How I was featured on NBC News
(Update: Since this post I have also been featured on Fox, Univision, Telemundo, and many other newspapers since my story was picked up by the Associated Press)
Today has been a very exciting day. I’m not sure if you follow me on facebook or not. Well I shared how I have attended the #WeAllGrow summit in Long Beach, California in the beginning or March. It was a really great summit with hundreds of Latina (mostly) bloggers, creatives, authors, content creators, etc. The venue was beautiful at the Maya Hotel right next to the water. We could see the Queen Mary museum from our rooms. This was my first year attending and it did not disappoint. I was fortunate enough to be selected by Ana Flores the creator of WeAllGrow and Latina Bloggers Connect to part of a panel. The panel was titled “How to successfully launch a YouTube channel.” Although I do not consider myself a YouTube expert I have learned a thing or two in my years as a YouTuber with my “All Crafts Channel” and wanted to share some of my wisdom with others. I really enjoyed it and met some really nice lifestyle and beauty bloggers with whom I shared the panel.
The summit had many valuable sessions, workshops, awesome sponsors such as #Dove, #Neutrogena, #Mazda, #YouTube, #TurboTax, #.Me, Aguacates de Mexico, and #O-P-I just to name a few. The event was really great. I highly recommend it. One evening we had a Storytellers event which was moderated by my good friend Kathy Cano-Murillo aka CraftyChica. Several women shared their inspirational stories. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place.
After storytellers I met Lorraine D. Ladish and we struck up a conversation. She asked me what I did and I responded, “I’m a YouTuber.” We then had a nice conversation as I shared how I got started on YouTube and other aspects of my life. It turns out the beautiful Lorraine D. Ladish is a very respected writer, blogger and published author. Her Blog “VivaFifty” celebrates life at 50+ years and beyond. Her blog is also bilingual. Lorraine interviewed me for NBC News and here is the result. A wonderful story that shares how I started on YouTube. I have placed the link here for you to read. I hope you enjoy it.
