Life showed me pretty quickly the type of leader I aspire to be. It will always be a work in progress because we are all human and perfection in my eyes is unattainable.

As #Chingona101 evolves, I love that we are cultivating a space of community founded on support. I think that we are all in some way inspired by someone who has unintentionally or intentionally influenced our lives. I always try to acknowledge who those people are because I would not been able to develop myself as a leader without them.

I believe that each one of us has a gift and if we came together and used each others strengths now that would be a, "STATEMENT!" That is what I love about being able to build a community of #latina Women, #WOC can come and be inspired. To know that we can come together as a collective whole and help each other find a place at the table.

It’s a real battle {a daily battle } to have a mindset of positivity. When you haven’t been given a narrative that was infused with such a thing. Especially when you feel called to infuse it in everything that you do. As I was having a conversation with a friend I told her it was hard to be a fucking Pollyanna . I love that movie by the way. It becomes even more harder when you are consistently exposed to the opposite mindset. For example being a cashier at a movie theatre and you getting yelled at for the half empty eaten popcorn bucket that tastes like fungus like it was your fault after having had 3 back to back lectures and having to work an 8 hour shift to pay for your next text book. I was having one of those internal moments that didn’t look good but then my phone gave me an alert of a text message. With a beautiful compliment that came just at the right moment. A couple of days ago the same thing happens as I walked into a friend’s party. Walking into the room with a lot of pain I walked away full of compliments. I hold on to each one with a grateful heart.
