Celebrando Latinas 2016: Celebrating Latinas Conference


Celebrando Latinas has become one of my favorite events each year! I attended in 2014 & last year. This year, I was honored to attend as a guest of Sharp. I am an Ambassador for Sharp, it is a volunteer position which I greatly enjoy. This year’s Conference was just as good as the past two. This year there were several speakers, workshops, a health check-up center, a Luncheon which included a Fashion Show, and an Expo. This is all beneficial, educational, and inspirational, but the main reason I enjoy attending is because I have fun! I got to see my girlfriends and enjoyed a full day with them! We started at the Sharp Disfruta Tu Salud (Enjoy Your Health) section where we got some helpful information about health and diet. We walked through the Expo and visited the vendor booths, then enjoyed the Luncheon and Fashion Show. In the afternoon, we went to a workshop and ended the day with some wine (I had sparkling water because I am still breastfeeding) while we mingled at the Closing Party!
The event was held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. A beautiful hotel and resort with amazing views of the bay and Coronado. Congratulations to Fanny Miller, president of El Latino newspaper, and her team for another successful event!

Below are some pictures from the event, hope you like them!

Celebrando is the largest Spanish language conference for Latinas held in the country.  For more information regarding Celebrando and for updates regarding next year’s event, visit CelebrandoLatinas.com. I am looking forward to attending next year’s Conference and hope to see you there!



PS – In case you missed it, I shared my personal story with Sharp for their article The Risks and Rewards of Delaying Pregnancy, click here to read it. Another organization I support is the YWCA, I wrote about how they are Empowering Women and Inspiring Me.


With friends, Rafael Garcia and Pilar Kuri.
