Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) named me one of its “Social Networking Leaders” in 2011 and then again in 2013. What an honor.
I have to thank all the people who voted for me. In 2013, I was up against some tough competition with a gazillion followers. My first award in 2011 came as a surprise and so did the one in 2013.
I am not a social networking expert. I would never make such a claim, because social media changes every day. But I am very active on several social media platforms.
LATISM recognized me for my work with Wise Latinas Linked. In 2009, I formed the group with the help of Vicki Adame and Sandra Gonzalez. I realized there wasn’t really a social networking group for Latinas on Facebook or Linkedin.com. Now we are more than 7000 plus members strong. Our goal was to have a place where Latinas could get free information about anything and everything.
I’m very proud that Wise Latinas Linked has been featured in USA Today and the EFE News Service (Spanish).
