Hablando Latina Smart

We’ve talked fashion, food, trends and dichos over at the Latina Smart community this summer.

It’s the simple beginning of an on-going conversation that is meant to unite, educate, empower and even give us a laugh or two. A community that reflects the diversity among Hispanic women — celebrating what unites us and shining a light on our personal power..

Thank you for hanging out with us over on the Facebook page. And, if you haven’t clicked “Like,” consider it.

Up with good tiki tiki, down with bad tiki tiki.

Good tiki tiki = Latina Smart
Bad tiki tiki = Latina Pendeja (or not so smart)

I agree with Bren! You are such a great speaker and the video was great! And you reminded to do my video for Latina Smart. I was tagged and still have yet to find the time to create a response video. Will get to it soon. I really want to participate in this great group!

I have to admit, when I first heard about the Latina Smart campaign, I was skeptical. I thought, yet another big company trying to get a piece of the Hispanic action. Guess it’s the journo in me. But over the last several months, I’ve observed the campaign. I’ve seen your videos about so many things–good & bad tiki, those of Mercedes who admits wanting to have more computer education, and I thought, wow. These sharp, beautiful, vulnerable, ambitious women are me. So BRAVA to you chicas, b.c your soul, guts, and heart made this campaign true and inspiring. ¡As my girl Cristina says, Pa’lante porque para atras…ni para impulso!
