THE ART OF COMPETING.
By Nilse González Jaramillo
Engeneering student
The dictionary tells us that a competition is a contest for some prize, honor, or
advantage, a struggle for victory or superiority. For me, competing goes further
than simply looking to be better than others, it implies seeking to be better than
yourself.
During a competition you can compare your skills to others’, improve them or
even discover them! Let me tell you my own story. I never pictured myself as a
public speaker, but it was in my first high school semester at a PREPA-R-ARTE
contest that I realized I wasn’t really bad at it. And even though I didn’t enter
the contest willingly (because it was obligatory) it turned out to be a good experience that I repeated the following year (this time because I wanted to). I
didn’t win a prize (well, maybe a third or second place) but I won something
better, the understanding of one single (but very important) thing: It doesn’t
matter if you win or you lose, sometimes you win more as a loser than as a
winner, I mean look at me, I discovered a talent I didn’t know I had.
I would like to say that my mother always told me “winning isn’t everything” (that would give a touching mood to my words) , but I can’t because she never did, that was something I learned by myself. Don’t repudiate a defeat, embrace it!, and take the best of it, sometimes a defeat
is a step for something greater, a warm-up stage if you will. There’s a song I love that says “you got to lose
to know how to win” how true it is! Someone who has always been a winner won’t accept defeat easily, but
someone who has lost will surely know how to be a winner.
And… how to be a good winner? Well, I’m not perfect to tell you how to deal with a victory, I, myself, find it
hard to do, I’d just like to tell you two things: first of all, don’t feel more than the others just because you
won, “au contraire” be humble enough to recognize the effort of those who didn’t and second of all, don’t
take victory as a guarantee that you are the best, but as a motivation to improve your skills even more. One
more thing, if you have the opportunity to compete at something, do it! You’ll never regret it, trust me, I

MEMORIES AND FRIENDS FOR

PREPA-R-TE 2013

The
one of the best anecdotes I have, was when I got
Everything was so unexpected, we couldn’t believe
that we passed to the final round, my friends and I
were so nervous about it and when our teacher gave
us the news that we were going to Mexico City, we
got excited!
In Mexico City we participated in a debate competition. Our opponents were really good, that’s why we
sometimes felt insecure, we didn’t think we had a
chance to win. For this reason, I felt so sad and frustrated knowing that we could lose; fortunately my
mates of the male team pushed me to try my best.
The judge took three days to give the decision, during
these days we went shopping and celebrated my best
friend’s birthday at our hotel. We had such a great
time that we forgot our worries and bad thoughts
about the final result. After this time we got the final
results and it was so surprising for all of us, (even for
our teacher!), because our dream came true, we won
the first place. It was an amazing feeling that I can’t
even describe, because we had been working so hard
for it, our main goal was to achieve it.
This anecdote is something extraordinary and I’ll
never forget it because of the great times and beautiful moments that I spent with my friends.

took place in Mexico City. I’m going to start talking
about how this story changed my life.
last 14th. and 15th.
The high school students presented their projects (on areas such as: Spanish,
English, Maths, Sciences and Business) in order to
get the opportunity to represent our High School
in the PIBA contest next year. Through PIBA,
(International Prize of Anahuac´s High-Schools)
Anahuac’s high schools look to integrate the student’s creativity and vision in original projects,
where they combine their theory knowledge and
skills to develop them. This year, the students
(male and female) had the opportunity to participate in one or more of the different categories
such as: poetry out loud, declamation, literature
works –short story or poem-, all these in English
and/or Spanish language. There were also artistic
categories like: Musical interpretation and composition. I couldn’t omit traditional categories like:
Sciences and Math.
The language department and the language
teachers supported the high school department in
all the English categories. The teachers selected
the best creations and stimulated them to participate and do their best. Being a judge in the contest was a great experience, because you can see
the magnificent work and progress of your students. The winners will be announced in November!

