HAHMP GALA with Special Guest Mario Lopez

I’ve been part of the Houston Association of Hispanic Media Professionals for about 7 years now.  It year I look forward to our Galas for its awesome themes and yes the dressing up. This year I was asked to be part of the Gala committee. It was lots of work and tons of fun but I think the biggest reward is seeing everyone have a great time and giving back to students that will one day become our future Journalist and leaders.

This year’s theme was Cirque de Fantasique held at the Downtown Hyatt hotel. The ballroom was lit with giant balloons, color and lights. Mario Lopez took stage to give a short inspirational speech. With all my running around unfortunately I only got the last glimpse.

Local Hispanic Journalist from all TV/Radio stations attended, I remember my first Gala as a student I was so honored (still am) to be around so many Journalist whom I’ve looked up too. Among many Journalist we had local leaders and a room full of professionals.

So if you are a media student and want to get involved I urge you to join HAHMP, You won’t regret it. By the way a special shout out to my friend Yessenia for volunteering/ being my date. Also to all my Houston On the Move crew it is always a pleasure to see each one of you.

Can’t wait until next year!
