There have been attacks against this community due to conflicts among rebels in the community and the government, but what it’s led to is a genocide against the Rohingya people,” Aiyar said. Over 700,000 Rohingya have fled from the violence and discrimination in Rakhine to Bangladesh, according to the United Nations. “This has been changing the way that we talked about those countries because it defines how they let people in,” Aiyar said. Freshman Omar Alnuaimi said events like these can teach students how to be respectful and supportive of other cultures. “These events really do give you a lot of perspective about the different cultures and what Shrestha talked about. These events can really open your mind and your perspective about the diversity of our campus and just of the world really,” Alnuaimi said.

Review: Sabrina’s dark side revealed ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2’ blends comedy and horror. SOPHIA ACEVEDO Managing Editor

With shocking pale blonde hair and darker magic, everyone’s favorite teenage witch, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) returns in “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2.” While the second part does a better job of developing the mystical world of Greendale and its supernatural beings, it loses some of the charm developed from the first part of the series and cannot quite keep up with everything that has already been established. Having just signed the Book of the Beast, Sabrina appears bolder and more powerful than the first half of the season, ready to channel her delightfully darker side as she unknowingly continues straight down the path of night with the devil pulling the strings. Leaving her friends almost entirely behind, she’s chosen to focus on her studies and rich culture as a witch. From trying to become top boy to celebrating Lupercalia, viewers get to experience Sabrina’s witch side through a humanistic lens instead of being reinforced with endless stereotypes. Rather than be entirely naive to her circumstances, Sabrina is more defiant against powerful male figures, such as Father Faustus Blackwood (Richard Coyle), and the dark lord himself, because she chooses to voice her frustrations of inequality. “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2” readily dives into a more cynical tone, incorporating a nice blend of comedy and horror to help provide levity when needed. Relationships continue to grow in the second part as well, which works in some cases, but falters otherwise. The relationship between

Sabrina and Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood), for instance, is endearing since it helps drive the plot throughout the episodes, and is also something that was touched upon in part one. Meanwhile, the relationship of Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) and Rosalind Walker (Jaz Sinclair) comes across as a rushed afterthought, since it became something for the viewers to suddenly accept. Harvey has interesting family dynamics and Rosalind has unique characterization, but these quirks, which could have made for a more interesting subplot, were ultimately ignored for the sake of romance. Though Sabrina’s human friends were integral and sweet in the beginning, they weren’t very important, and at times, were actually pretty boring. If it weren’t for Mary Wardwell’s (Michelle Gomez) presence, the subplots would have been entirely unnecessary. The latest installment of the series continues to build on themes of female empowerment and feminism, while also showcasing the toxic nature of male dominance that foster a sexist environment, creating a clever duality of clashing ideas for the Greendale coven. The clashing nature between Father Blackwood and Sabrina comes to a head in the final stretch, as well as Sabrina’s defiance of the devil. If viewers are patient enough, they will be rewarded in the last few episodes with an intriguing and suspenseful conclusion, which will surely keep fans intrigued for what’s in store next season. While “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” surely establishes itself as a staple during this second part for young and eager adult fans, those who are willing enough to recognize it may notice that its quality and caliber just isn’t the same as when it debuted. Hopefully for the next part, there will be some more recognition of past plot lines, and less of a focus on dead end story arcs.


‘Ice Cream Cone’ art sculpture repainted

Ice cream social brought together students and staff for painting and paletas. RIVKA PRUSS

Asst. Copy Editor

Closing out Arts Week, a boom box played classic ‘90s music as students mingled with paletas in hand, joining President Fram Virjee in repainting the “Double Scoop Ice Cream Cone” sculpture on Friday. This is the first time Virjee attended the Ice Cream Social, an annual tradition hosted by the College of the Arts, and he was given the honor of choosing the flavors and colors this year. “I know this year we really wanted him to be involved just because we knew he was new to our campus and wanted to make sure he felt involved with the College of the Arts and that his favorite flavors were taken into consideration,” said Kimberly Leyva, an Arts Week coordinator. Virjee said rocky road is his favorite flavor because the texture is chewy, which was also the flavor chosen for the bottom scoop. Virjee selected Cal State Fullerton themed flavors for the top scoop: orange sherbert and blueberry. While helping repaint the sculpture, students and faculty from the arts department and other colleges ate rocky road ice cream or paletas with flavors like tamarind and lime. Dora Corona, the retention specialist for the College of the Arts, said the event brought students together and gave them the chance to meet Virjee and interact with faculty. “It’s awesome to get out, have some time to mingle with the students, get to see them in not-soformal of a setting, and to help them build a community around their space, around their area, their college, so they feel more

