I first heard of Hispanicize at an Entrepreneur Talk 101 where Nicole from Lipstick & Brunch mentioned it as being one of the most influential and empowering national events she had attended. Then I heard of it again about a week ago about it coming to Houston!! I simply had to be there. For those of you who don't know much about this organization, Hispanicize...

"is the iconic, largest annual event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in journalism, blogging, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship." - Hispanicize


Manny Ruiz (also known as Papi Blogger) is the founder of the Hispanicize Media Group and decided to expand Hispanicize to Houston, joining the likes of New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.
Houston has the 3rd largest hispanic market in the country and we definitely have some potential, which sparked the hashtag #powerinunity. We ALL have a voice, have values, and dignity to stand up for. Manny sure came to stir the pot here in Houston and we're going to keep the fire burning!

Some of Houston's top influencers and bloggers along with others from San Antonio!

There were many influencers, bloggers, and some journalists that attended the event which was held at Eastdown Warehouse sponsored by State Farm and TeQava, which is like a champagne/tequila cocktail. The venue was perfect for the event and everyone was making connections and mingling with other attendees. Eastdown Warehouse is also latino-owned and located in a great location!
This was all just a glimpse of what's to come April 4-8th in #Hispanicize2016 . 


Catching up with a friend, can you spot me?
