What do you like the most about Latinitas? Why do you think it is important for our community t o have an organization like Latinitas to encourage local girls to build confidence?
I like the fact that Latinitas is focused on empowering Hispanic girls. At Tri-Stat
e, the majority of our students are young girls and women from El Paso that are of Hispanic ethnicity. We strive to build confidence in our students and to prepare them to be successful business women who are civically conscientious. We believe in the strength of women and their ability to be empowered and give back to their community. Latinitas is unique in that they are taking the same message to girls starting at a young age.
