LATISM 2011 has come and gone but the memories are still being lived through pictures and tweets.
Many didn’t know until days before the conference, that I had been selected to attend the and that I had a full pass sponsor.
I’ve mentioned before that, It’s because of Brands like McDonald’s that bloggers like myself can dream and grow! Read about my great time being sponsored here
The conference was one of the highlights of this year for many reasons.
For those that don’t know, LATISM stands for Latinos in Social Media.
It is a community of individuals of all backgrounds, careers, and education that engage in social media.
LATISM has always meant a lot to me. From the start they have supported me and my passion. They’re a familia that has seen me grow and has supported me the whole way. I thank you with all my heart!
To be in a place with everyone I’ve connected with via LATISM twitter parties was surreal but so much fun!
Even more so when I got the news that I was officially a Co-Director for the Philly Chapter along with my new amiga Sisy from GrowingBilingual.com
The news came during the first day of the conference when the Conference magazine displayed a all the Chapter Directors!!!!
Here is a re-cap of the awesome 3-day festivities via pictures by myself, the Latism photographer and my amiga Jendalynne. Thank you!
I had the chance to work the LATISM Registration table with my Amigas Cheryl, Ezzy, Jenda and Monique! I met Dolores Huerta! I presented the Top Latin@ Blogger Award to Angelica Perez from New Latina. I laughed hard with Mike Robles who performed for us!
I tweeted live from Niches to Riches and From El Barrio to Madison Ave.
