Vagas Story Series 2023
Her Vaga Bound Roots presents our 7th annual Vagas with Degrees series, a series that features BIPOC women trailblazers and celebrates their successes and resiliency by sharing their untold stories with the world! This year, the series was open to high school mentees of NY's Latina Mentoring Initiative. Alongside mentees, we also celebrated the stories and voices of a few powerhouse Latinas who serve as LMI Mentors and thank them for volunteering their time and pouring invaluable care and kindness into these young girls mind and hearts.
