We’re paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. A new tribute airs each weekday from September 17 – October 12
Today’s Trailblazer is Sandra Guzmán, an award-winning multimedia journalist with more than two decades of experience in broadcast, newspaper, and magazine journalism. She is the author of the critically acclaimed bookThe Latina’s Bible: The Nueva Latina’s Guide to Love, Spirituality, Family, and La Vida and its newly released edition The New Latina’s Bible: The Modern Latina’s Guide to Love, Spirituality, Family and La Vida (Seal Press, 2011). With warmth, humor, and I’ve-been-there wisdom, her writing tackles the real-world complications that many Latinas face today.
Guzmán is the editor-in-chief of Heart & Soul – a fitness, health, and wellness magazine for women of color – and the former editor-in-chief of Latina magazine, the first national glossy lifestyle magazine targeting American Hispanic woman. She was also a former associate editor at The New York Post, where she edited nearly a dozen feature sections, including Tempo and a section she created that covered the city’s Latino community. A leading expert in journalism targeting the burgeoning Hispanic market, she has produced and written hundreds of articles profiling prominent men and women in politics, business, and the arts, in addition to having written and produced hundreds of stories about Latinos and Latinas. She recently participated in the making of the HBO documentaryThe Latino List, for which she interviewed notable individuals such as Pitbull, Justice of the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayor, and Eva Longoria.
Guzmán is a dynamic public speaker with extensive experience delivering keynote addresses and workshops on college campuses and Fortune 500 companies on topics involving media, race, women, wellness, pop culture, politics, and diversity. Her intimate discussions about what it means to be Latina and Latino in the 21st century are provocative, educational, and inspiring.
