Muchas Gracias!

"SHARING OUR STORIES: A Powerful Gesture"

I recently received the following letter from a student I visited as part of our HISPA Role Model program in New Jersey. It shows how HISPA is making a difference in our communities and the great impact we have when we share our stories.

The letter was handwritten and read like this:

Dear Dr. Diaz,

I appreciate the encouragement you have given to all of us, but I specially thank you, because I have been enlighten. Before our meetings I was insecure regarding college; part of me has always wanted to go, yet the other part of me opposed. I have been enlightened, and my internal opposition has been replaced with dreams that I MUST fulfill. The conferences support you have given us has helped me overcome my insecurities and my fears regarding college. I appreciate the knowledge you have bestowed upon me, because it has helped me to acquire my first dream, which is to go to college no matter what.
Thank you for your support,
Student Signature

Hello all. I very much enjoy being involved with the youth. I have been for many years mentoring teens and directing them in positive ways. Though as we know many will listen, some will take what you say and run with it and take for what they think it is and a few will just feel they are not ready to take responsabilities for their futures at the present time. But that does not give me the reason to give up. As my own kids would say "mom, though you lecture us for a long time, and will would get bored many of those times you still make lots of sense plus we appreciate it because you give us that motivation and incentive to believe in ourselves and that anything we choose to do in life it can be possible". My children are the example of what I preach. Though they are living home they are doing their thing. My 22 year old daughter has an Associates in Criminal Justice, my 19 year old is starting school now in May for a Bachelors in Nursing(RN) and my son 18 starting September for a BS in Business. Plus, I adopted a 22 year old boy who was nothing but trouble for mom and turned him into a Real Estate Agent (by pushing him and being on top of his up and downs with incentives and motivation) now going on 6 month and he's looking forward to being a Broker. Not only am I a proud mom and I am also blessed with having the resources and knowledge to help other youths in my community.

Hola Ricardo,
Let me know if I can help mentoring a young professional, or recent Hispanic immigrant in US, who is looking to build a career in the Communications, Marketing, Media or PR field.
Warm Regards,

Ricardo, I am interested in learning more about this program and your strategies. I strongly feel that there is a Call To Action going on right now for our Hispanic youth, they must know and see that we as professionals mean business and that we do care for their future.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

I am a proud Hispanic professional woman. I have established 3 companies in my career. I launched and ran North & Latin American Operations for a French based software-consulting firm. Working with this company for 10 years. I am the founder and CEO of Unique Customer Service Approach (UCSA) International an elite small woman owned business development networking brokerage firm.
As inherent in our company name, our unique approach assists our customers in the growth of their company in today's competitive marketplace. We provide a unique combination of products services to assist them to expand their customer base and retain long-term customer relationships. At UCSA we provide a unique approach to doing business “We Network Our Network”.
I believe networking and relationship building is the corner stone of building a successful and profitable business. I have always believed in mentoring and am happy to mentor young people. I can share lessons learned, best business practices and skills that may help you to achieve your goals.

Yes, yes and yes! Thanks for asking!

Jhonny, the experience you have summarized seems to be very interesting. Has it been systematized/evaluated? Do professionals have guidelines/methods?
Comment by Johnny Silvas on January 24, 2009 at 10:01am
We started a group back in March of 2008 called
West Texas C.R.E.O. It stands for
Community Reinvesting in Educational Opportunites.
We help out all youth, especially those in danger of dropping out!
We have a group of about 170 Hispanic Business Professionals
looking at issues like the Hispanic Dropout Rate, Teenage Pregnancy Rate
and helping out seniors in High School move on to the college world!
