Yesterday my mother and I were lucky enough to attend the Next Generation Latina breakfast event at the Affinia Hotel in New York City! Latina Magazine and Mastercard joined together to honor ten inspiring, beautiful women for making their dreams a reality and giving back to their community in so many ways. Quiara Alegria Hudes opened up with an amazing speech that touched everyone in the room and it was the perfect introduction to the presentation of the awards. These ten remarkable Next Generation Latinas each received an award and a $500 gift card that was well deserved for all they have achieved. To be in a room full of women who have accomplished so much was so inspiring and it was such a perfect way to start off the week. I was also fortunate to be seated right next to Verky Arcos who happens to be the Fashion Market Editor for Latina Magazine! I was thrilled to be there and so happy to have met such passionate, intelligent, and successful women! Make sure to pick up the latest issue of Latina magazine which features each of the ten Latinas or you can head on over to Latina to see more. Congratulations to each and every one of the Next Generation Latinas and may you all continue to be an inspiration to all of us! Good luck!
