One of my most proudest accomplishments so far has been co-founding a chapter of Hermanas Unidas on the UC Santa Barbara campus. Today Hermanas Unidas is a strong, large and powerful presences on the UC Santa Barbara campus and all the other universities across California. It was an amazing process to go through and was worth all the sweat and tears.

The state-wide conference is happening soon and they have asked for a short video from the founding members of each chapter. With the distance and lack of free time (and babysitting) I don't get to be involved with the organization nearly enough as I would like to, but this I could do.

Now I warn you, this video is like 5 minutes long and unless you enjoy watching me talk, or have love for HAU this may be a boring video.
