Launching the International Day of Latina Gratitude on October 15, 2013 as an official clausura to Latino Heritage Month as an annual event is MY BIG IDEA. I want to bring Latinas everywhere together to raise our collective voices of GRACIAS y BENDICIONES and to help us connect as a talented group of women who are changing the world, one gratitude, one thank you, one appreciation at a time.
I want to attend the ELLA Leadership Institute because I have been impressed with the Latina Leadership Network and the ELLA Leadership Institute and the work that Angelica Perez has done in pulling together an AWESOME, POWERFUL group of Latinas and I want to connect and align my cause with their causes. Many of them are online friends or cyber amigas or social media acquaintances or comadres en el internet- that have the same drive, ambition, and motivation that I have. I love that many of them have a social justice calling that is deep and profound. We are all fighting the same fight, we are all speaking on the same issues, we are all concerned about our children, other people’s children and the plight of mother earth.
This AMAZING group of women resonates with my very core and my projects, International Latina Gratitude Day, Reclaiming Your Divinity: las posibilidades son infinitas, the Latina Millionaire, and Pitching Your Passion and Marketing Your Spirit. I launched my business, Roots y Wings, on September 1, 2013 as a way of celebrating my life, giving back to the community that has supported me for so many years and through so many trials, paying it forward to those who are following their dreams, and supporting our communities in any way I can. My projects are focused on personal and professional development for Latinas and I welcome the opportunity to work with such talented and soulful Latinas who tend to resonate with ELLA and have made it the organization it has become.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to getting to know the many AWESOME Latinas in the organization and further its vision and mission, as Latinas every where raise their collective voices and become the change we wish to see in the world.
