"The most important investment of our time is in our community and our youth"
My participation in the all Latina Goddess Mercado was very empowering for a young girl like me. Everyone was so sweet and made me feel welcomed. Honestly, I didn't expect that! I now feel incredibly fortunate to be a young Latina from this neighborhood. As a new businesswoman I felt like I had a lot of support at this new market. Seeing so many boss Latina women doing their thing really made me feel like I belong to this community. I feel that as Latina entrepreneurs we face similar barriers and struggles. It felt good to know I was around relatable women that I could share experiences with . I am happy that I am now part of this community!
I am a student and reside in Boyle Heights. I started my business last august to help distract myself from all the crazy things going on in the world. Then I found my love for baking and making sweets by exploring other things I could make to help grow my business. My educational goal is to become a child psychologist and help children through emotional barriers and trauma so that they can succeed in school and life. Thank you for supporting me at our next #thegoddessmercado!
