“Trying something new and celebrating the experience is often what I encourage others to do. I’m most excited about participating in #ALEx14 because exploring Grand Teton is a new experience for me. I can’t wait to celebrate it with all of you.”
Melanie Mendez-Gonzales is the creator of ¿Qué Means What? – a Latino lifestyle blog based in San Antonio which began with her own “cultural identity crisis” as a Mexican-American out of touch with her heritage. She currently writes to inspire others to celebrate their own culture with stories about familia, education, Latinos in entertainment, and more.
She volunteers with various organizations in San Antonio and online as an advocate for Latinos in tech and education. In 2013, Melanie was chosen as one of the Top Blogueras by Latinos in Tech Innovation and Social Media (LATISM). She is also the co-founder of Texas Latino Bloggers – an online community for Texas Latino bloggers to amplify their voices.
As a social media manager, Melanie supports brands and organizations to share their stories online. She and her family enjoy exploring San Antonio, playing or watching sports, and eating tacos.
