2013 Nominee: Jessica Marie Gutierrez
As creator of thehispanicblog.com, Jessica Marie Gutierrez considers her blog the gateway to explore and discover the extraordinarily courageous Latino icons of yesterday, as it also highlights signature leaders of today. This Revolucionaria’s online voice recognizes that in union there is strength but as individuals we are powerless and for that reason her passion for making a difference reflects on issues like the modern Latino condition, which includes current leaders, politics, and marketing and public relations news. Being nominated last year and with the ganas to win it this year, Jessica wants to use her blog to touch lives and make a difference. Her hard work and community involvement has had her share her vision with big names, such as President Obama and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
