Lourdes Nunez-Silva - Estrella

 

“Knowing that I can continue to make a difference in a young woman’s life by sharing, coaching, and training.”

Lourdes Nunez- Silva, also known as Luli, has been a MANA member for the past three years. She first joined MANA de San Diego to assist in the development and growth of young Latinas throughout the San Diego community. In her time at MANA, she has been a key member of the Latina Success Conference, Latina Success Leadership Program, and is now a part of MANA’s newest MentHERship program. In her professional life, Luli works for the City of San Diego as a Human Resources Manager for San Diego City Employee’s Retirement System. In her time at MANA she has played in integral role in making our conferences, and LSLP program a success. Luli’s proudest accomplishment with her time at MANA has been assisting in the creation and implementation of the Latina Success Leadership Program.

When asked what inspires her to continue her work at MANA she replied, “Knowing that I can continue to make a difference in a young woman’s life by sharing, coaching, and training.” This inspiration has shown through in her involvement with LSC, LSLP, and the MentHERship program. Luli also noted the importance of being able to sit at the table with professional and inspiring Latinas from different backgrounds and brainstorming about creating programs that will benefit our young women tomorrow.

Something that most people do not know about Luli is her goal is to be an entrepreneurial businesswoman and open a non-profit business to serve underprivileged communities in Baja California, Mexico. She has been a loyal and outstanding MANA member, and we are lucky to have her on board with us. Luli is a MANA Estrella!
