#TOPBlogueras14 at LATISM’14 Annual Conference

 Blessed and thankful as everyday I get to do what I love. Its been four years of working very hard to create new opportunities, while I was learning/networking and determined to make my dreams come true. Happily surprised throughout 2014 as invites keep popping up and they truly just get better and better. In November I was recognized for the third year in a row as one of LATISM [ LatinosInTechandSocialMedia.org ] TOP Latina Influencers 2014, which included an invitation to Anaheim, California during LATISM 2014 Conference. Among others, The Walt Disney Company Global Diversity & Inclusion was a proud sponsor of LATISM’14 Annual National Conference and the Top Blogueras 2014 retreat.

Our next mentor was Susana Tubert, Creative Director at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment with a remarkable successful story who shared all the knowledge. Susana motivated and inspired us with powerful words: Do not compete with anyone but yourself. You are the writer and protagonist of your own book ~ @SusanaTubert @Disney #TopBlogueras14 #Latism — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) November 13, 2014 If you’re passionate on what you believe it will become true ~ Susana Tubert #TopBlogueras14 #Latism14 A perfect energizing morning could only become better by a visit to experience the kick-off of a lively holiday at Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Its Disney celebrating the holidays en Español! I felt proud to see the Disney characters participating with live Latino music. A truly wonderful experience of our culture and traditions through the eyes of an iconic American Brand. APLAUSOS Disney! Next two days was all about LATISM 14 Conference covering Health, Education, Business and Technology tracks with different panels like Johnson & Johnson sharing their amazing initiative Donate a Photo to help different children causes.
