HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

Today we celebrate the power within, something we all possess. According to a survey conducted by Wakefield Research, women surveyed said their best female role model was someone in their family (60%) or someone in their community (24%), with 65% of them stating they themselves were a role model for someone in their lives.  In recognition of this,  Actress/Activist Rosie Perez and Pine-Sol® have united to praise the power within us via the "When Life Gets Tough, Women Rise Above it" campaign.

JU SO FONII!!  Ok si, for those fluent in Spanglish, just squint a little so the infographics kinda blur together, y alli you have it.  You know what else y'all have?  A Fabulous story to tell, and you have until January 31, 2014 to do so- pero no esperan, don't wait.  And here My Beautifuls comes the Babushka Twofer- not only will you empower someone with your story, you can win fantastic prizes by sharing that power moment.

Still a little shy to share?  Aqui tienen un video to embullar & encourage:

BB's inner power appeared when my daughter was hospitalized and I started the #StopTheStigma campaign. The stigma of mental illness is very powerful in the Latino community, to the point that NO ONE wanted to help or give me direction when my overstressed and depressed child became catatonic and was Baker Acted into a psychiatric ward. The full story and events done since then can be found on the link, but suffice to say I vowed no other parent would have to go through the frustration of finding help.  I turned the angst into advocacy and am now helping others rise above the stigma of mental illness. 

 Where has your inspiration for rising above challenges come from?
