How does your voice create an impact on women empowerment?
It creates an impact because I am a woman of Latin origin, with the great motivation of having a voice in my community, and that way, represent them. Whether that be through music, providing awards, bringing to the table relevant topics, and doing community service.
How do you perceive the impact that you have generated during this pandemic?
Through Mia’s Women’s Empowerment Series, I was able to be a fountain of information that helped immigrant families that did not receive support from their government during the time of the COVID pandemic. Thanks to this series we were able to create a platform to assist our communities.
