Why did you join TeamWomen and what keeps you involved?
I joined TeamWomen because I wanted to be part of a network of women who I can learn from and be inspired by. I was also attracted to the leadership development opportunities available to all members and the different capacities in which I could serve alongside other amazing women.
What inspired you to launch Latina Youth Leadership Academy (LYLA)?
LYLA was inspired by the need to have a culture-driven program for my own two daughters. Eleven years ago, I was looking for a program that not only provided leadership opportunities but reflected aspects of the Latino culture — and had role models that showed the way and possibilities of a bright future for our Latino youth. I did not find one at the time, so I created one for them. My two daughters were the inspiration for this non-profit that now serves Latino boys and girls across the metro area.
What are 3 things you’ve learned on your career journey?
- Be your authentic self in all you do and don’t be afraid to go after your dreams. Living the life we were created for can be the most rewarding experience.
- Look for a way to give back to your community by investing in the next generation of leaders. They are the ones who will be making decisions for us in the near future.
- Be adaptable to change and open to possibilities.
What can women do to support other women around them, professionally and personally?
Women can support each other by celebrating their accomplishments, providing direct feedback, making sure their ideas are heard, and encouraging everyone to share their stories with others. Being supportive means being a mentor or sponsor, and sharing your keys to success so others can win in life and their careers.
