Sharing the stories of Extraordinary Latinas who, through purpose, resilience, and courage, have embraced their uniqueness, carved their path, harnessed the power of community, and opened doors for other Latinas and women to rise.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Latinas are rapidly becoming the growth engine for the US and prominent contributors to American society's educational, economic, and cultural wellbeing. Nonetheless, Latinas continue to be significantly underserved, undervalued, and underrepresented.
Now more than ever, we must change the narrative and redefine our power. It is our time to challenge the beliefs from the past that "calladita te vez mas bonita" and recognize that our true beauty and power comes from our uniqueness, our heritage, and our collective voices.
By elevating our voices and sharing our stories, we empower one another to become stronger, to see the world through each other's eyes, and to recognize our potential through someone else's story.
By sharing our stories, we can all be uplifted and inspired – this is the essence of this book. Our unique voices are the pathways to our individual wisdom - and it's through these stories that we come together to empower one another.
Know that you are not alone. Although you may feel like the "only one," you can find in Extraordinary Latinas, a group of powerful women who have gone through similar experiences and will help you step up, believe in yourself and embrace your power as an Extraordinary Latina.
