Double issue 2017

Letter from the Editors

Robin Bridges and Jacklyn Nowotnik

Bienvenido a todos, Welcome everyone!

This edition of Que Ondee Sola is a double issue that is very near and dear to us. It is dedicated to our Afro-Latino community and to Latinas. QOS has historically honored African-American history month through its Afro-Latino issue and Women’s HERstory month through the Latina issue, and this is a tradition we are proud to continue.

This edition features two covers, one on the front and one on the back, each commemorating the themes in our double issue. We are extremely proud to display these covers as they are original artwork from QOS staff members, another tradition that QOS has featured in its past. The beauty of this issue represents our commitment to promoting Latinx talent, interests and community leaders.

We hope that you enjoy reading our issue as much as we have enjoyed putting it together, but we also hope this inspires you to come share your talents with us as a staff. We are always eager to grow in ideas, staff and dedication.

As we begin to plan for our next issue, we would like to thank the contributing writers that helped make QOS amazing and look forward to featuring more of your writing. We would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the NEIU media board and our advisors for supporting us as we continue on with our issues and event planning.

Gracias a todos, thank you all

Your Editors-in-Chief

Robin Bridges and Jacklyn Nowotnik
