    SideBar: Four Years In {Anniversary Post}

    Four years ago, Latinas Uprising went live! I never, ever dreamed of how this community would unfold and how passionate I would become about diversity in the legal field. This site is a labor of love, and it brings me so much joy to work on it, little by little, everyday. Mil, mil, mil, mil gracias! I want to share four questions I had to think about during these past four years: One. Is there a need? The biggest question I had when I started this was whether or not there was an audience.

    Happy One Year!

    It’s our one year anniversary!! Yes, Latinas Uprising has been going strong for one year!   Since that time, I have come to meet so many ambitious, intelligent, and kind women.  Latinas who are focused, driven, and poised to do great things for their communities. It has really been such a motivator for me to do more because I’m finally seeing real women who (1) look like me; (2) from similar backgrounds, and it gives me the push to do more because I see all of you doing more.  Not just the attorneys, but college-grads and law students (and full-time workers, and business-women, etc. etc.) who are so goal-oriented and willing to put…
