Hola!Y bienbenidas to a new season! I’m Karina host of Elevating la Cultura podcast. I wrapped up season 5 in August, where I got into it with my own story. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy writing and recording those episodes because I had to dig a little into my past experiences to make the connection to how I interact with the world today, and specifically why I’m passionate about sharing stories and pouring into this community.This season, Season 6 is going to be featuring Latina’s in the food space. I hope this season is inspiring, and perhaps even nostalgic as we hear stories we can relate to, and talk about our favorite foods. I’m always up for continuing the conversations so subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss when an episode goes live. I also encourage you to share with others because the more people we have talking about our stories as Latines living in the US, the easier it will be to make a collective change for a better future.There will be a new episode every Tuesday, so after you listen feel free to take a screenshot to post on IG and tag @elevatinglacultura or send me a DM.

Welcome to another week of Season 5 where I’m doing a deep dive into sharing my story and what has brought me here. Last week I shared all about my journey as a parent. Today I’m going deeper on my story with therapy. Therapy is so important to me that I gave it a whole episode.   I’m a huge advocate for therapy. I’m pretty sure I mention it every episode. Therapy never even crossed my mind as a thing to do until my mid-wife mentioned it when I had one of my check ups after having my second child, and I'm so glad she did.I'm so excited to dive deeper into my story and share more about what has brought me to creating this space. Website: karinamora.comInstagram: @elevatinglacultura & @karinamora_prints
Welcome to another week of Season 5 where I’m doing a deep dive into sharing my story and what has brought me here. Last week I shared all about my dating life and how that impacted how I valued myself during that time. Today I’m talking through my journey as a parent. This is a raw and complex part of my story to talk about because as I am the bridge between two completely different generations, I feel like the glue that is keeping it together while trying to shield my kids from my experience growing up and completely shifting to provide a new foundation as I parent them.I'm so excited to dive deeper into my story and share more about what has brought me to creating this space. Website: karinamora.comInstagram: @elevatinglacultura & @karinamora_prints
Welcome to another week of Season 5 where I’m doing a deep dive into sharing my story and what has brought me here.

Un Guero!In the past 4 years my husband has been a great support for our family as we navigate a more hostile political climate, to which I'm thankful, but there's still work to do as we shift the narrative for our own kids and the next generations.I'm so excited to dive deeper into my story and share more about what has brought me to creating this space. Website: karinamora.comInstagram: @elevatinglacultura & @karinamora_prints
Welcome to another week of Season 5 where I’m doing a deep dive into sharing my story.

Bienvenidas to a new season! This season is going to be a little different. It's going to be a mini season with only 6 episodes, and they will all be a solocast where I dive a little deeper into sharing my own story. After doing a lot of healing work in my own life, I’m excited to introduce season 5 where I’ll share my story with my listeners. I’m diving deeper on different areas of my life that have contributed to me doing what I do for my family and why I created this community where we elevate our cultura.This week I'm talking about my journey in entrepreneurship. I'm so excited to dive deeper into my story and share more about what has brought me to creating this space. Website: karinamora.comInstagram: @elevatinglacultura & @karinamora_prints
Another season wrapped! At the end of last season I mentioned we had a little over 1300 downloads, and now we are at over 2100 downloads. I’m always so thankful for all the support, and feedback that keeps me going and sharing our stories. So much wisdom and encouragement shared this season., but most of all I love how many of the people I talked with this season also said that as creatives we need to make space for ourselves to recharge, so that we can in fact keep creating. Rest and peace is crucial to the creative process.This literally is opposite of what we are taught in schools, at work, by our parents… and that is why it’s imperative to change this narrative for creatives in general.We joke or make comments about the “starving artist” narrative but this way of thinking is actually harmful to creatives. It’s a limiting belief that must be broken because it’s simply not true. When we step into our whole being, we find peace, and community to support us. We just need to be willing to deconstruct ideas that we’ve come to accept as reality. Let’s keep healing so that we can be the light for the next generation. Let’s support our kids, trust our kids, and simply encourage the next generation. If you’re in Chicago, come join us for the next Jefa Brunch I host with Veronica. Send me a DM for details, but you can get all the info on the elevating la cultura website. Ok amigos, Thank you so much for listening. If you enjoyed this conversation please rate on apple podcasts, share, take a screenshot to post on IG @elevatinglacultura or send me a DM. You can also comment on our YouTube video if you’re watching onlineI always like to hear from people and how they resonated with the stories I share. En serio. I respond to the DMs and messages. So, muchisimas gracias for another amazing season… I promised a little sneak peek into what next season will be about…and it’s going to be a solo cast where I share more of my story. I mentioned that I’ve been going to therapy, and I’m at a place where I can share more deeply about my story, my journey through assimilation, my story as a daughter of an immigrant, as a wife, as a mother…all the things, I’m going to get into it. People have asked in the DMs, in person to share more about me…so I’m doing it. I usually would rather hear other people’s stories, and experiences but I know I also need to be willing to go deep and share my own life.I’m taking the next month off to recharge, create fun content, and will be back in June with a new season. Enjoy the rest of your day/afternoon/evening, whenever you’re listening y nos vemos pronto!Adios!Karina

But really her story and how her parent’s have been so supportive inspires me to be that for my kids. Go follow @LatinxMktg cuz she puts out great content on social. Ok amigos, Thank you so much for listening.
