Brenda Lopez Romero on Being Among the First and the Few in Georgia | Ep. 18, Part I

"As young people, your job right now is to put in a lot of work. And for me, I see that as the investment. You have to invest in yourself first, by putting in the work and by doing the best job that you can. And when you're young...you don't have to sleep." - Brenda Lopez Romero

.............

In the first of two parts of this Episode, we talk with powerhouse Latina, Brenda Lopez Romero. Brenda made history in 2016 when she became the very first Latina elected to the Georgia General Assembly. Born in Mexico, she came to the US at age 5 and became a US citizen in 2008. Let’s listen as Brenda talks about how it feels to be among the first and the few. She shares her personal story, like that of her father’s, as one of responsibility and hard work from a very young age. She also talks about what we can do to offer young people exposure to the places where decisions are made - helping to build experience in the future leaders of our community.

 

And there we pause the first of two parts of Episode 18 of our interview with Brenda Lopez Romero. Stay tuned and be sure to listen to the second episode where Brenda reveals some critical lessons learned during her 2020 US Congressional campaign in Georgia - a process she says she could only learn from by running and trying it herself.
