Become a Living Fabulosa Mentor today!


Being a mentor is one of the most rewarding challenges any of us can undertake. Whether through a formal relationships or just encountering people along the way, mentors have helped make all of us who we are today. Parents, teachers and friends have served as role models and helped mold us into better versions of ourselves.

You have the opportunity to empower someone else as their mentor. Young people need someone who has been through similar experiences before – not so they can avoid the trials of life, but so they can be best equipped to tackle them. A mentor isn’t a babysitter. You’re not there to lecture or reprimand. You’re there to help your mentee see a little further, reach a little higher and be a little better so we can all work together to Live Fabulosa.

Orgullosa is rallying its community of Nueva Latinas together to lead the way for the next generation. Join with us to create a movement that inspires and equips the next wave of Latinas to look, feel and be their best.
