latina motivational speaker On Saturday, I delivered the keynote address at my alma mater, Le Moyne College, in Syracuse New York.

It was my first speech — ever– and I was a little nervous but excited to talk to the students. I’m so honored that El Progreso, a student organization, asked me to participate.

I focused on what it means to embrace your heritage, how your culture can benefit you in the workplace post-college, and what it takes to make it, all while sharing my story.
