I have been out of El Paso for over a month now and I'm currently in Mississippi doing an internship.

If you had told me a month ago that the news would be in its current state and that I'd want to do an editorial on anything other than the riots, I would've thought yo...

My editorials during this semester have had to do with politics and questioning authority, but I wanted to do something different to close out the semester. 

I want to talk about people becoming their best selves.

I went into the pandemic very frustrated.  

I’m graduatin...

The world is chaotic right now is the biggest understatement of the last decade, but saying that accomplishes nothing, and I want to make sure I keep these editorials focused on a key message. 

Before the pandemic was declared, I wrote that we shouldn’t trust the media...

I’d like to start by saying that the Tejano Tribune is back and we’re more motivated than ever to bring you stories through our online publication, and I want to thank you for your continued support. 

I’d also like to say that my last editorial did not age well.

The Coronavirus has struck fear into millions since reports of it started coming out in February, and the Tejano Tribune ran a poll asking if people were worried.  

From interviews we conducted with students, it seemed as if people thought the Coronavirus was being over...

There is a uniqueness of the U.S. among other countries dominating the world stage, and sadly, the failings of civic education has meant a trend towards submission to the state.

The U.S. is defined by a rebellion, and that rebellious attitude made the U.S. a shining lig...

I recently had the pleasure of attending a forum held at UTEP, put on by the Texas Tribune.  

The most interesting panel of the day was “Educating the Next Generation.”

The panel was moderated by Texas Tribune CEO, Evan Smith, and featured President of EPCC, William Serr...

This is Andres Carrillo, writing to you as the new editor of the Tejano Tribune.

For the next semester, I will be writing a series of editorials where you as readers will gain insight into the way I perceive the world we live in.  

I am also going to work on providing re...

After working for the Tejano Tribune for about a year, I will be graduating and no longer be here to ‘clap back’ at the issues affecting our world.

While I will no longer be at EPCC I commit myself to continue working as a seeker of truth and an activist that stands for...

Our world is changing at a fast pace because of human interference, it is important for the government to regulate global warming and keep the laws that protect our wildlife. 

Over the course of recent years there have been laws made to protect our environment as contam...

In reference to Oct. 2 column,  "Yeet Trump out of presidency"

I am proud and privileged to know that journalism exists and prevails in our school.

Freedom of the press is written in the foundations of American society, upheld in the first amendment along with speec...

As a barista I have had many experiences with customers. Since 2016, I have developed the skills to guess what the customer would enjoy.

When a customer gets to my counter and they don’t know what to order, my first question to them is if they are craving something crea...

From the camps in Tornillo that housed thousands to the mass shooting Aug. 3 that left 22 dead and dozens injured in a racist attack. 

Journalists and storytellers from around the nation have amassed in our area to cover the recent events that have made our community th...

The music industry got back one of its most famous artists of recent years, I’m talking about Selena Gomez.
She is loved my many, yet it seems like just as many also hate her.

There is no doubt that this singer has launched success after success.

Four years she released...

In reference to Oct. 23 column, "Yes, I'm 25 years old, let me be a kid"

I disagree with your article, “Yes, I’m 25-years-old, let me be a kid.” 

At 25 years old, you are no longer a kid and, by that age you should be a responsible adult, while either furthering your ed...
