Greetings from the President, Meiling Macias-Toro
Welcome to our website!
We had a successful Latina Leadership Forum (LLF) and Scholarship Award luncheon this past April 20th. The LLF is known as a place where women network, hear dynamic motivational speakers and Westchester high school seniors are awarded scholarships to assist them with college expenses.
The day emphasized the empowerment of women, as well as her civil and political rights, while being socially responsible to each other and others. All the honorees, candidates, High School staff and parents were invited to attend thanks to the sponsorship from Goya, NY Life and TD Bank.
The speakers Esmeralda Cruz and Dee Rivera provided personal and emotive details of their journey to success. Our Keynote eloquantly deliverd by Sulma Arzu-Brown was so eye-opening and inspiring that one of the attending moms declared she will be going back to college! We also heard from last years winning scholars and how they are looking forward to also giving back to our community. We are proud to say that hearing these declarations help keep our board and its members motivated to continue to make a difference.
Lastly, we can report that our membership is thriving! But, we need more of you to join and sign up to receive announcements for the rest of this years upcoming events, meetups and workshops.
Our membership benefits will give you networking opportunities and ticket discounts for every event. It also provides you access to the Westchester and National board, as well as its’ members.
Thank you for all your support and I will provide updates as we continue with our mission!
