What inspires you about the impact of Latino Changemakers that you see all over the US?
As for inspiration: as a first-generation migrant and entrepreneur, it is incredibly inspiring to see so many people who uproot their lives to seek new opportunities and thrive in the US. As Hispanics, we share language and cultural references, but also often a history of struggle, bravery, and community that shows in our projects and initiatives. Seeing how others turn the odds in their favor to make a change keeps me going.
