One of the first ever networking conference events I attended was Latism13 in NYC. I remember simply being overwhelmed with knowledge which was a good thing. I attended mainly because I had just opened up my own business that year and I wanted to inquire and hear about others who had more experience than me. I believe learning is essential in achieving success. At that moment I realized how important it is to surround yourself with like minded individuals. I met so many entrepreneurs and bloggers that day which was great and it provided me the positive energy I needed at the time. I am so looking forward to #Latism16
I am so happy and excited to announce that I have been selected by LATISM (Latinos in Tech innovation and social media) as a Top Influencer for 2016. Social Media has been my savior in getting my business known to others. I am so proud to be a Latina recognized as a Change Agent. I believe we all need positive role models in our lives. I enjoy being a voice for younger Latinas and encourage them to think outside the box. We can invent and become entrepreneurs and so much more. I enjoy empowering the Latino community and if I can motivate you in any way than my job is done. Thank you all for the support which is greatly appreciated.
This three-day conference will help us all explore tech and social media to empower the Latino community. I hope all of you could attend LATISM16 which will take place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL on October 19-21, 2016.
Panels are centered around LATISM’s seven (7) different focus areas:
- Business and Tech Entrepreneurship
- Civic Engagement
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Hackathon and STEAM Fair
