Moderator For Latinas in Gaming Session With Samsung 837


Proud to rep my Dominican Republic roots for @SamsungMobileusa + #LatinosinGaming Gaming Session! I was joined by @queenjetset @naughtynimbus @erinasimon in welcoming all who identify as Latinx for an insightful #SamsungExperience!
🙏🏽💕
Never in a MILLION years did I think I would be speaking my vision. Sounds weird? It’s not. It’s one thing to have a vision in your mind and heart. It’s another to be able to speak it in the pursuit to make a difference. I want to make a difference for all Latinos; Spanish speaking or not we are family and we have to work to lift each other to better our future and cultures. All are welcomed!
