    Making History in the Gaming Industry with Carolina Acosta 🇨🇴🇩🇴

    Making History in the Gaming Industry with Carolina Acosta 🇨🇴🇩🇴

    Carolina Acosta is  a Latina entrepreneur from Queens NY with a background in graphic design. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design. Carolina launched a game dedicated to Latinos and she’s making history in the process since the gaming industry is white, cisgender, male-dominated, and often overlooks people of color and women. 
    In this episode we talked more about entrepreneurship. This year we have been enjoying learning from other Latinx entrepreneurs. We hope this conversation can inspire other folks that are also thinking about entrepreneurship and don’t know how to start.

    Having a Different Perspective After a Sabbatical with Leandro Senna 🇧🇷

    We talked with Leandro Senna (he/his), a former Designer Lead at Apple where he worked for 7 years, Senna also has a huge experience in graphic design working for agencies. In the beginning of his career, Senna worked at Volkswagen assembling cars when he was based in São Bernardo, Brazil. 
    In this episode, we’re talking about sabbatical. This is a theme we wanted to bring to this podcast for a while. We feel our community doesn’t talk about it much. Most of the time this is a subject so far away from our reality and also we’re excited to discuss that with Senna.

A must listen!!!

Thaisa is such a great host and does an amazing job highlighting the stories of the Latinx community while also giving advice in navigating your career. I would absolutely recommend taking a listen to any episode! Every person she brings on has an incredible story and tons of life lessons to share.

This is a dream coming true

I always wanted to create a podcast like that, once I heard a quote that said “if you don’t have the platform you need, you should create our own”. This was one of the reasons I created the Latinx in Power podcast and the community we’re building. I couldn’t be happier with the conversations we’re having so I wanted to thank you all ❤️🎤

Empowering interviews

I love this podcast! As a Brazilian living in the US, listening to other people from the Latinx community coming forward and sharing their experiences and knowledge is really inspiring and empowering. I love how engaging and fun the interviews are conducted. Great audio, good pace. I reccomend it to whoever is out there trying to stand tall in this land of opportunities.
