HAHMP member since her college days at the University of Houston and a fundamental part of HAHMP’s launch of “Houston On the Move” television show, here is a short Q and A with our February 2013 member of the month: Mariné Hernández.
What have you gained being part of HAHMP?
Friends, knowledge and lots of contacts! When I was a student I got the opportunity to meet people that were already on the air and I got a chance to mingle with them and learn about what they did. By doing so I was able to reconfirm my desires to work in TV. As a professional, I have made lots of contacts and continue to meet new people. Once I became a freelancer, I had the opportunity to serve on HAHMP’s board and start something never done before by the organization, a television show. “Houston on the Move” allowed me to keep practicing being on the air and I also learned how to be a producer. So in every aspect of my life, HAHMP has always been an organization that has done something for me[...more...]
How long have you been a member of HAHMP?
I first became a member in 2009. My husband Nelson Vanegas, who I was dating at the time, heard about HAHMP from his coworkers at Univision Radio and invited me to attend one of the monthly meetings at United Way. We’ve both been involved ever since.
What have you gained from being part of this organization?
I have definitely been able to build quality relationships with other HAHMP members who are now a great influence in my life both personally and professionally. Frida Villalobos, the Manager of Communications at the Houston Area Women’s Center is one amazing person I have met through the organization. I look up to Frida, her amazing work in the community as well as her incredible support in my own projects. I was also able to meet Ray Ruiz, Director of El Gato Media Network, in one of the HAHMP board meetings. Last year Ray published a newspaper article where he featured me in an interview about young Latina entrepreneurs. There are also plenty of opportunities to volunteer for various events co-sponsored by HAHMP like the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Conference and a Town Hall Meeting at Rice University. There are so many great people and organizations that are a part of HAHMP. It really has been a great experience[...more...]
