Connecting online evolves into great opportunity!

Connecting online evolves into great opportunity!

 Hello!!! My name is Jacquelyn Gomez and I am delighted to share that I just graduated from the University of Houston majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Spanish and Business. I am extremely proud to be a Latina because Latinas are unstoppable and I consider myself to be one. I love fashion, traveling, meeting new people, writing, and helping others! I did it!!! Class of 2016 | University of Houston As a PR major, I understand the importance of social media in our society. I have made great connections through social media, and one of those was connecting with Lynn Ponder, founder of Web City Girls, after noticing her promotional efforts with a brand and many artists including Prince Royce. Once I was in Miami during vacation, I saw through her Twitter account that we were both attending the Colombian Festival in Downtown Miami. We immediately bonded and enjoyed the event together. Truly, meeting Lynn in person allowed me to see how much she has done for the community and how social media is more than just a virtual outlet. Lynn Ponder and Jacquelyn Gómez in Miami Social media is powerful in joining our communities, strengthening bonds, and helping good causes. From personal experience, social media has helped me engage more in my Houstonian community when I had the opportunity to start my own pageant during my last college semester in Fall 2016 to raise funds for scholarships. The event was conducted at the University of Houston on December 11th, 2016, while having Telemundo Houston as media sponsor. I loved seeing how the audience enjoyed Eleo and JKing’s performance of their newest Spanish single, while Manny D also performed his latest hits. Also, bachata sensation Alex Wayne released his new single “Ven a Mi.” I believe that social media gives everyone an opportunity to communicate, no matter what part of the world they are in. I could see this through the pageant’s Facebook pageant receiving engagement within the US and in Latin America, through the contestants’ families who were able to support their relatives online. I am beyond excited and grateful with Web City Girls to be a part of the #UnstoppableLatinas Leadership Summit 2017 team.
