2016 Advocate of the Year

“Today,  I was honored to receive the Advocate of the Year by Latina Style Magazine, a national publication  focused on Latina Business Women and Entrepreneurs. Latina Style Magazine is the most influential publication reaching the contemporary Hispanic woman.

As I reflect on the meaning of this distinction, I realize this is a great opportunity to inspire and encourage Latinas, immigrant women who like me came to United States thinking that the American dream had no gender and no race that we could do it because we simply can, because we are women and because we are Latinas.

“We are not one woman. We are every woman. We are who they will follow, so we have a responsibility to them to lead the way.”
