It was a wonderful evening at Spotlight 29 Casino where the 2nd Annual IMPACTO Business & Community Awards was held to honor business and community leaders. I was honored to be recognized as a trailblazer receiving “The Trilblazer” Awards for The Love & Love Tennis Foundation’s part in spreading tennis to kids in the Coachella Valley.
I was raised in San Francisco by my ” Great Aunt & Uncle who immigrated from San Salvador. I was so fortunate to have been quite luckily to have been exposed to tennis by my Great Uncle who I called “father”. That opened the wonders of the world to a Hispanic kid that never ventured far from her neighborhood. Tennis gave me a new world and a new confidence that taught me how to be a winner and
to say: ” Si Se Puede”
Thank you for the honor and congratulations to the other honorees, Joel Diaz Boxing, Michael Angelo Hernandez and Dolores Huerta. And thank you Rebecca Luna, the chairwomam of the Desert Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. You put on a great show.
