I don’t make of a big deal about Cinco De Mayo. You may be thinking, “Why the hell not?” It’s the perfect reason to have a margarita or drink tequila! You can wear a sombrero and make tacos!…Exactly. These are some reasons why you’re probably doing it all wrong by celebrating Cinco De Mayo this way. It’s not so much about what we celebrate, but rather HOW we celebrate it.
So I’ve been MIA for a few weeks, so what have I been up to? I launched my YouTube channel! This is something I have thought about doing for years, but the perfectionist in me was holding me back. Finally, I decided to take the leap. So far, it has been a pleasure creating, editing and producing content for my channel. But it is no easy job!
If you follow me on social media, or know me personally, you KNOW how proud I am of my Latina American roots. I am a “Proud Peruvian” as I mention in my personal Twitter bio. When I thought about what I wanted my blog to be about, I knew I wanted to highlight my Hispanic background and all the wonderful features that come with it. I particularly wanted to celebrate Latin American women. We are strong, fierce, outspoken, loud, sassy and so much more! We’re truly a force to be reckoned with. That is how A Latina Soiree was born!
When I started blogging back in 2010, I did it for the desire to share my experiences; essentially with the hopes that I could help or inspire someone going down a similar path. Of course, I loved writing too. I love the creative process of it all. Since then, I have grown greatly, as a writer and as a person; as well as acquired a new vision for my beloved blog.
