Chicas Unidas: Maria Elena Salinas, Independent Journalist [Watch Video]
Our keynote speaker from “Chicas Unidas,” a Hispanic Heritage celebration of Latinas where we can gather, and discuss topics on women’s wellness, professional development and female empowerment, was Maria Elena Salinas, an Independent Journalist and contributor to CBS News.
Her presentation, “My Journey as a Journalist: A Latina’s guide to navigating your way to success – on your own terms” was all about Maria Elena’s story of her life, from how she worked in Spanish language media as a news anchor and correspondent for television, radio and magazines, as well as her identity as a Mexican-American mother of two daughters. She was born in Los Angeles, CA and is a proud representative of her cultural heritage and identity as a child of immigrant parents, and she thrives in her role now as an independent journalist where she can travel the world.
