This Latino Created Two Different Facebook Accounts After His Mom Added Him

“It’s My Duty to Give Back”

The worst notification you can receive on Facebook is the one that tells you your mom wants to add you. Ugh, just thinking about everything she’ll be exposed to and all the comments she’ll want to leave is cringeworthy. Javier Arevalo, 25, from Berkeley, Calif., received this nightmare of a request from his parents. Luckily, he has figured out a way to keep his social presence while tricking his parents, who live in Los Angeles, into believing they know everything he’s up to. Genius ?. But off social media, Javier is also doing some pretty great things. Check out how he’s making sure Latinos stay on the right track to kick ass in college.