THE MADMAN
By Rosa Elena López Gutiérrez
Foreign Language student
Salvador Dali is a renowned surrealist artist. He’s my favourite artist. I assume it has something
to do with his controversial works of art and lifestyle. How many Italian and French artists have
we read about in school? Most of them came from a middle-class family and became talented artists’ protégées; in a way I feel they share the same background. Why haven’t we studied someone more interesting… different?
Well, as much as I’d like for Dalí to be totally unique and different, he can’t be so in every possible
aspect. He is Spanish like Pablo Picasso. He’s multitalented and incredibly curious and religious
like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
There was a TV show in the fifties called “What’s my line?” which ran from 1950 to 1967. In this
show a famous person would be invited and the panellists had to guess who he was by asking yes
-no questions. Some of the most famous guests to appear on the show were Walt Disney, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery, Colonel Sanders (Kentucky Fried Chicken) and Ronald Reagan.
The episode featuring Salvador Dalí shows us what an ample field of activity he took part in. During the episode Dali agreed he was an eminent character of sports, music, literature, photography, painting, sculpture, and even the film industry causing the panellists great confusion in order to guess who he was.
He is such a unique being that most people can recognize him by simple sight, because he used to fashion a long and ever-changing moustache. He might as well have one of the most iconic moustaches ever
to exist. There’s a great photo of him showing off a moustache
adorned with little flowers at the ends. You can also read about his
blue armpits and him wearing red geraniums on his head. We often
don’t stop to think about this very much, but do you wonder why he
did these things?
LOVE
My beloved eccentric artist was deeply in love with his wife Gala. She was not only his muse, but
also of her former husband Paul Éluard. They all met when Dalí was commissioned to paint for
Paul Éluard in 1929, legend says he immediately straightened up his elaborately planned look to
better appeal Gala. He was 10 years younger than her, and forever in love with her. Since 1930
he started to sign his paintings with both of their names. He once said: “It is mostly with your
blood, Gala, that I paint my pictures” Did you know Dalí designed the Chupa-Chups logo?, Did you
know he worked for Disney?, Did you know The Simpsons made a tribute to him?, Did you know
he appeared in an Alka-seltzer and a Lanvin chocolate commercial?

GUATEMALA IS A WONDERFUL PLACE.
By Almicar Daniel Plaza Méndez
Engeneering student
Many people think that Guatemala isn’t a nice place but that’s
not right, Guatemala is a beautiful place. There are many things
people don’t know about Guatemala, this is a very touristic city
with lots of nice places, near the city of Guatemala we can find
a town called “Antigua”, this town makes honor to its name,
and it’s a very old and very calm place. In this town you will find
very few cars, that’s because almost all of the streets are closed
for people to walk and enjoy the town.
There is also a community called “Rio Dulce.” In this place you can only
move in boats. It’s a big river where you will find all the houses at riverside. It’s a gorgeous place where you can relax, go fishing or skiing and
enjoy a good time with your family or friends. There is also a place

MY SUMMER VACATION

Everything started six months ago, when I received the email
from
the
school
inviting me to go to Canada for the summer and I made the
decision to go and started doing the paperwork in order to get
my visa, contact my host family and school. Then I flew to Toronto,
to be honest I didn’t know anything about this country I
was traveling to the unknown and it was amazing! I went
to the KGIC, there are great teachers, I learned a lot
there but the best wee the afternoons and weekends with my new
friends. We had a daily activity, since we could go to the CN Tower, go to nightclubs (you
know so we can practice the skills learned at school), ride rollercoasters, visit Toronto Island
where you can relax or rent a bike. It’s worth it.
I also went to Ottawa it’s a beautiful place and it has a replica of the Big Ben. Montreal has a
beautiful view and a replica of Notre-Dame. The Niagara Falls where I enjoyed every second
in the mist of the Niagara. Nearby, in New York City you’ve got Times Square, Central Park,
Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. Quebec is a place I will go back to. I fell in
love with terrace of Dufferin. Toronto is safe city and you can move by the TTC, it’s working
24/7, you have to be prepared for the weather, though. In the morning it’s rainy, in the afternoon it’s warm but in the night it’s cold. My host family was nice to me. It was a memorable trip and I have great memories and new friends, even though they are from different
places we are planning to see each other in Mexico because our country is a wonderful place, but

