This was such a surreal experience. Never imagined I would be flown out to Mexico City to do a TEDx talk. Humbled and honored.

October 6 I had the fortune of being invited onto the mega talented Juan Bago and Rachel La Loca’s podcast Latinos Out Loud. These folks are hilarious and doing great things as a Latinx comedy troupe, Listen HERE.
On October 9 I had the pleasure and honor of speaking at Foro de Mujeres Lideres Mexico, at Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico. It was my first time in the country and everyone was so kind and thoughtful. I met some amazing, inspiring women. Ever grateful for having been flown out there.
After our discussion on #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou with Cynthia Garcia Galindo (who is truly a gift to the world), it was humbling to hear women tell me they hadn’t realized the things that were happening to them were abusive and they deserved better.
In a month Cynthia and I will be at TEDx mexico in Mexico City, talking on #QuizaNoTePegue as well.
Never imagined that hashtag would bring us to this but I am elated.
The amazing ladies at the Homegirl Box reached out to me for a collab and I couldnt say no! It’s by women of color, with all woman created goods, in a seasonal box. And this one is the Cardi B box. You know I’m a regular degular schmegular girl from the Bronx, too, so this speaks to me. My contribution is my popular Galaxy Princess print (available at shopzahirakelly.com). The box drops tomorrrow! Check out info and details at TheHomegirlBox.com. Be sure to cop yours!
