Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 – October 15.

Although we here at Needle Movers desire to prioritize the exploration of different cultures all year long, it’s always a special time to highlight the perspectives of those different than ours during the times when more people are open and positioned to listen.

Which is why Samantha and I thought it was important to bring this week’s guest onto the Needle Movers for Social Equity Podcast.

Natalia Salas, a beautiful career woman, mother, and wife, took time to hop on the mic with us and honestly share her thoughts around Hispanic heritage – specifically her own – and opens up a window of discovery for all of us that are learning more about what it means to have citizenship in a country different than the one you’re from.

It’s a beautiful thing to hear, and I know you’ll love her just as much as Sam and I did.

What you’ll hear:

  • Natalia shares about her Mexican heritage and how it’s different from her husband’s Columbian heritage.
  • She’ll breakdown the difference between the words Hispanic, Latino/Latina/Latinx, and Chicano (I definitely learned something new!)
  • She’ll share about some of her personal challenges and experiences being Mexican in American
  • And you’ll hear about the beautiful joys she experiences from her culture.

It’s our best episode to date.
