This monday December 4 I will be back at NYU paneling on being Dominican in different industries. I was just there on November 14 paneling on Afrolatinidad. And they have me slotted to come back to expound more on that in the spring. Super grateful for the opportunity and their amazing students and organizers.
October 12, 2017 / Zahira / Comments Off on This was a lot of fun. Listen to Ep. 6 of Latinos Out Loud, featuring me!
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.
This november 2nd I will be doing a TEDx talk in Mexico City with Cynthia Garcia Galindo on non-physical abuse against women and #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou. You can check out details at TEDxMexicoCity.com and the facebook event here. I’m psyched and excited for this opportunity and to visit Mexico for the first time.
