Latinitas Girls and Latina leaders

Message from volunteer Angie de la Riva:

Today was a GREAT day @ GUILLEN JR. HIGH!! I was invited by Latinitas to be a guest speaker at the after school program they sponsor at Guillen (hello my own school!) for the school’s 6th-8th graders…young Latinas

Instead of going by myself, I decided to invite a few Guillen/Bowie Alumn to join me. Because 2015 is THE year for BOWIE CLASS of 1990 (yeah!), I took two of my fellow grads along – Patsy Lopez-Hernandez & Nora Carrillo (in uniform!).

There’s never a doubt in my mind that when I ask Bowie Exes to join me in my efforts to “pay it forward” – they will! Hands down, it’s a community like no other in El Paso and I am uber lucky to be a part of it.

A SINCERE & LOVING THANK YOU to BOWIE BEARS Rebecca Duran, Nora Carrillo & BonniePatsy Lopez-Hernandez for accepting my invitation to speak at Guillen, taking time away from their own lives and responsibilities and joining me in reaching out to OUR future Latinas and Bowie Bears!

Chicas, I am touched by your actions, excitement, eagerness and willingness to inspire and motivate the girls by sharing your own life stories and advice. MIL GRACIAS. You ladies made it fun!

Thank you Latinitas El Paso for welcoming us Bowie Alumns! It was a WONDERFUL & unforgettable afternoon.
