So I love it when a friend gets recognized or wins an award...especially when they are Latino. It's not every day when a Latino gets awarded by a huge corporation. That's why I'm happy to find out that fellow LATISM colleague, Elianne, Ramos has been nominated to receive the 2011 Miller Coors Lider of the Year. It's been a while since I've seen Coors in the Latino community (in Philly) so it's interesting to see where they have gone.
Each year, Miller-Coors selects nominees from across the country for their achievements as national and local leaders within the Hispanic community. I have been was chosen because of my involvement in the Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) organization as well as for my leadership in motivating and connecting people across generations, ethnicies and issues to work together for the greater good of the Latino community.
Elianne's competition is rough but I know she'll pull it off. From what I gather, she's the only Latina who is heavily involved in social media and still committed to helping the Latino community. Yes this means I endorse her work. Although I don't have $1k to donate, I'm happy to let you know about how to vote for Elianne.
