LATISM-Chicago Tweet Up!

Last night I had the opportunity to participate in the first LATISM-Chicago Chapter Tweet Up at DePaul University. Many thanks to NewFuturo for sponsoring the event which focused on education.

The Tweet Up also gave many of  us #LATISM tweeps the opportunity to finally meet “in real life.”

I did more listening than talking last night. How could I not? It’s always inspiring to hear stories from these passionate Latinos who have dedicated so much of their talents to their respective businesses, causes, and blogs – all in the name of advancing the Latino community’s voice. What became apparent during last night’s discussion is that each of us has a story to tell. All of us have overcome challenges and barriers.

I’m looking forward to seeing many of them again in a couple of months for the LATISM ’11 National Conference, again in Chicago.

Wonderful to see all of you – y nos vemos pronto!
