Dear Future Latina Trailblazers

I was delighted when I first learned that a series about one of my favorite authors, Isabel Allende was in the works.

I was beyond humbled and honored to have been asked to participate in this lovely book inspired by the new series ISABEL.

The 3-part series is currently streaming on HBO Max and it is EVERYTHING!

Isabel on HBO Max

I couldn’t wait to tell my mami and amigas, all fellow Isabel Allende fans.

But I wanted to wait until the series aired to tell everyone, so we could celebrate her together!

My letter in the book is dedicated to all those Latinas who may be the first or only one in their company, field or class.

Although it is sometimes lonely, don’t be afraid to be the outlier.

Use it as a source of power and lead the charge to create the change you want.

Grab your amigas & hermanas and check out this series. Then continue the conversation about effecting change.

I will be spending my weekend re-watching the series & reading the letters from so many Latina trailblazers I follow and admire.

ISABEL is a 3-part miniseries series that follows the incredible life of Isabel Allende, the world’s most widely read Spanish-language author and a tireless human rights activist. From a young age, Isabel was willing to break all the socially accepted standards of her time to pursue happiness and blaze her own path. Then, at the peak of her career, she receives the devastating news that her daughter is on the verge of dying. The pain may have bent her, but it never broke her. Watch the full limited series on HBO Max starting Friday, March 12th.
