Hola! I haven’t posted in awhile because I was a bit sick. But I’m back now and with some exciting news! I was chosen as a top influencer to attend the 2016 Latism retreat in Orlando, Fl at the Disney Coronado Springs resort! How exciting is that?!
To be honest I was completely shocked when I found out about me being chosen. I really wanted this so you can only imagine my excitement. Latism stands for LATINOS IN TECH INNOVATION AND SOCIAL MEDIA. It’s to help empower Latinos. As an Afro-Latina I am so very happy about this.
As many of you know I’m disabled and being a woman of color who is also disabled and bisexual is not easy, but I hope my story and tips I pick up along the way will inspire someone.
I was 17 when I started my blog and now I’m 24. This is the biggest thing that has happened for me as a blogger. Last year I had a rough time, but I had a lot of people support me. It’s amazing what a year can do. I know that you guys are a huge reason why I get the opportunities I receive. Thank you for all of your support. I wish I could take each and every one of you with me but the the most I can do is offer you all a discount. Visit the conference website here and use the discount code Influencer16.
I hope to see some of you there!
Another exciting part to this (besides the possibility of Mickey Mouse waffles) is the fact that I will be going on my first airplane flight. I’m so excited and anxious but I think that if I plan on being a role model for disabled individuals I have to show them and able-bodied people that being disabled doesn’t change how much you can enjoy life. You can travel and explore just like everyone else. My anxiety will be fine, I am learning many ways to control it.
I love every single one of you. We’re a family. I hope you all are excited for this. I’ll be vlogging and blogging my whole experience so make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel.
