My Latinx Life

My Latinx Life

My Latinx Life, is an exploration of my journey to learn, educate, and highlight Latinx, BIPOC, marginalized leaders in a comfortable setting similar to your mom’s kitchen. We will explore passion projects, community movements, intersectionality, culture, history, and mental health all with a leadership lens. An overarching theme and topic will be relationships how we build them, foster growth, and when to step away since interactions are built on some type of relationship.I invite you to join me, your host Joe Arredondo every other week as we delve into these topics with guest who range from colleagues, friends, and people that I admire. While I don't claim to be an expert I am someone who brings people together and I enjoy learning. My opinions may change and morph as I learn so join me on this journey. You can also follow on Instagram, Twitter, and Website all under My Latinx Life. I look forward to seeing where this goes, how it develops, and morphs because that is life, more specifically that’s My Latinx Life. You can visit https://www.mylatinxlife.com/
