February: Month Long Challenge
28 Day Challenge
I am excited for the month of February because I have so many goals and plans on where to take Platform Latino and really level up. So to really kick off this month I have given myself a 30 day challenge! Well maybe not 30 days because February only has 28 days but it will give me a realizable goal to achieve for the month. The goal is to write a blog post every day of the month. (Don’t worry I will try my best to keep it interesting)
What are my goals for Platform Latino?
My goals for Platform Latino are to create a source for Latino encouragement. I want this brand to be a platform for Latinos both young and old to look and learn from for self-betterment. I will be writing articles on topics I have learned about the Latino culture as well as things I have found interesting in the past. Coming soon, I will start uploading an interview podcast, which I bring on Latinos from all walks of life to tell their success story.
How did I come up with the idea for Platform Latino?
One day I was asked what my ultimate goal in life was and I answered that I would want to leave a legacy of being an influential Latino that served as a role model for future generations. The follow up question to that was “Who are your role models?” – This really caught me off guard because I rambled off some names but I quickly realized none of them were Latinos.
It hit me later when I went home and was embarrassed that I couldn’t really name many mainstream Latino Leaders. I could easily name European, Caucasian and even African American heroes but when it came to my own background, I was at a loss for words.
I asked some friends of mixed cultures if they could name more than 5 mainstream Latino Leaders and many of them really couldn’t as easily as they could say African American Leaders. On a side note, there is no problem with having role models from different cultures I just felt that this was a gap in the education system that could be filled with just some awareness. This is where Platform Latino was cultivated. It’s my motivation to bring Latino Leaders to the mainstream and have their names be recognized as much as the Martin Luther King Jr.’s and the Malcolm X’s.
How can you join me on my journey?
There are a few ways you can follow and even help me on my journey:
- Social Media – you can click on the links below and follow the PL pages
- Write me an email so I can add you to the email list to let you know when our future podcasts will debut.
- Share with your friends – Word of mouth is the best way to get the word out. Plus I will be extremely grateful.
Thanks for reading and let me know if there are any topics, you want to learn more about or if you know of a Latino Leader that may be interested in being a guest on the podcast.
