Mija, yes you can be a part of the change

The Mijas reached out to strong, powerful black women to ask a question that might not be so simple for some to understand. What does Black Lives Matter mean to you. Mija Tamieka Henry tells us what it means to her. Read More…

Mija, yes you can love whomever you want!

These past several weeks have been an eye opening experience for many of us when it comes to learning and understanding more about the social injustice black people in the U.S. have been dealing with throughout their lifetime.

The Mija project is about learning, growing and educating each other because imagine how powerful our voices can be if we are all able to use them together?!

Today we are using our voice to highlight a day in history. National Loving Day. You might see the hashtag floating around social media, but what exactly does it mean? Read More…

Mija, Yes you can take control of your health, your weight and your life.

The Mija project gives women of all ages the platform to share their stories of struggle and success in hopes of reaching out to other women who might need a little bit of encouragement themselves.

Becky Murillo Huenneke shared her story of being diagnosed with Diabetes on her Facebook page and allowed the Mijas to share it with other women who may be struggling with health issues. Here’s her story…

Mija, Yes you can cook!

Family Milkshake: Temperatures are rising and we had a future little Mija chef create a milkshake recipe that can help cool you off during this heat. This milkshake is sure to bring the FAMILY to the KITCHEN and it’s easy and safe enough for little Mijas and Mijos to do on their own, with a little help from mom and dad. Read More…

Homemade Chico’s Tacos: While many local restaurants are still offering to-go or curbside pick-up options, El Paso’s iconic Chico’s Tacos is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. It’s okay, we’re not mad about it too much because thankfully one of our Mija chefs has a homemade recipe that she let us share with all of you just in case you get that random Chico’s Tacos craving. Read More…

Homemade Pot Pie & Banana Bread: With stay-at-home orders in place for all of us, many of us are realizing that cooking is kind of relaxing and entertaining.

Mija, Yes you can work through a pandemic.

We’re all struggling to get used to this new normal of staying at home and for most of us, working from home. However, millions of workers across the country are having to risk their life and the health of their family to perform a job that is now considered “essential” for today’s society.

We spoke to two Mijas who wake up every morning and head into work thankful that they have a job but scared for the unknown. Read More…

Mija, Yes you can teach through a pandemic.

The end of a school year is special for teachers and students. It’s a time where they can look back at all they accomplished in one year!

We spoke with a Mija teacher to ask how she feels about the school year possibly ending without a face-to-face goodbye with her students, and the struggles that comes along with teaching from home while teaching her own children as well. Read More…

Mija, Yes you can work from home.

The past few weeks have been very interesting for most, if not all, of the world. The COVID-19 pandemic turned many people’s lives upside down. For those who were fortunate enough to keep their jobs, they found themselves having to learn how to work from home. We gathered a few Mijas from different career spectrums to let us in on how life is for them now that they have to work from home. Read More…

Mija, Yes you can survive Coronavirus 2020!
