Latina South welcomes Mariela Romero is an award-winning journalist and Univision’s Regional Community Empowerment Director and host of the television magazine, Conexion Fin de Semana. With 27 Emmys and a Latin Grammy nomination among her accomplishments, she has over 25 years of television and radio broadcast experience. Her first day at CNN Radio En Español took place on the terror-filled September 11, 2001. Let’s listen as she shares how that one day of reporting prepared her for journalism in a way she could not have even imagined. Mariela also shares with us how her time as a hospital and court interpreter opened both her eyes and her heart to the issues impacting the Latino community and inspires her empowerment work today.
“”The only thing we have guaranteed in this world is that we are going to face change. That, to me, has always been an empowering thought…all my life, I have faced change with optimism.” – Mariela Romero
