Latinas Creating Positive Change #OrgullosaProject Twitter Party 6/5

Tonight I participated in a wonderful #ToneUp Twitter Party with @MAMIVERSE where we discussed all things fitness. It was an enjoyable, fast-moving conversation and I was able to connect with some new Latinas online.

One of my goals has recently been to revamp my Twitter presence and participate in more chats. I just got an invite for a chat through Facebook, and I wanted to post about it. Maybe you’d like to join the discussion too!

It’s the Latinas Creating Positive Change #OrgullosaProject Twitter Party. Latina Mom Bloggers (@LatinaMomBlogs), @Orgullosa, and lifestyle expert Evette Rios (@EvrRios) are hosting. You can join by using the hashtag #OrgullosaProject next Wednesday, June 5 at 9pm EST.  I like the focus on non-profit and social change, even if it does come from a large company.

Let me tell you one tip about how I set up for a Twitter party. I always open two tabs: one with Twitter and my @s and the other with TweetChat.com to follow the hashtag. It keeps me engaged in the conversation while allowing me to also remain aware of who’s interacting with my posts.

Hope to see you at the party!

”LATINAS

Very exited about supporting the @EllaInstitute with their launch event this Thursday at Barnard College! Dr. Angelica Perez-Litwin is one of the women in the public eye that I truly admire. She dedicates her time to uplifting other women and utilizing social media as a positive tool. She founded New Latina, the Latina Leadership Network Facebook group, and now the ELLA Institute. All while working as a psychotherapist and having a family as well. Entrepreneurship, in particular social entrepreneurship, really calls me. I hope that one day I’ll have the opportunity to work for myself while making a meaningful impact on the world. It will be people like Angelica that I will look to for mentorship and guidance.

At Thursday’s launch event, I’ll be attending with a wonderful group of members of United Latino Professionals, a social networking organization for Latinos. I’ve been a member since 2009 and it has been an amazing way to make friends and be active in the city. You can join us on Meetup or Facebook, and we are launching a comprehensive website soon.

The event is sold out. But if you still want to join us, you actually can! It will be livestreamed by Google+.

I’ll be tweeting from @CatarinaRivera. Looking forward to it! It’s always really inspiring to be around women who are go-getters. I’m sure the room will be alive with energy, passion, and new ideas.
