Who has influenced you?
Virtually anyone can benefit from having a mentor. 

I’m loving the summer issue. I really like the leadership article. It focused on some great points. You truly cover so many aspects of our community. Also, the way you honored a great friend who left us way too early. Thank you Visión, you are truly the best publication about Latinos in California

I started the photography Project: Powerful Woman / Mujer Poderosa because I wanted to combine the love of helping girls and women enhance their self confidence and self-esteem through a combination of makeup, photography and empowerment. Being surrounded by depression growing up, I realized how much having low self esteem is the root of not pursuing goals and dreams. I recently came across a statistic from National Report on the State of Self-Esteem, by the Dove Self-Esteem Fund that states : 7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with family and friends. I believe that one you start to build or enhance self confidence within women or girls, self doubt and fear starte to leave. As the photography project gained momentum I realized, I had a lot of friends wanting to help me spread this message. There is a cultural shift that's happening because women are creating modern-day movements towards real change now.
