It’s been a few days since this baby was debuted at Stanford, at the Second Annual Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit. I am still processing the amazing events of the day, the new connections made and the new friends that entered my life. For now, I simply want to share a photo and a video, with promises of more later.
Diana Estrada, a.k.a. Positive Diana, made a video with three Latina college students that made the trip to the Summit from Utah Valley University. Listening to this interview and the takeaway lessons expressed by these young ladies makes my heart swell with pride to be able to promote this event for my friend and visionary, Frank Carbajal. Watch this video and you’ll understand why we do this event: to demonstrate the tremendous, diverse leadership within the Latino community so that our young people can meet life-long mentors and be inspired to reach even higher.
The photo I want to share is a special memory: the day that four of ten of the stars of my book came together, met each other, traded stories and formed new friendships. I was deeply honored that these four were there, because they traveled from Los Angeles, Colorado and Florida. Thank you Frank, Carmen, Monica and Robert. You made this special day extraordinary!