connected,” Corona said. Besides free food, students received stickers, phone cases and T-shirts related to Arts Week. Sydney Ortiz, a first-time attendee, said she was excited to paint the sculpture and that it was fun to reconnect with other artists and meet Virjee. “It was great to finally meet him in person and talk to him about the arts and things I love here. He asked about what kind of improvements would you like

to see, and kind of looking for opportunities to help improve the arts for us, which is really nice to hear him listen and introduce me to his wife. I feel more acknowledged,” Ortiz said. Besides chatting with students, Virjee addressed everyone in attendance with a short impromptu speech on how he was honored to be chosen to select the new flavors. “There are representations of community and daily life in a

sculpture and an artistic sculpture is that. This is a fun and whimsical one that people see all the time, and I love the idea that they change it from time to time to reflect different flavors of life,” Virjee said. The original sculpture was rescued from the now closed Brookdale Ice Cream store previously located near the campus in the late ’60s. The first version was stolen, but in 1973, former art gallery director Dextra Frankel

found an identical sculpture. Don Lagerberg, an art professor, chose the original strawberry and mint flavors to commemorate the installation, according to the Department of Visual Arts. “It was really nice being able to see something where we are able to be a part of it, and that there is a big story behind the ice cream, and it’s a good way to get everyone together,” said Sage Carmona, an animation student.

Men: Walking in a woman’s shoes


Joe Casas, a participant, walked with his daughter Angelica Casas at the event. CONTINUED FROM 1 Prior to the walk, attendees gathered to watch “I Remember Nicole,” a music video dedicated to Brown Simpson. The song was released last year to pay tribute to her memory and raise awareness about domestic violence. Maria Cervantes, a community partnerships director at MIND Research Institute and Cal State Fullerton alumna, said she is a survivor of abuse and feels that conversations regarding the topic should be talked about and not made taboo. “Events like these are important just to bring awareness and to bring us all together, not just for women, but for men. I’m a mom of a 17-year-old male, so I want to make sure that he values himself as a man, but that

he also values the woman that he decides to be (with) and respects her,” Cervantes said. Dylan Monroy, a volunteer for the event, acknowledged toxic masculine behaviors, especially in the Latinx community. Monroy said events like “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” spread awareness and can teach children who are growing up in a bad situation that they can change their circumstances going forward. “My passion and my goal is to be able to speak more to the community like this and letting you know that it’s okay to talk about it. The only way that we’re going to break the cycles and the only way that we’re going to do something about it is having that conversation,” Sabroso said.

Graduate students shared visual masterpieces Colorful oils and acrylics exhibited at the Freedman Gallery for Arts Week. ESMERALDA FIGUEROA Staff Writer

The Department of Visual Arts held an exhibition featuring graduate students’ drawings, paintings and artwork in the Freedman Gallery as part of Arts Week last Thursday. Professor Kyung Sun Cho, who teaches drawing and painting, said the event is held every spring semester to showcase the collection of artwork that graduate students created and features a guest speaker invited through the Arts Inter-Club Council. “Currently we have about 12 graduate students in the drawing and painting area and this is the culmination of work from last year,” Cho said. “We invite prominent artists to come to campus and speak to the community, and they’re also invited to discuss and have any kind of input on the art created by the graduate students.” This year’s event featured Lita Albuquerque, an artist, as the guest speaker. She spoke to the graduate students about her work, her inspirations and what she refers to as the “subtleties of the invisible world,” which she described as taking into account everything we have and thinking about the people or the process it took to make that specific item. “She works on such a large scale and to see somebody that is processing that kind of information and then coming and giving us feedback it’s just, you don’t get opportunities like that,” said Niccole Ugay-Clavesilla, a graduate

student and instructor for painting and life drawing. The intimate gallery featured 12 art pieces hung on the walls. It was reminiscent of a “Nightmare Before Christmas” scene when Jack Skellington found himself surrounded by doors to other worlds,where each piece of art differed in style and color, offering a window into the artist’s rich inner world. Ugay-Clavesilla’s oil and acrylic piece titled, “Intuition,” is an eye-catching mix of reds, blues and yellows and a figure blended into the background. “I’m actually trying to explore the dynamic of the paint


