This Friday brings a melange of awesomeness from our Latinos [as if we didn’t know already]. These folks are out there putting the Latino name “en alto”, taking the media -and the cyberworld- by storm, demonstrating that you can achieve extraordinary things in life by doing what you do best, from the heart. To their success!
The lovely ladies from @spanglishbaby, the on-line resource and community for parents, were featured on Vme´s @vmetubebe this week, talking about their favorite topic: raising Bilingual and Bicultural kids! The Co-Founders, Ana Flores and Roxana Soto, are two Latina moms, journalists, TV producers and all-around power Latinas. Find out more about them here.
One of our fave authors, @elishamiranda, is presenting IN OUR LINGO: Novels, Films & Social Media for Young Adults at El Museo del Barrio starting on April 20th, along with filmmakers Karly Beaumont (@coretemparts) and Yahaira Paulino. They will be sharing from their novels and current media projects and discussing real ways to connect with social media. Find more information about Elisha and what sounds like a very interesting panel here.
Our Chica from Chicago @alexklevine and the folks from @sayhitopaco just launched a new site for their client, newfuturo.com, a site with a heart: providing Latino families with guidance so they can get their students into college and beyond. Incidentally, the social media portion of their promotions was just awarded to @MayaEscobar. Congrats to all, Chicago, represent!
Award-winning, industry -recognized Marketing Executive and Co-founder and Managing Partner of Acento Group (AG) Liliana Gil (@liligil) just launched her new website. She was also just featured in the April issue of Vanidades! Congrats, Lili, enhorabuena!
The beautiful and talented @jeannettekaplun just celebrated the airing of the 100th show for Viva La Familia. The show airs every Saturday at 12pm EST/11am CST por Univision. Brava, Jeannette, we know the show will be on forever, it provides much needed information for Latino parents!

Last but not least, we are sending a big hug to the ladies who attended BlogHerBET ’11 representing our LATISM community! @laflowers @AnaRC @NewLatina @yvonneinla and our new hermana from South of the Border @LaClau. It was a great pleasure to hug you again, chicas!
