Ytzel McDaniel is a high school senior and teen reporter intern for Latinitas Magazine. As an intern, she writes articles for the magazine, creates blogs and produces multimedia projects for our website. She volunteers at the local animal shelter, the El Paso Zoo and community clean-ups. She is also involved with Skills USA, DECA and Key Club. After graduating from high school, she plans to continue her education to receive a masters degree and become a reporter.

Why did you join Latinitas? A good friend of mine interned with Latinitas. She enjoyed it so much and she encouraged me to give it a try. I truly enjoy the friendly atmosphere in the office and how welcoming Marisol and the girls have been.

Why is a program like Latinitas important? Growing up is hard especially with television and magazines feeding young girls 'what they should be.' An organization that promotes self confidence is incredibly important. I hope to gain experience mainly as well as find out if journalism is the correct major for me when I go to college.