and how it moves across the surface, and thinking a lot about color and how the color affects working in and out,” Ugay-Clavesilla said. “I’m trying to also integrate the background with the figure, it’s a lot of back and forth, it’s a new process for me.” While most of the artwork hung on the gallery walls, guests had the chance to engage directly with one of the pieces. Hadley Mattwig’s “A Detail of Another Thing” featured herself as a piece of fabric laying on a couch in the middle of the gallery. Mattwig said although there

was nothing in particular that prompted her to do this piece, she felt compelled to do something to show her physical presence in an environment and to interact with the audience. “It’s part of a larger installation about domestic space and to have a fabric version of myself in order to somehow be a participant at all times even if I myself am not physically there and kind of interaction with the viewer,” Mattwig said. Visitors were able to sit on the red couch with the fabric version of Mattwig and enjoy the surrounding windows to different realms.

Albuquerque said artists perceive the world in different ways and this shows through their art. “As artists, we’re continually registering a lot of information. I mean everybody does, but as artists, we kinda pick up on that in different ways,” Albuquerque said. The exhibition gave graduate students the opportunity to showcase finished art pieces from last year. While the exhibition, ended last week, the next drawing and painting art show in the gallery will be from April 13 to April 19.

The Catholic Church has made little progress in abolishing the trail of rampant sexual abuse of children that leads to their doorstep because they refuse to listen to the knocks of morality. Even with the recent progress from Pope Francis, who has publicly condemned the sexual abuse of children within the church and helped defrock some pedophiliac clerics, the church still fails to adequately address the issue and its magnitude — reforming canon law to stiffen the punishment for pedophiliac clerics. The number of sexual abuse cases that have been reported to the Catholic Church are buried in the depths of the Holy See’s website. A report on the activities of the Catholic Church issued in 2017, stated the highest caseload the church currently deals with is related to sexual abuse. These cases fall under an umbrella term the church calls “graviora delicta,” which translates to “more grave crime.” Of the 410 reported cases that had to do with “graviora delicta”, a majority had to deal with sexual abuse against minors. According to the Holy See’s website, crimes in this category

are treated with the utmost seriousness and prosecuted with a “special process.” But it is later stated that the penalties imposed on priests who commit such acts vary depending on the severity of the case that range from being a temporary penalty to legal punishment. The fact that the Catholic Church punishes some priests who have committed sexual assault against minors with a temporary penalty is unfathomable. The church has put an emphasis on the importance of bishops returning priests to safety and restoring them to their holy duty when sexual assault occurs, but the punishments they endure are not consistent with the safety of the real victims: the children they abuse. Benedict XVI, the former pope, recently made headlines for blaming the sexual abuse cases under the wing of the Catholic Church on the U.S.’s sexual revolution and the secular status of the west. He wrote a letter for a German-Catholic publication which claimed that the sexual revolution was responsible for the creation of “homosexual cliques” that have since influenced clerics in the Catholic Church, according to the Washington Post. The letter served as a potent example of the Catholic Church’s attempts at dodging true reform. Instead of localizing the blame to a logical reason, such as the abuse of power, the letter does nothing but vilify the sexual freedoms that came about as a result of the revolution. During the sexual revolution, people began to think of sex as a subjective experience rather than an ethical issue. The Catholic Church still thinks of


sex as an ethical issue, and instead labels truly ethical issues like the abuse of power in sexual assault cases as subjective. Priests who sexually assault minors tamper with the bodies and minds of human beings who can’t give consent. The notion that they may do so without facing any real consequences is a mark of the Catholic Church’s deliberate disregard for the benevolent principles with how they have set to influence the world. Another important factor that underscores the problem of sexual abuse of minors is that the effects frequently carry into adulthood. The Rape, Abuse and Incest National

FEATURES • Free Move-In Truck • Moving & Packing Supplies • Tenant Protection Plans

Network states that adults who have been sexually assaulted as children often struggle with intimacy in relationships, feelings of guilt and self-esteem. It only takes one encounter to have these kinds of effects on children later in life and yet it takes more than one instance for the Catholic Church to realize the harm of sexual abuse. Clerics should not be treated with special privileges when it comes to sexual assault because of their status within the church. The crime of sexually abusing of minors within the

Catholic Church has been slathered in excuses, minimal action and canon laws that counteract real reform. The severity of the problem cannot be reversed unless the church acknowledges the true source of the problem and then creates laws that restrain that. Morality has knocked on the Catholic Church’s door for too long. It’s time that they answer it with the intention to change.

