They encourage us to build on our strengths. They awaken our greatness. They provide support, guidance, common (or un-common) sense advice, regardless of fancy titles or personal wealth…. AND, if they’re REALLY, REALLY GREAT, they make us see the possibilities within ourselves.
There’s no denying that good role models play a pivotal role in inspiring our youth, reducing incidences of violence and dropouts, and bringing about better, positive outcomes. On my next Google Hangout, I’m talking about ROLE MODELS, you know, the kind of people our Latino kids so desperately need to hear MORE about?
The lineup couldn’t be any better: This time I have invited some of my favorite people in the whole world:
– Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation
– Dr. Frances Colón, Acting Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State at the U.S. Department of State
– Recipients of the 2015 Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards, a group of unbelievably talented Latino millennials who are making strides in every field imaginable! (Names to Come)
Please join us and learn how YOU (yes, you!) can become a Latino Role Model Yourself! REALLY!
