Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to this site!  It is a source for positive, uplifting content.   I was born to Mexican and Puerto Rican parents in New York City. They instilled in me and my brother a love for our family's Latino culture and a desire to learn more about our rich history, political landscape, artists and cuisine.  I'm so happy to create and share this project in progress. This site is for you, no matter your background. My  goal is to provide an inclusive and informational space, with stories that celebrate the unique and vibrant Latino community and all communities.Whether you're looking for inspiring stories, helpful tips, or a dose of motivation,check in here periodically
If you have any ideas, please drop us a line. 

One love, Ivonne

November 2023.

For years, I have served as a Flight Attendant however, the job is more than serving snacks and ensuring safety.  Flight Attendants wear many hats, we listen to all types of stories, while sizing up people to ensure safety.  I genuinely like to serve people, now please don't get me wrong, I am not a Mother Theresa wannabe here.  During my professional career, I' have served under three Governors Administrations and self published seven Hispanic Resource Guides; the roles were different but they shared the same ultimate goal of helping others.  Thanks to my father who introduced me and taught me at a young age, to leave something better than before.  www.holaUSA.com is a granular size attempt to do just that. Whether by leaving a smile on your face or somehow inspiring to leave the world a better place. This is now.
There is a Chinese saying that goes:"If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.  If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.  If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune,.  If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody."   Let's help each other., we can all be happy by doing so. :-)  Just be cautious, be safe.  This site was founded with a mission to share positive, uplifting, and useful content. After a long hiatus, we are excited to be back.     Peace, Ivonne