Column: I escaped the ‘alt-right’ ideology I was drawn to a community where hatred thrived.

EVAN D’ASERO Daily Titan

When I awoke on March 15, I never expected to see a specter of my past coming back to haunt me on the TV. But as the news from Christchurch poured in, I was struck with a terrible realization: I had been complicit in perpetuating the same hate that caused a psychopath to murder 50 innocent people. I had to admit to myself a truth I wanted to keep buried: I was a part of what would become the “alt-right.” I’m not writing this as a form of absolution – these sins are ones only I can wash away, and only through continued acts of goodwill can I find my own forgiveness. I’m writing this so that I can save others from my fate all those years ago. Like any cult, the “alt-right” has a particular recruitment profile, and in my teenage years I just happened to fit the

bill. I was young, male, struggling socially and romantically and, most of all, I was impressionable. My gateway came via 4chan, which is basically Twitter, but with even less moderation. 4chan was and still is infested with proto-fascist ideology. I lacked a positive role model growing up, and I was desperate for acceptance. I was introduced to the site after I confided in an acquaintance about my inability to find friends or a romantic partner. What I found on the site was, in hindsight, what would become the involuntarily celibate or “incel” community today. The community mainly consisted of social outcasts, such as myself, who were experiencing varying degrees of frustration over their romantic failures. While I was not as overtly misogynistic as they were, their rhetoric infiltrated my own ideology. I soon found myself viewing society instead of myself as my oppressor, and this resentment bred hatred. With this hatred, I dug myself further into this pit of self-destruction. I began espousing some of the attitudes I would have previously scorned – racism, xenophobia, sexism and LGBTQ discrimination. I had become the monster that I believed society saw me as, when in reality, I had done this to myself. My awakening didn’t come


all at once, nor was it easy. It consisted, in large part, of losing everything – friends, social acceptance, all of it. Only when I was at the bottom of this pit of hatred did I try to crawl out. Progress was often slow, and more than once, I would take a step forward, only to fall back. I can’t narrow down a single factor that ultimately saved me, but exposure to new people, experiences and narratives helped tremendously.

Over time, my stances changed. “Facts don’t care about your feelings” became “trans rights are human rights;” “feminists suck” became “I am a feminist;” and perhaps most ironically, “God hates f*****s” became “I identify as bisexual.” Of course, this didn’t occur in a vacuum. The internet, though it facilitated my radicalization, also helped de-radicalize me. Progressive YouTube channels

like Contrapoints, Shaun and Hbomberguy presented new viewpoints in a palatable format, and Reddit communities, like the MensLib subreddit, helped reframe my previous toxic masculinity. My deradicalization continues to this day, and although I might be a progressiv, I still fall short sometimes. Every day I work to foster love, but I know from my past how much easier it is to hate.

Column: Selena impacted who I am The ‘Queen of Tejano Music’ empowers women of color.

ALYSSA LOPEZ Opinion Editor

Selena Quintanilla has proven that she can connect with people of all generations and ethnicities. She continues to be recognized by myself and others as one of the greatest artists in music. As a role model, she will have a lasting impact on my life. April 16, 2019 marks what would have been Selena’s 48th birthday. A recent bill proposed by a Texas lawmaker wants to make the singer’s birthday a state holiday. Even if this holiday is only recognized in Texas, it ensures that there is a day where people are reminded of her lasting legacy. If passed, the state holiday would serve as a way for her to reach and hopefully impact future generations in the way that she did for me.


The Texas-born singer was shot and killed by the founder of her fan club in 1995, dying at the age of 23. She had just started her transition into English-language music at the time, and “Dreaming of You,” her first all-English album, was released posthumously. While I was not yet alive to witness Selena’s music career unfold, I was about seven years old when I heard her music for the first time and watched the movie about her life.

