MamásLatinas Award winners: Symbols that where there is a will there is a way
I have never been prouder of being a Mamá Latina! We all know how outstanding our women are but when you read the achievements of the recipients of the MamásLatinas Awards you will feel the same way I do.
These seven women represent the best of us. Some of them have faced incredible odds, but not only have they surmounted them, they have made it their life mission to help others succeed.
After reading their stories, I hope you feel inspired to go out and give to your community, help a child in need, share some time with somebody who is down.
Here are the winners of the Mamas Latinas award and these are their stories.
Eliana Tardío Hurtado
Eliana's motto is “Si podemos amar, lo podemos todo” (If we can love, we can do anything!) and her life is proof of that. As mother of two children with Down Syndrome, she has become the voice of Latino parents with special needs kids, educating, invigorating, and providing hope for thousands of Latina moms. With the money from the MamásLatinas Award she says: "I would love to start my own nonprofit organization to help Latino families in the U.S. No one like another Latino who has lived the same experiences is better equipped to help them."
