It is with great excitement that I submit my name for consideration for membership on the Arizona Latino Media Association Board of Directors. Over the past eight years I have built my professional career in two of Arizona’s main Latino media organizations; first as a producer and multimedia journalist at Univision Arizona and for the past three years as an anchor and multimedia journalist at Telemundo Arizona.

 

Working as a journalist in Arizona has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, but it would not have been possible without ALMA. Upon moving to Arizona, Alma introduced me to the state’s journalism community, connecting me with my mentor, former boss, and leader for Latino media in Arizona, Juan Villa. Strong mentors and a robust network is key to professional success, and I found that through ALMA. Further, as a member of ALMA I experienced firsthand the great impact the organization can have on an aspiring journalist. A few years ago, I received a scholarship to attend my first NAHJ journalist conference, an experience that has had a lasting impact on my career. 

 

It’s my hope that I can be a part of strengthening Arizona’s network of Latino journalists, serving as a mentor and resource for recent graduates and new colleagues. I want to be a part of ALMA’s fundraising and volunteer efforts that will help shape the futures of journalism in Arizona and the country.

Two years ago, I decided to leave my job of 12 years at The New York Times to stay in Arizona and teach at the Cronkite School, and I did so because I wanted to leave a mark on the world. One might say that there's no bigger platform than The New York Times to leave such mark, but I disagree. My world at the Cronkite School and in Arizona may have be smaller, but the impact I've had is significantly greater and longer lasting, especially among the aspiring journalists and young journalists of color that I come across in the classroom and through the events and initiatives promoted by ALMA. One of the ways to touch the lives of these journalists is by inspiring them to value who they are — value the fact that they are "different" — and use that to make them better professionals and better people. Another is by giving them tools to help advance their careers, both in terms of training and also through financial help.

 

A lot has happened in my life since I joined the ALMA board and, at ALMA, I found purpose to keep going (and I also found amazing friends who have always been there for me). My work isn't finished. I hope to be given the opportunity to serve another term as a board member at ALMA to keep it going and to continue to increase the reach and relevance of our organization.