LA BELLA ROMA
By Diana Domínguez Rodríguez
Foreign Language student
This summer I went to Italy to study Italian, and I took a course in Rome. Well,
I also went to London and to Barcelona before this, but the place I want to talk
about is Rome. We have all Heard about the “clichés” about Italy; the pizza and pasta, the hot Italian guys,
the Coliseum, the Vatican, etc. But I didn’t really know what to expect (as sometimes things are said different
to the reality or depending on the perception of each person).
I traveled alone and without knowing the language and just with the address of the house I was going to
stay at. Somehow, I managed to get to the house with Elena (my Italian mom now), and I met two girls from
Brazil that were going to stay in the same house for the same month too.
Fortunately one of this girls, Nara, knew a little bit of English and asked her everything around there (as she
arrived with Marina some days earlier).
Well, every morning I took the metro to school with them and came back in the afternoon after the
“passeggiata” or for lunch (most of the times in a Trattoria which is cheaper than a restaurant and has really
good and traditional food). They are really nice girls, and I’m so happy I had the luck to meet them.
The school is really good. Its name is Dilit and belongs to the International House’s chain. If you want, you
can ask the person in charge of the exchange programs here at IEST (the school gets a discount). So, I did
my cultural and non-cultural job. In the evenings or after lunch, I went to every museum or cultural spot I
found: Piazza Spagnia, Piazza Venezia, Colosseo, Musei Vaticani, Fontana de Trevi, etc.
During the nights, you can do a lot of things also; from going out for dinner up to clubbing. I made some
friends (especially Spanish speakers), which liked to go out every single night; and although some places
were closed for the summer, we always found something to do or somewhere to go.
During summer, the prices are high in food, drinks and entertainment,
but I think that everything is worth it. Besides, you can find a lot of
stores on sale, so that kind of balances the expenses.
I had a great time and made a lot of new friends there. I think I was
lucky to be there that month and with that people. However, everything
gets to its end and I’m back home, back to school, missing a lot my
friends and “il accento italiano”.

VIVE INTERNACIONAL
By Adriana Méndez Ramírez
Like every year since 2011 the Foreign Affairs Department at IEST organized in September the well-know
event called “Vive Internacional”. This event promotes international and globalized perspectives, such as
study possibilities at foreign universities and language schools around the world where IEST has exchange
agreements. On the third edition of “Vive Internacional”, the program had a large variety of conferences of
exchange students from different countries like: Colombia, Brazil, Turkey and France; there were also interesting competitions like a “Marathon”, where students from different careers had the chance to participate
answering 10 questions about general and regional culture. The judges Mr. Daniel Bustos, Ms. Aura Londoño
and Ms. Adriana Méndez participated representing the different departments and supporting the organization
of Vive internacional 2013.
Marathon´s participants and “DDR” Team.
In the first edition of this contest, the team “DDR” placed first, and in second place the team “Amigos por
siempre”. All the participants had fun and were proud to demonstrate
their general knowledge. During the entire week, the Language Department in charge of Mr. Alfredo Castillo participated alongside the
Foreign Affairs Department supporting events like: “Talk about the
China experiences” by the exchange students: Iris Marroquín Le-
dezma, Andrea Vega Cienfuegos and Ricardo Villalobos Guerrero. It
was a very interesting talk about their one-month residence in China.
The audience showed enthusiasm in the talk through interesting
questions and comments.
12
On the final day of this amazing event, the Idiomas Anáhuac I class, the German Language I students together with the Language Course and the foreign languages students, presented the “German exhibition”.
This exhibition consisted in the student´s participation divided in 7 teams, where they designed their own
stand according to their perspective and influence of the German on the actual student life and future professional life. The stands were attractively decorated and each team organized their vision in a fantastic way.
It was very interesting to observe the creativity in every particular idea, through decoration, costumes, souvenirs, videos, colors, food and information.
Some of the teams made theirs presentation in
German, English and Spanish; the judge evaluated them using a chart with specific guidelines,
which the team had to cover before and during
the exhibition. With a final score of 187 points,
the team number 3 integrated by:
Jessica
Franco, Ana Maria Ramírez Loiza, Ruth Pulido,
Carlos García and Antonio Galván was awarded
first place. Congratulations!
Germany Exhibition´s Winners
with Mr. Alfredo Castillo and Mr. Daniel Bustos
Every semester grows the interest for the German language and culture, for this reason, the Language Department organized a conference “Talking about Germany”, where students and teachers had the opportunity
to know specific information about: Germany and their politicians, work and study possibilities, legal procedures to apply as student in Germany, benefits as student and in the public transportation. The students expressed to be happy with our university´s exchange agreements and happier to be able to apply.

LES ÉTOILES DE L´AMITIÉ
Par: Gabriela Alejandra Vázquez Hernández
C’est très difficile de définir exactement
Le sens de <<ami>> avec mots
Donc, j’ai créé mon propre définition
Avec une comparaison
Les amis sont comme les étoiles
Et il en a trois:
Étoiles du soleil: sont les amis qui sont avec toi
Lorsqu’il y a du soleil, aux bons temps;
Mais ils disparaissent pendant la nuit, aux mauvais moments.
Je n’aime pas ce type d’étoiles.
Étoiles filantes : sont amis pour un moment.
Comme les étoiles filantes t’aident.
Ils accomplissent souhaits,
Et après un certain temps ils s´en vont.
Étoiles pures : sont les meilleurs amis
Ils sont avec toi pendant la journée et la nuit,
Ils s’allument dans les mauvais temps.
Ils te soutient dans ces moments d’obscurité
Ils t’accompagnent fidèlement.
Ils te disent la vérité.
Une étoile pure est unique.
Une étoile pure est une véritable amie.

