Meet the All New Ford EcoSport

 Ford is Unstoppable introducing the all-new EcoSport for North America for those who want space-saving convenience and SUV capability. The EcoSport – a fun, capable, connected compact SUV – stars in the world’s first-ever vehicle reveal on Snapchat, kicking off a Hollywood pop-up event open to the public through Wednesday evening. The interactive event showcases how EcoSport is a perfect companion for those who believe in going small and living big. More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff,” said Chantel Lenard, executive director, Ford U.S. marketing. “EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It’s our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality.” Fun sound, color and style EcoSport’s available premium B&O PLAY audio system brings your music to life. HARMAN acoustic engineers spent hundreds of hours perfecting the in-vehicle music experience. The Ford-exclusive B&O PLAY audio system, standard on EcoSport Titanium, features 10 speakers, including B&O PLAY-branded tweeters and woofers in the front doors and a subwoofer in back. The 675-watt system unlocks the power of your favorite music and transforms every drive into a “living big” experience. EcoSport also features available HD Radio technology, SiriusXM® satellite radio and a dual FM radio antenna that boosts the range and clarity of FM signals. Connected technology EcoSport makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family with SYNC® 3, Ford’s communications and entertainment system. Faster, more intuitive and easier to use, the system provides more conversational voice recognition and enhanced response to driver commands. Optimized for hands-free use, SYNC 3 for EcoSport is coupled with a touch screen similar to a smartphone or tablet. The 8-inch screen gives front-row occupants easy access to operate available Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM commands, and B&O PLAY audio settings. Drivers also have the ability to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from almost anywhere using available SYNC Connect with FordPass®. The mobile app lets owners view vehicle information, such as the fuel level and odometer reading, when not in the vehicle. EcoSport features two fast-charging USB ports to ensure owners’ devices are always juiced. Plus, there’s a 12-volt power outlet. An available 110-volt outlet positioned behind the center console and another 12-volt outlet allow rear-seat passengers to stay plugged in, too....

Everyone Should Have a Mentor

Everyone Should Have a Mentor

 I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to work as a social media influencer. I get to meet many people and have established some wonderful relationships. One of the things that I like the most about social media is that it encourages you to concentrate in subjects that you are passionate about. I absolutely love children and I’m always looking for ways to bring out the best in them, to let them know that they are loved and that they matter. I love taking advantage of teachable moments, encouraging them to make good choices. That is why when I first heard that Sprint partnered with ASPIRA of Florida, to launch the Sprint Mobile Mentorship Program at the Hispanicize conference last year where they were asking notable influencers to help champion Latino Youth by becoming a Mobile Mentor, I just had to jump on that. Talking about good choices, this was a great one for me. Nailah Allen my mentee and I: Nailah Allen is an outstanding mentee from Aspira DE/CO Charter School, she is a super sweet 14 year old who always looks at the bright side of everything and as a matter of fact she is a straight A student.She told me that she would like to attend the best High School that will better prepare her for college. How’s that for the wishes of a young adolescent girl? We talked about her 8th grade “Prom” party coming up and when I asked her what color dress she was wearing for the “Big Party”, she said that she hadn’t bought her outfit yet. I decided to contact Ms. Emma the Activity Director from Aspira and I asked her if she knew how many of the kids had already purchased their suits or gowns. She said that many of the students were not going to buy anything new, because parents couldn’t afford to buy them a new outfit. Inspired by JCPenney participation with “Yes to the Prom” a program designed to build courage and self-confidence among young women. I reached out to them to get as many students a special outfit for their exclusive night. Here is the video story of this wonderful experience with JCPenney: I wanted the kids to feel confident about themselves and to have a really fun time. I want them to feel loved and to know that there are people who really care about them and want them to succeed in life. Congratulations to the 2016 Graduating Class from Aspira Arts Deco, you have a great future ahead of you. I am here for you if you ever want to talk or need a shoulder to cry on. God bless...
