Finally, the time has come! I am so delighted to be typing these words as I drink my first cup of super-yummy coffee this morning, creating the official, first article for “Latina and the City,” a blog I conceptualized almost a year ago. I invite you to follow and grow with me on this new adventure, where I will dish on the scene and Latinas in Big D … and wherever else the world takes me.
Yes, considering this blog is by a single gal, you can count on my written or video content occasionally being interrupted by a mention of some fabulous shoes or some hot guy luring my attention at a particular event. My overall goal, however, is to shine light on the modern, Hispanic woman’s experiences and contributions to the world. Chant with me, ¡Mujeres unidas jamás serán vencidas!
On that note, I’m off to go help set up and decorate the Survivor Tent, where breakfast, gifts and special recognition will be provided for breast cancer survivors participating in this weekend’s Susan G. Komen Dallas Race for the Cure. There’s still time to sign up for the race and donate to the fight against breast cancer — reportedly the leading cause of death in Latinas in the United States and around the world. To all those already signed up, see you Saturday at NorthPark Center! For more information, visit http://www.komen-dallas.org/komen-race-for-the-cure/.
