Are You Truly Connected To Your Passions?

The following is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Nissan, However all opinions expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines, 16 C.F.R Part 255.



Ever wonder how you connected to the things in life you are truly passionate about? Ever wonder who shares those passions with you? I am sure we have all heard people say things like… “I am passionate about [insert topic here] it is embedded in my DNA!” , a statement meant to solidify the perception of that person’s purpose in life.  Our friends at Nissan have decided to explore the social web’s passion genome and map out exactly what YOUR passions are with the Nissan Passion Genome. 

I have always been passionate about sharing our stories, reconnecting folks with their cultural legacy and building bridges for organizations to collaborate on projects that share our passion as Latinos. #TeamCapicu and I do this using  art, fashion, music, dance, traditions,and emerging trends. We strive to offer Latinos a chance to reconnect with their heritage and extend an invitation to other cultures to experience the beauty of everything we have to offer through our blog, radio show, live and virtual events.

I decided to be different and use the Nissan Passion Genome as a tool to create a list of organizations I have interacted and collaborated this year to assist in our hallmark event of the year, our Pa’l Pueblo Toy Drive. It turns out my passion for giving back is the biggest passion I know. I am fortunate to be surrounded with like minded people.

palpueblopromoOver the last 6 years, my team and I raise money via our 4th quarter events to buy, wrap and deliver Christmas gifts to over 500 kids in the Bushwick United Headstart program. It is a small program that has a big impact so we are always looking for partnership, in kind donations and volunteers. Thru this web visualization project I was able to identify and connect with a few people with shared passion that will be able to help us reach (or exceed) our goal. I will keep you posted on what we are able to accomplish as a result of this “experiment”.
