Join Me at 2015 Texas Conference for Women Social Media Roundtable #TXConfWomen

Join me and my friend Robin Roberts in Austin at the 2015 Texas Conference for Women on October 15th! Okay, we aren’t friends – yet. However, she is a woman whom I admire for her work and her contributions. Plus, we are both listed as speakers for the 2015 Texas Conference for Women. That’s my claim to fame and I’m running with it.

Robin Roberts, keynote speaker, is co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Under her leadership, the broadcast has won four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Morning Program. She has conducted interviews with countless newsmakers, musicians, authors, athletes and celebrities, and has done extensive reporting around the globe. In 2014, Roberts was honored with the Walter Cronkite award for Excellence in Journalism, was inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, and named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year. (

    Leadership qualities I see in myself are …..
    1. Knowing I’m a minority in many ways (a women, a latina, and a latina without the privilege of knowing the language of my culture) and how vital that is to myself, my children, and my community.
    2. Tenacity to take on the world with both feet on the ground and my shoulders firm in place.
    3. Emotional Intelligence as the fundamental foundation of every other skill I have, learn to have or will possess in the future.
