“I will fit in when I’m supposed to, where I’m supposed to.” – Gina Rodriguez.
This message was the best take away from Orgullosa’s Nueva Latina Living Fabulosa panel at The Times Center in Midtown. The event was geared for Latina’s and succeeded in its mission: to empower the women in the audience. Gina Rodriguez, Nina Terrero, Angie Martinez, and Liliana Vasquez chatted about culture, family, and career, and they also entertained.
Plus, it was great to mingle with old and new friends from the industry, and meet some of my all-time favorite Latinas in entertainment. From Gina Rodriguez to Angie Martinez to Diana Guerrero to Selenis Leyva, the panel was a great representation of the modern Latina and how successful we really can be.
‘Cause don’t you know? We are taking over. Or as Gina put it:
“We are 54 million plus…how do we unite and show how gangsta we are?”