I immediately connected with her story. She was a Mexican-American girl who only spoke English growing up. She didn’t learn Spanish until her father taught her how to sing in Spanish. At the time, that resonated with me. I wasn’t fluent Spanish and I had trouble connecting to my family and our culture. I felt almost out of place. But knowing that Selena was Mexican and didn’t know Spanish growing up instantly connected me


to her. I grew up listening to and watching artists like Britney Spears, who had white skin, blonde hair and a thin figure. While there is nothing wrong with those physical characteristics, it was just not something I could relate to. Selena was the first singer I saw who looked like me. She had dark hair and brown skin. Even at such a young age, I saw myself in who she was. Of course, probably like most

young Mexican girls, I wanted to be just like her. I was lucky enough to have an aunt closely replicate Selena’s iconic sparkling purple jumpsuit, making the most perfect Halloween costume for me. Selena was not only a woman in a male-dominated music genre, but she surpassed most men and earned herself the title of “Queen of Tejano Music.” As a little girl, Selena Quintanilla showed me that someone my gender, with my skin color and who comes from a similar background, can have an impact on the world. They can grow up to become successful in whatever version success is for that person. Growing up, I looked to her and to the strong women in my own family to show me how to be a courageous woman. Now that I am 22 years old, almost the age Selena was when she passed, I see how much of an impact she has made on not only myself, the Latino and the Hispanic community, but with so many others as well. People still listen to her music and they still care enough to talk about her. She has influenced my life and the lives of so many others. Her legacy deserves to be remembered and shared with new generations.

Three leagues lead the soccer world


Despite world wide appeal, the “beautfiul game” thrives in Europe.

KORRYN SANCHEZ Editor-in-Chief

ARNULFO GONZALEZ Asst. Sports Editor

Europe is home to some of the most popular and prominent soccer clubs in the world. The likes of David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney all ended up in Major League Soccer in the U.S., but they all came from one of the three best soccer leagues in the world: Premier League, La Liga or Bundesliga. The Premier League exemplifies the most competitive league in soccer, La Liga has the best players in the world and Bundesliga has the best support from fans during games. Premier League The Premier League is the first division in the United


Kingdom. The league is considered to be the most competitive in the world, as it has seen four different teams win the championship within the last six seasons. Teams who are in the lower half of the standings who can take out any of the top five teams. Standout teams in this circuit include Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester United FC and Manchester City FC. Manchester United has had plenty of decorated players who have represented them, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Rooney and Carlos Tevez all having worn the famous red jersey. Ronaldo took the soccer world by storm when he was playing at Manchester United as an 18-year-old. He was such a dominant player that it was only a matter of time until Real Madrid came knocking on the door and secured his services with an 84.6 million euro contract. Arsenal is the only team in Premier League history to have a gold medal when they played the entire 2004 season without losing a single game, earning them the title of “The Invincibles.” “The Invincibles” featured Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Frederick Ljungberg, Kolo Toure and Sol Campbell.

La Liga La Liga is the main league based out of Spain and is home to some of the top-ranked teams along with some of the best players in the world. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid CF, Atlético de Madrid, Valencia CF and Sevilla FC all held the league to a high standard with their huge fan support and ability to compete at the highest level in Europe. These teams are not only known for their ability to raise their homegrown players, but also their ability to bring in bigname talents. Real Madrid has maintained its competitiveness throughout the years They have continued to be competitive every generation, and has been a desired destination for many players in the prime of their careers. Dating back to the 1980s, when the likes of Hugo Sanchez and the namesake of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium were still playing. This historic lineup continued starting from the 1990s to now. Players like Raul Gonzalez and Jose Gutierrez set the stage for some of the best players to touch the pitch: Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric. While these talents are not Spanish natives, Barcelona

nurtures not just their players, but also their coaching staff. People like Tito Vilanova, Pep Guardiola and Johan Cruyff played for Barcelona and later served as coaches. Some of the biggest names in soccer history, like Lionel Messi, come from Barcelona’s youth program. Messi is complemented by home-grown superstars like Xavi Herneandez, Andes Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, Carles Puyol, Pedro Rodriguez, Jordi Alba and Serio Roberto. Barcelona and Real Madrid were the programs that opened up the European stage to players from the Americas, bringing Sanchez and Rafa Marquez from Mexico to Spain, and both Mexican-born stars, Giovanni and Jonathan Dos Santos, were brought up in the Barcelona youth program. Bundesliga Bundesliga leads Europe and the world in attendance, with some games having a crowd up to 41,000. The fans truly fuel the league in Germany and they often share their opinions on what is happening in their league. The Bundesliga shows that fan power can really take it to the next level. Fans decided that they did not like the idea of Monday night games, much

like the North American football show, and protested against it, which was so compelling that the league decided to stop scheduling matches on Monday nights. Franz Beckenbauer set the tone for defensive players all over the world. He spent his career playing with FC Bayern Munich, and began the trend in the Bundesliga for which type of players were to be a part of the league. While Bayern Munich has been the most successful team in Germany recently, Borussia Dortmund has been second fiddle. They have been growing in strength, as they currently have two of the most exciting young players in the world, Christian Pulisic and Jadon Sancho. Dortmund has a variety of large European clubs at their doorstep attempting to get coveted youth, and is also the last team that isn’t Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga championship since 2012. None of this is to say that the other leagues in Europe and in the world are unskilled. Serie A of Italy, Ligue 1 of France and even Major League Soccer of the United States are competitive and capable. Soccer is a beautiful game, and its popularity has finally reached all the corners of the world.

