A Unique United Nations Experience

 As I continue to settle into my new life in Puerto Rico experiencing two hurricanes Irma and Maria , I received an extraordinary invitation to represent my island as a delegate at “The Media for Social Impact Summit” at the United Nations. Grateful to my friend and colleague Lili Gil Valleta creating a true impact while involving and giving latino professionals opportunities to have an active participation in this outstanding Summit I attended!

ANIMUS Summit Puerto Rico 2017

 Attending my first press conference in Puerto Rico came with joy and pride;  Animus, the innovation summit dedicated to empowering women to reach their highest level of personal and professional development, returns for a third edition. This year the event moves to a new venue, the Puerto Rico Convention Center, due to the warm welcome of past editions and to make room for an audience of nearly a thousand attendees. More than 30 world-class speakers will take the stage this year; among them, the iconic actress, singer and dancer Rita Moreno. And guess who else is speaking? ME!!! I am honored to participate and will be giving a one-hour digital workshop “How to create your brand online, and turn-it into a business”. Puerto Rican entrepreneurs Lucienne Gigante and Carlos Cobián created this event to provide a space in which women get inspired, learn, connect and gain access to opportunities for growth and transformation. Regardless of their career level, from students to presidents and business owners, every attendee has something to gain from the event. Feeling proud with @animussummit Founders @lucienne_gigante @cobianmedia at press conference #AnimusPR 🇵🇷 I am a Speaker #DigitalWorkshop #PuertoRico #webcitygirlsInPR #webcitygirls #empresarias A post shared by webcitygirls (@webcitygirls) on Aug 23, 2017 at 9:08am PDT “Investing in the economic development of women is a solution to grow and transform countries. Women are making way and growing businesses at a fast pace, and we need tools for scalable growth. Animus invites you to think big, it opens doors, it connects you and gives you the chance to listen to great stories, of both failure and success, which can guide people of all ages and career stages,” said Animus co-founder Lucienne Gigante, who has developed innovation and economic development program for women during more than 10 years. #AnimusPR conference happening NOW LIVE via https://t.co/WNQaGmDjZA @animussummit #PuertoRico #webcitygirlsPR 🇵🇷 pic.twitter.com/TkvUsXTJSP — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) August 23, 2017 “It is well-documented that women-led businesses have a higher ROI than those not led by women. Appointing women to leadership positions is a smart business move. That is why, at Animus, we’re empowering them with the right tools and with skills they can put to practice right after the event,” said Animus co-founder Carlos Cobián, who is also the founder of Cobian Media. To broaden the range of experiences presented at the event, each edition of Animus hosts an all-encompassing selection of leaders, from every age and industry, who have broken the frameworks in their respective fields and become role models for success. So excited to be speaking alongside one of my heroes at @animussummit! Rita Moreno is going to bring down the...
