Vanessa Avalos: Creating the first bilingual Spanish playroom and learning center to help keep the language alive.
I’m Karina host of Elevating la Cultura, and today I’m chatting with Vanessa Avalos, my friend who is opening up a bilingual and culturally relevant playroom called Luna y Cielo. You can definitely hear the passion behind what she is building. She shares so much information about the process of building something from the ground up, and the all of the emotions that go with it. She is seriously working so hard to bring this access to our community.
This episode is PACKED with all of the things! I mean we talked about it all. I’m so thankful Vanessa was so open and honest with her journey as she builds a new space for the Latine community because it’s definitely not easy, but its going to be so worth it.
Since our episode Vanessa has launched her crowdfunding campaign started her own TIKTOK account, and has learned a lot more about social media. I also filmed her promo video which I’ll include at the end of the YouTube video if you want to check it out there.
Ok amigos, Thank you so much for listening. 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. You can also comment on our YouTube video if you’re watching online. I always like to hear from people and how they resonate with the stories I share. SO leave a review on apple podcasts so we can get more ears listening to these stories and we can continue elevating la cultura. Alright, enjoy the rest of the day/afternoon/evening whenever you’re listening, y nos vemos next week.
