NHLI transforms Latina leaders to be empowered for their communities. THey have effected change in hundreds of women who have gone on to effect change within throusands of others. They definitely go off the premise of paying it forward!
The National Hispanic Organization helped me become aware of how to become a better leader in my community, how to overcome obstacles I might come across in my profession. I listened to impurity inspiring latina women and gave us confidence to acquire our professional dreams. The most important aspect of National Hispana Leadership Institute is the strong relationships you build. I am greatful for being part of such an amazing leadership institute.
Throughout my time with NHLI I have seen how such an amazing group of people can accomplish such impressive feats. With a mission centered on the empowerment of Latinas in the United States, you get a clear cut view of what their work entails. Embracing Hispanic heritage, staying true to yourself, and acknowledging what hard work can bring are just some of the many things I have learned from this organization. Their work has inspired me to take on more leadership roles as a Latina and provide/seek mentorship opportunities to and from all those around me. With two of their major programs holding hands, you can see the transformation of what Latina youth can aspire to be.
NHLI is an organisation created out of the recognized need to empower latinas as early as 1987 and they have been around all these years for a cause. My recent association with NHLI has brought me closer to not only the cause of providing latinas a platform to step head but also the need to preserve and nurture the vibrant hispanic culture.
