Hispanicize is the premier platform for Latinx trendsetters and newsmakers in digital content creation, journalism, media, marketing, entertainment, and entrepreneurship. I was flown out to support social media content creation for a three-day event in Los Angeles.
LEADING UP TO THE EVENT
My friend gave me the heads up that the Hispanicize even coordinators were looking for more social media ambassadors. I quickly sent an email explaining my background, skills and what I can offer. I was hired! and given my post-event assignments, which included social media marketing.
AT THE EVENT
The event was a three day event, located at the Intercontinental Hotel in Los Angeles. Each day was filled with different panels in multiples rooms. Each panel consisted of individuals from all backgrounds and experiences. In between panels there was an outdoor area with food, drinks, and pop up shops. There was also music, dancing and photo booths.
My job was to capture fun moments, key tips from the panelist and highlight the sponsors. Listening to everyone’s story of struggle, success, challenges and perseverance, gave me so much confidence!
I made sure to network like there was no tomorrow and made new friends along the way. Going to events like Hispanicize, can open the door to so many opportunities and making lasting connections with new friends. The whole experience was fantastic and made me really proud to be Latina!
Hispanicize is a fantastic event that did an incredible job bringing so many people, from all fields, together. I would anyone to attend the next one if you are looking to network, gain insight in your field and to be inspired.