Putt: Titans on-par for first conference title CONTINUED FROM


Individually, CSUN junior Brianna Steger leads the field, sitting at 3-under-par 69. Steger had a strong front-nine in Moorpark, birding three of the first seven holes, and is the only player who finished under par after 18 holes. Senior Texie Petchel leads a Titan squad that has all of their golfers in the top 15, with four of them in the top eight. Petchel currently is tied for second at even-par 72. After opening the day with a birdie and a bogey through the first five holes, the UNLV transfer’s highlight of the day came on par three, 165-yard sixth hole, where Petchel sunk in a hole-in-one to get her back under par. Petchel remained in contention for the top spot in the field for much of the day until the 17th hole, where she triple bogeyed on 146-yard par three. Right behind Petchel in the standings is senior Felicia Medalla at 1-over par 73. The Filipino shot

2-over-par 38 on the front nine, but got her first birdie of the day on the 14th hole. Despite a bogey at the following hole, Medalla secured her tie for sixth place with a birdie on the 17th. In a tie for eighth place are Elsa Lundquist and Lisa Djerf at 3-overpar 75. Djerf, Big West golfer for last month, had a difficult first nine holes, going into the second half of the course 5-over-par 41. The Swede climbed back into the leaderboards, hitting three birdies on the back nine to climb back into the top ten. Courtney Sharkey rounded out the Titan squad tied for 13th at 4-over-par 76. The second round of the tournament will continue Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. The Titans will take the course along with Long Beach and CSUN at 9:10 a.m., and the event will be live streamed on Golfstat.

Jim Donovan recieved the award at the annual university awards program. JORDAN MENDOZA Sports Editor

For the recent success of Cal State Fullerton, Director of Athletics Jim Donovan was named the 2019 Titan of the Year on April 11 at CSUF’s annual University Awards program. The ceremony was held by the department of Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion. “All of us in athletics are so proud to represent the university,” Donovan said during his acceptance speech. “Thank you to our supporters, our donors and

our alumni. We will have our ups and downs … but our best days are ahead of us.” Guests were greeted with breakfast and performances by the Titan Band, and an award ceremony that included four other awards recognizing university staff for their years of service. Donovan was also one of four recipients to receive the Titan Excellence Awards. Winners were picked among 64 nominees, and included Matt Englar-Carlson, professor of counseling; Ken Moyer, information technology consultant in the Department of Online Education and Training in Academic Affairs and Tammy Rogers, graduation specialist in the

College of Communications. CSUF athletics has nearly quadrupled its annual fundraising since Donovan was hired in 2012, and the athletics department made a record of over $560,000 in ticket sales during the 2017-2018 semester along with increasing student attendance at games by over 1,200%. The graduation rates for student-athletes has also increased from 68% to 77%. Titan athletics have won 21 Big West titles during Donovan’s tenure, which includes two College World Series trips for the baseball team and three consecutive conference titles for the softball team. The six conference titles won by Titan sports programs during

2017-18, resulted in CSUF winning the Big West Commissioner’s Cup for the first time in school history. Athletic success during 2018-19 for CSUF includes the men’s basketball team reaching the Big West Tournament finals and appearing in the Tournament, which is the first time in program history that the team has made three straight postseason appearances. This past month, Donovan was named a recipient of the Under Armour Athletic Director of the Year Award, which he will receive in June in Orlando, Florida. Other awards given during the ceremony included the

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award to assistant professor of nursing Sharrica Miller for helping establish the nursing department’s first annual Diversity and Inclusion Symposium. The team of Carmen Curiel, Marlene Romero and Nick Jakel received the Teamwork and Collaboration Award for their roles in Tuffy’s Basic Needs, as well as associate sociology professor Eileen Walsh received the Leadership Award, which “recognizes a staff, faculty member or administrator who demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities, as well as motivates and inspires others to a high level of commitment by creating a compelling vision.”
