I remember meeting Dr. Angelica Perez-Litwin on Twitter about three years ago. She was and still is such a positive and helpful force for young Latinas like myself. She has the best advice. She is encouraging of my academic and career goals, something I didn’t really have growing up. Dr. Perez-Litwin opened the doors to my poetry and encouraged me to turn my book of poems, an honors project in college, into an e-book.
Her latest venture in empowering and uplifting Latinas is through the ELLA Leadership Institute
The ELLA Leadership Institute officially launched last month at Barnard College, Columbia University and I was one of their Twitter Amabassadors! The LATINAS THINK BIG™ Event featured four innovative, trailblazing Latinas presenting their BIG ideas in a 16-minute presentation. Google partnered with ELLA Institute to live stream the event for national visibility. The event was also covered by their sponsors NBCLatino, and Cosmo for Latinas, their media partner.
