Belen Bernal joins us for this heartwarming episode and part one of a three-part series featuring Latinas in Politics. Belen has a long career as a politician, serving her community of Southgate, CA as Treasurer, and most recently, as Mayor. A true Leveled Up Latina en toda la extension de la palabra. This conversation will go long since we love to catch up and highlight the women we met during our formative college years. It definitely gives us all the feels.
Belen is a dedicated community leader, nonprofit CEO, and longtime public servant. Her journey into politics saw her enter this world young and her path to Mayor of her hometown was impressive and oh so relatable.
Listen if you're interested in public office, but also, if you want to feel inspired by four women who still share love and support after a 20+ year friendship, many ups and downs, and overcoming barriers!
