Latinas of the New School: How Millenial Latinas Connect



What do you get when you combine some of today’s dopest millennial Latinas, a chic industrial loft-style space overlooking the Brooklyn waterfront, and sponsorships from some of the best brands in the business? You get the Latinas of the New School Dinner hosted by the founders of The Latina Connect.

Verky Arcos Baldonado (Editor-At-Large for Latina Magazine), Ericka Tapia (founder of Brooklyn Jewelgasm), and Qiana Aviles (Entrepreneur & TV Personality) are three of the most influential Latinas in the game. Together they have founded The Latina Connect, an endeavor designed to partner brands with the most coveted consumer of today, the millennial Latina. With a guest list that included some of the most successful female entrepreneurs and popular social media personalities and influencers, the Latinas of the New School Dinner was the first event of many more to come. I was lucky enough to have a seat at the table of this invitation only dinner.
