How do you give back to the Hispanic/Latinx community?

I'm part of the Katherine Casares Foundation. Every year, we come together and have a school drive to donate book bags and school supplies to give back to children in the Dominican Republic. This group helps every child to be prepared to learn and succeed in their educational pursuits.

What does Hispanic Heritage Month mean to you?

Hispanic Heritage Month to me means being proud of where we come from and remembering that no matter where we go, our heritage will always stay with us. On a more personal level, it means being appreciative of my grandparents for uprooting their life and moving their seven children from their home to a new, unfamiliar place to create a better life for their 21 grandchildren and even more great-grandchildren. Their sacrifice is not unique in the Hispanic community and Hispanic Heritage Month is a reminder of that.

How do you give back to the Hispanic/Latinx community?

One of the things I am really passionate about is keeping our culture alive and sharing anything I can with the next generation. My familia and I help spread that through music, dancing and entertaining. Here in New Mexico, my husband plays for a well-known New Mexican artist, and I attend whenever I can to support the local musicianship. We also share Hispanic/Latinx music with our neighbors and the youth of our community, and we have a dream of having our own studio and "school of rock" someday! Having two boys of our own, we have worked very hard to instill the love for our culture's music in them. While there are lots of different genres of music, you will more often than not likely hear Hispanic songs blaring from our casa.

This month is a special time to highlight anything we feel that plays an important part of telling the story of our people and our heritage.

How do you give back to the Hispanic/Latinx community?

It's wonderful to support a local Hispanic business in my small community in northern Colorado that provides food I'm familiar with. There aren't too many Hispanic businesses in my area so I'm happy to shop there. The store owner is from the same state as my family in Jalisco, Mexico. I've gotten to know the owner and they recognize my family when we go shopping.
