Hispanicize Miami 2018- Recap

Hispanicize Miami is one of the largest event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers from journalism, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship. In it’s 9thyear the 4-day event took place April 17thto April 19 at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. The event entailed keynote speakers, workshops, showcases, celebrity meet and greets, exhibitions, award ceremonies and concerts.

Being that it was my first year attending I did my research ahead of time because I didn’t really know what to expect. I came prepared with casual yet business like attire, my camera and of course business cards. While at the event I was able to connect with a few people and absorb everything I was surrounded by. My favorite part I would have to say would be the keynote speakers and meeting social media phenomenon LeJuan James.

I would definitely love to come back next year to Hispanicize Miami and this time connect with more people in the media industry.

 

Till next April!

Latino Fashion Week 2017

This year’s Latino Fashion Week motto was “Without Limits” and it truly lived to its name. From the opening night till the last day I was amazed by the different styles from each designer. Once again, co-founders and producers of the show Arabel Alva Rosales and Cesar Rolon Jr. brought out some of the best designers and even those who are starting up and giving them a chance to showcase their work.
