Amiga, Handle Your Shit


Gratitude During This Break

Ep. 10

I am so excited to be able to announce that the United States now has a woman of color in the White House! The Latinas showed up to the polls this election and it shows - thank you to all of you who voted and made your voice heard!

In this episode, I am talking to you - just me and you - in honor of reaching my 10th episode. I have gone through quite the personal journey since our worlds were put on pause due to COVID-19 and I am here to share it with you. While I was resistant during the beginning of the global pandemic, I have found 3 R’s that have helped me to grow during this pandemic - or break, as I prefer to call it. 

Tune in to learn how to use this time to reframe, recharge, and recalibrate. Enjoy Amigas!