UN ACCIDENT PARTICULIER
Par: Selene Vanesa Luna Juárez
Je me rappelle très bien de ces années de ma vie desquelles le football était une des meilleures
choses pour moi. J’avais à peine 12 ans quand j’ai entré au secondaire et j’ai accepté faire partie de
l’équipe féminin de ma classe. Sincèrement, le football n’avais jamais attiré mon attention jusqu’à
j’étais là. Nous avons commencé l’entraînement et quelques semaines après le tournoi scolaire a
commencé. D’ailleurs, j’étais la gardienne de but de l’équipe et j’étais plus petite qu’actuellement.
Tout allait bien, nous gagnions quelques matchs, nous égalisions d’autres et nous perdions rarement. En fait, nous avons gagné le match de nôtre division (matinée), alors il manquait seulement
jouer contre l’équipe du soir. Nôtre équipe était très unie, les filles jouaient très bien et j’ai essayé
d’arrêter la majorité des buts. Tout allait parfaitement bien jusqu'à ce que le match final est arrivé et
cela a changé tout. Le match a commencé et la vérité est qu’il était très disputé ; les autres filles
étaient plus hautes que nous et ça nous a fait grande peur.
Soudainement, une fille avait le ballon et elle se dirigeait vers moi pour marquer le but, donc j’ai fermé les yeux et quand je les ai rouverts j’ai vu que j’avais arrêté le ballon mais ma main s’avait cassé. Sans le vouloir, la fille a donné un coup de pied très fort qu’elle a cassé mon poignet totalement.
Ensuite, mes copains et le professeur de sport m’ont assistés et m’ont transporté à l’hôpital. À la fin,
nous avons gagné le 2º place par défaut mais bon, je peux dire que je m’ai cassé la main en sauvant un match de football.

LE MEILLEUR VOYAGE DE MA VIE
Par Elisa Reséndiz
Bonjour! Je m'appelle Elisa et j'étude des langues étrangers. Je vais les raconter la meilleure expérience de ma vie: le premier concert du rock que j'ai vu. Oui,
je suis une femme qu'aime la musique heavy métal, et aussi
des voyages. Le 2e et 3e novembre de l'année dernière, mon
petit ami et moi avons décidé d'aller à la ville de Mexico pour
voir le groupe Slayer et en tour on pourrait visiter quelques
endroits.
J’ai oublié que mon petit ami m’a payé le voyage comme un cadeau pour mon anniversaire, et nous
aviez tout prévu mais… Je n’avais pas demandé la permission à ma mère ! De Toute façon elle a dit
oui ! (j’ai été chanceuse). Nous sommes allés le 31 octobre à 22h00 en bus avec d'autres personnes
qui sont allées au concert aussi, mais on ne pouvait pas dormir car on était très excités !
Quand nous sommes arrivés, nous étions autorisés de manger où on
voulions dans le centre de la ville. On a choisi un petit lieu qu’était près
du Palais des Beaux-Arts. Roger a mangé une quesadilla large, et c’est
moi qui ai mangé une gordita.
Après, on est allé au nouvelle Arena
México et j’ai acheté beaucoup de souvenirs du concert : un affiche, un
chemisier et une tasse. Puis, le concert a commencé avec une groupe du
Mexique qui s’appelle Resorte ; on a vu aussi Cavalera Conspiracy, et
Mastodon. C’est vrai que le meilleur groupe c’est à la fin mais tous ont
été très fantastique ! Tout le monde criait et chantait ; j’ai pleuré de l’excitation quand Slayer a chanté ma chanson préférée.
Quand le concert a fini, on a dormi dans un hôtel près du socle pour se recharger. Le jour suivant
était le jour d morts, et une tante de Roger qui habite ça, elle nous a donné un tour par la ville, et
aussi par Coyoacán, c’est une zone de style colonial traditionnelle très célèbre pour l’exposition des
autels et des choses qui concernent à cette journée. On mangé dans un restaurant ça et dans le
nuit nous sommes revenus à Tampico.
16
C’est un petit voyage, je sais, mais je suis très heureuse d’avoir
connu un de mes groupes préférés et des nouveau lieus, d’avoir
voyagé à une ville cosmopolite et d’avoir partagé tous ces expériences et souvenirs avec l’amour de ma vie.
