This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with AT&T and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. All opinions are my own.
It’s time for new year’s resolutions. Time to feel motivated, to improve, and set new goals for the future. A new year brings a brand new set of possibilities.
This year, my family and I learned many valuable lessons. One of them is that technology plays a very important role in our lives. We learned that we cannot live without technology. We learned also that we need to use it wisely. Limiting screen time is important but at the same time, technology is and will always be a very important tool in our lives.
Thanks to technology we now have access to information like never before. Quickly google anything you want to know and get answers within seconds! Get lost on the road and technology will tell you where you are and where to go. Miss relatives who live far away and just video chat with them from your smartphone.
As a Latina, I feel that technology is vital. It is such a powerful tool that makes us feel more united than ever. Connecting to a Latino group on Facebook makes me feel proud of who I am. It makes me feel close to my culture, to my true identity, and learn more about my origins.
AT&T fielded a research study to explore the role of technology in U.S. Latinos’ pursuit of their goals and aspirations across various aspects of their lives.
Of Spanish Dominant/Bilingual Latinos…
77% say technology plays a big role in keeping socially and culturally connected
67% say technology enables them to stay connected to their Hispanic identity
58% Feel more empowered through technology
68% believe technology is key to the empowerment of the Latino community in the U.S.
It is through technology that we more connected culturally and socially. We can now join groups of people on social media with similar interests. We can be part of a community. We can work from home. We can really send a message to the world and feel so empowered thanks to technology.
Technology has definitely empowered me to make a difference. Thanks to my blog, I was able to reach over 1.5 million people in 2017! I was able to change lives and inspire other families with my posts.
The purpose of my blog is to help families with my ideas, my recipes, and my tips for a creative and healthy family lifestyle. And I am pretty happy to know that I was able to do it this year. I answered questions, I helped other moms with my natural remedies, and I created new recipes that other families really enjoyed. Technology has made all that possible. To me, this is simply amazing!
My biggest resolution for 2018 is to keep my family happy and healthy. I will keep sharing my best ideas and try to improve a little every day. I will write about my concerns, my fears, my passions, and my goals. I want to inspire and reach many more families in 2018, and I am sure that technology will make that dream come true.
Technology is definitely a powerful tool that can be used to help improve lives day-to- day, achieve potential, maintain connections with loved ones near and far, and enable social change.
Work hard to achieve your goals. The sky is the limit!
Happy New Year!
