#esquefam the weirdest and craziest gangstas around! Who are we??? #Esque! What do we do??? (We all know my answer to that ;D)
Little do people actually know, let alone understand, the daily accomplishments some of my closest endure and triumph.
We live in a social media whirlwind mostly derived of “accomplishments” such as the meal they’re consuming at the moment, the workout regime they’re adhering to, or even the trivial tribulations of any relationship.
I have the pleasure and honor of being around true superheroes.
Did you know, there are people who ARE Jacks of all trades AND King of Many??
To break down the metaphor, it is believed that if you are good at so many things, you can’t possibly have enough time or talent to be the BEST at even one of those things. I have to beg to differ.
Prime example: my sister, Kayla Mallari.
Girl is always hungry because she keeps her plate full! She dances in two union shows in Disneyland, meaning most hours of her week are spent entertaining at the happiest (busiest) place on earth. She directs and choreographs for a recreational hip hop team. Which means all the rest of her hours in her week are spent with non-professional dancers, whom with her guidance, you would never know this team was not paid for their talents. Along with that, she’s the costumer for every single person. SHE. MAKES. 30. COSTUMES. FROM. SCRATCH. Unpaid. And on top of that, she mixes the music and far better than any DJ that has graced the infamous club I work at currently. Covering all that, she just bought a new house and actually knows realty jargon so as not to be blindly and naively purchasing something she can just afford.
And right now, between shows at Disney, she is cutting and mixing music for my club. Like it’s just another day at the office. Everything she does, even at her worst, is better than everyone else’s best.
What does one call that?
Crazy? Yes. Insanity? Of course. Genius? Undoubtedly.
But one word I believe best describes this person.
You’ll never find someone more genuinely elated than when she is working, inspiring, helping those in need without needing it in return, and also being the biggest cheerleader of those she believes in. She will stand behind you, as if she were just that small piece that holds up the easel, with little air that she herself is the Mona Lisa.
I’m sure we live amongst many superheroes. They go unnoticed because we only see them when we need them. Patience is rarely paid to a superhero.
So be kind. You’re not the only life they’re saving.

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.”
