As the influence of Latinas continues to grow in the U.S., young Latinas are longing for more mentors that understand their unique experience and can inspire and guide them to achieve their full potential.
Orgullosa is setting out on a mission to rally its community of more than 1.5 million online Latinas to be role models that inspire other young Latinas to seize their full potential by Living Fabulosa.
SAG Award-winning actress Diane Guerrero hosted the annual Orgullosa #LivingFabulosa event last night at The Paley Center for Media in New York City, bringing together a powerhouse of Latina trendsetters who participated in a panel that highlighted the need of having more Latina role models and mentors to inspire and guide young Latinas. Special guests and panelists included singer Raquel Sofia; Vixen Workout founder, Janet Jones; Project Enye founder, Denise Soler Cox; personal branding expert Emmelie De La Cruz; and the head of multicultural marketing for Google, Eliana Murillo. The group of panelists also led a series of empowering sessions aimed to equip Orgullosa women with the mentoring and confidence-building lessons they need to inspire their peers to live fabulously.
