Today, I am proud to be where I am thanks to the sweat of my brow and unwavering desire for progress. As a child of first-generation immigrants, I struggled to identify with my local community because of cultural and socioeconomic differences. Nevertheless, I tasked myself with the responsibility to change the negative perception of Mexicans in my predominantly Caucasian neighborhood in Long Island, New York. I did everything in my power to combat stereotypes and not become another statistic.

Having accomplished this goal, I’d like to set for the next stage in my career. This program is will prepare me to communicate my intentions clearly, negotiate my true value. Given the opportunity to participate in the Mujeres de HACE program, I expect to improve my level of productivity reinforcing result oriented practices in both my professional and personal life. I also expect to cultivate a supportive community to bolster my emotional and intellectual well-being. It is my hope to develop relationships with participants that lead to lifelong friendships. In doing so, I also seek to create solidarity among Latin women of all ages across multiple professions. I truly believe this program will serve as the cornerstone for the next stages of my professional development.

Thank you for your support and encouragement!
