I hear stories about big dreams and their passionate commitment to make those dreams a reality. I also feel the genuine gratitude these girls and their mothers have for the invaluable support and resources provided by Con Mi MADRE. In these girls, I see our future: teachers, writers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, engineers, policy makers, and community leaders. I am so proud of the work Con Mi MADRE does to empower young Latinas and their mothers through education and support, and I look forward to working with fellow board members, volunteers, and talented staff to further our mission.”
