La Opinión Intervista a La Comadre

Tenemos el honor de anunciar que nuestro compañera, Desiree Martínez fue presentada la semana pasada en La Opinión, el periódico en español más grande en Estados Unidos. La carta que Desiree escribió para La Comadre.org a mediados de Agosto, menciono a uno de sus maestros de preparatoria que la desanimó aplicar a una universidad de cuatro años y la animó a ir a un colegio comunitario. Su carta llegó a miles de personas que por alguna razón tuvieron una experiencia similar y otros la felicitaron por su perseverancia. La publicación de este blog se hizo tan popular que los medios nacionales como el Huffington Post, Remezcla y Refinery29 volvieron a publicar su carta.

La Opinión realizó una entrevista con Desiree y la presentó junto con La Comadre.org Fundada por Alma V. Márquez, quienes amas son alumnas de UCLA y defensoras de la justicia educativa. En La Comadre, creemos que los educadores deben inspirar, alentar,animar y  preparar a todos los estudiantes.

Cindy Borbon is a Co-founder and Editorial Manager of LaComadre.org. She is a single mother of 2 who graduated from Bell High School when she was five months pregnant. Becoming a teen mom forced her to become self-sufficient and very responsible early on. She worked fulltime in the auto finance industry, prioritizing working so she could provide for her daughter. She attended junior college for a bit but dropped out to focus on work. Her extraordinary problem solving and strategizing skills led her to become a Senior Supervisor by the age of 26, almost unheard of in her company and industry. She built over a dozen successful teams and she mentored dozens of leaders directly. She was passionate about working with young adults to enhance their skills while she mentored them. Many of her employees were straight out of high school and new to the workforce. She took initiative in getting to know them and their back ground, many times this meant having heart to heart talks about their personal goals, encouraging them to return to college. She turned her talks and speeches for others into her own reality. It is never too late to get an education. It’s never too late start over. It’s never too late to pursue your personal goals. She has found this part of her life to be the most rewarding though challenging. She is working on her BS in Business Management.
