Recap: LATISM 2016 in Orlando

So this past month I was in Orlando. I was there for the 2016 Latinos in Tech Innovation and Social Media (LATISM) national conference, which this year was themed around the idea of influencers being Agents of Change. It had been a couple of years since I had attended this […]

From Texas to New York City

Nueva York: Day Two

I’ve decided today that I kind of like the pace of running up and down the streets, jumping in front of vehicles in massive groups to cross the street, the freedom of being able to race in front of people without having to say “excuse me” or “con permiso,” and […]

From Texas to New York City

New York: Day One

So I’m in New York for work this week.  Bueno  por lo menos until Saturday.  And while there are a lot of things to do at the conference I’m attending, I’ve also promised myself I’m going to try and do a little sightseeing while here.  This is only my second time in […]

LATISM, Dolores Huerta, and Your Love – Thank You!

I’m sitting on the plane right now, exhausted, con los pies que me están matando – we definitely don’t have that many stairs in Houston – pensando, en tantas cosas tan hermosas that happened to me the last few days.  I’m afraid that I’ll blink and it will all have […]

El Día E

Spanish is actually my first language.  Y a pesar de haber estudiado y vivido toda mi vida aquí, nunca deje de hablar el español. My parents wanted us to speak both languages and made it their job to teach us español at home.  Por eso ahora cuando la gente se […]
