CHECK OUT all the GREAT Interviews on Adaptive Athletes For American Latino TV Show!

People know I want to keep growing as a host, not just do beauty and fashion alone. So I was approached by one of the producers at LATV who said that I was their “inspiration” to do their annual athlete one hour special, but this time they wanted to highlight adaptive athletes, for the first time! They wanted me to host and be the “connective tissue to all these stories” which is an honor to me because I admire all of them! I’m so excited to share all these powerful interviews! All of the athletes are beyond inspiring, so you don’t want to miss any of the interviews, which is why I wanted to share all these together! All these interviews, were part of a one hour special that aired on American Latino TV. 🙂

To the athletes (and their families), thank you so much for your time, for being part of this, and for opening up to me! It’s been a blessing meeting you all!

It makes me feel so awesome that I was some sort of inspiration for change, to have a positive effect on  a tv network, and for the first time dedicate a whole hour to athletes who happen to have a disability or different abilities and highlight stories THAT SHOULD BE HIGHLIGHTED MORE AND MORE!

PLEASE CHECK THESE OUT AND SHARE THIS BLOG POST! Everyone should hear these powerful stories because it will motivate you to do more and simply inspire you!

Special thanks to #LATV and #americanlatinotv!
