2013 Nominee: Hilda-Gabriela Hernández

The New Americano

As Editor of Quinceanera.com, Hilda-Gabriela understands and extends the importance of keeping alive Hispanic traditions and values to the new generation of American Latinas. Being herself a first generation Latina, Hilda-Gabriela is a mentor and role model to young girls trying to come to terms with their unique bicultural power within today’s changing America. Whether through Quinceanera.com’s online and print magazine, hosting various teen-focused events, or using email marketing and social media, this New Americana uses her unique hold and direct contact with thousands of 13-16 year old Latinas to emphasize the importance of education, health, and community involvement.
