Somebody pinch me! I am on a very short list of finalists nominated to be recognized at the Tecla Awards among amazing Latino influencers from all over the nation! I couldn’t be more humbled and excited to have been nominated for such an honor. Over 1,000 influencers were nominated in 26 categories. And to be a finalist in the Best Latino/Latino Pinner on Pinterest category is simply jaw dropping news!
The Tecla Award winners will be announced live on Thursday April, 7th during the Hispanicize Conference in Miami, Florida.
