Lauren Velez, Tony Plana, Jose Yenque, John Quinones, Janet Dacal, Telemundo and Univision were in the same room as me!!! And no one had to kick me out or anything!!
As you may recall, I attended the HOLA Awards Gala that honored many amazing Latino actors and those in the media.
I've talked a lot about being a member of the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors [click here for a refresher].
While in law school, I attended an event by the Puerto Rican Bar Association where a member of the Board of Directors from HOLA was speaking. I spoke to him about my interest in entertainment law, and he handed me their press packet.* Fast forward many years later and I became a member of HOLA...not as an attorney, but as an actress. Life's funny, ain't it?
I went to the HOLA awards and snapped hundreds of pictures and videos until my batteries ran out, acting like these were my kids performing at a school show. Meanwhile I don't know any of these people! But of course I'm hootin' and hollerin' at every award recipient. Why? Because these are mi gente.
Here are a few pics of those that received awards:
