Hi, I'm Angelica
Growing up, I had big aspirations of working on Wall Street. Despite facing the daunting task of graduating amidst the 2008 Financial Crisis, I was determined to pursue my dreams. Although I lost out on a few internships, I learned to have faith in myself and to embrace the power of divine redirection. As a first-generation Latina, my journey was fraught with challenges, but I took some unconventional career turns that eventually led me down an unexpected yet fulfilling path.
I hope that my story can inspire others to believe in themselves and trust the process of self-discovery and growth. Throughout my journey, I had to take the time to discover who I truly was. This entailed questioning if my aspirations were realistic and if I was good enough to achieve them. But I persevered, and I was determined to make it as my authentic self.
Despite feeling like an outsider at times, I could always find solace in my Latina heritage. The rich cultural traditions and values that were passed down to me from my ancestors provided me with a sense of belonging and identity. Even when facing challenges and obstacles, I drew strength from this connection to my roots and used it as motivation to persevere. It is a source of pride and inspiration that has helped shape who I am today.
Why I founded the PowHER Circle?
I have had an incredible journey, from losing internships to finding life-changing opportunities. I persevered, obtained my MBA from a top 10 Business School, and landed my dream job on Wall Street. I feel blessed to have traveled to over 42 countries, including living in New York, San Francisco, Charlottesville, Singapore, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. I have done business across four continents: North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. I'm proud that I have earned recognition for my work, including several awards in my career. A few years ago, I even published a goal-setting workbook, Turn Your Goals Into Actions, and my Lifestyle & Career Blog.
...None of this would be possible without the unwavering love and support of the incredible women in my life. They have been the driving force behind many of my achievements. Their encouragement has been nothing short of instrumental, and I aspire to create a community that is equally supportive of other women.
I wake up every day excited to work in Financial Technology, but my most significant accomplishment is empowering others to achieve their dreams. I find immense joy in helping women overcome obstacles, gain access to prestigious universities and careers, and seize opportunities. I am incredibly proud of what we've achieved at The Powher Circle and excited about the future. As we continue to grow, I remain committed to our mission of breaking down barriers and helping women succeed. If you're searching for a community of empowering women, The Powher Circle is the perfect place for you.
