Board Spotlight: Jennifer Rodriguez

BOARD MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: JENNIFER RODRIGUEZ

We would like to extend our deep gratitude to our Board Member Jennifer Rodriguez for her outstanding efforts as the Event Chair for our College Chica Conference. She serves as the Assistant Director of the UTEP Center for Civic Engagement where the coordinates service-learning programs for university students. The proud mom of two daughters is passionate about encouraging girls to focus on education, grow as leaders and develop confidence.


She was motivated to get involved in empowering young Latinas to help boost their confidence. “Young Latinas are facing many critical issues today but in my opinion, the most important is that of self-confidence/self-esteem. Lack of self-confidence/self-esteem in young Latinas can lead to a variety of problems and societal issues.”

 

She supports Latinitas efforts in “allowing for a safe place for young Latinas to discover their cultural heritage, beliefs, morals, network with others. This will allow for them to freely express themselves and discover who they really are. This will build the self-confidence needed to allow for them to positively grow and contribute to the public good,” she shared.

Volunteer Spotlight, Maritza Lopez

maritzaMaritza Lopez is an outstanding Latinitas volunteer who is passionate about ensuring a healthy community as a health educator with El Paso First Health Plans. As a Latinitas volunteer, she has served as a guest speaker with our members, led health and wellness workshops and helped organize a Stay Teen workshop for our girls and moms. The Latinitas team greatly appreciates her excellent volunteer support as the event chair for our Healthy Chica conference. She has taken on a strong leadership role in coordinating this event by helping provide an event location, offering wellness workshops for girls, recruiting health speakers and hosting an excellent opportunity for our girls to grow strong, confident and healthy.

Why do you think it is important to promote health and wellness among young girls? It is important to promote health and wellness among young girls in order to empower them to care for themselves and have a better opportunity of success in life. Without health and wellness, young girl will have a much harder time excelling in school and eventually their career.

What health issues are you concerned about that impact the Hispanic community? Some of the health issues I am concerned about that really impact the Hispanic community are young, overweight girls which in most cases is a result of a poor and innutritious diet and lack of exercise. Another health issue is teen pregnancy among young Latina girls.

Why are you passionate about empowering young Latinas? Being a Latina myself, I think it is important to teach and encourage other young Latina girls to honor and respect themselves as well as their heritage by being strong and independent women. I believe it is through empowering young Latinas to care for themselves and become successful in life will ultimately create a stronger Hispanic community.

What do you enjoy most about volunteering with Latinitas? I really enjoy interacting with the young girls and talking to them about their interests and how they can use those interests to find out what careers and opportunities best fit their own, unique talents.
