BIG NEWS. I mean HUGE! I have been chosen to attend the Latinos in Tech Innovation & Social Media Conference [LATISM] in Orlando, Florida as a digital influencer. I received the news last month, and I am still in shock today. Being chosen to attend a conference that explores tech and social media as avenues for empowering the Latino community is absolutely mind-blowing.
This 3-day conference will be held October 19th – 21st and consists of panels that center around LATISM’s different areas:
Business & Tech Entrepreneurship
Diversity & Inclusion
The LATISM conference will also have it’s 2nd annual S.T.E.A.M. Youth Fair. 5th -12th graders from around the United States will display projects in science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
I have never been to Florida, but it is a state I have always wanted to visit. This Golden State girl is enthusiastic about heading to the Sunshine State! I am a little nervous about flying, considering the last time I was on a plane was 4 years ago, and the last time I was on a plane by myself was 14 years ago. What?! But I am more pumped and excited than fearful, and that is where my mind will stay.
