Gloria V.

We're all just walking each other home
We're thrilled to announce our newest Viva Babe, Gloria! Surrounded by Mi Gente ATX at breakfast, Gloria was completely taken aback to be recognized with the Viva Babe award. Her journey epitomizes resilience, determination, and unwavering dedication to uplifting others along the way.
Gloria is an extraordinary community builder and a beacon of light, love, and support for women of all ages in our community. Having moved to Austin in 1995, she credits her success to the support of other women who have stood by her side.
Her impact within the Family Engagement Support Office for Austin Independent School District is truly transformative. With a laser focus on Title I Schools, Gloria is a champion of collaboration and a powerful amplifier of resources, providing crucial support to families facing socioeconomic challenges.
Her tireless dedication is evident in her involvement in hosting 100 community events in just four months, all to advocate for the passing of the historic 2.44 billion dollar bond for Austin ISD in 2022. This is a testament to her unwavering commitment to making a lasting impact on marginalized communities.
Gloria's favorite quote, "We're all just walking each other home" by Ram Dass, encapsulates her philosophy of unity and support. Her dedication extends beyond her professional life as she volunteers for causes close to her heart, including supporting the Latino community in Austin.
As Gloria's friend and nominator, Daniela shared that Gloria's infectious positivity and selflessness inspire everyone she meets. She exemplifies the spirit of giving back and creating opportunities for those who need them the most. Gloria has guided Daniela and many others to become more involved in community organizations like HABLA and Latinas Unidas.
Congratulations, Gloria, on this well-deserved recognition! Your light shines brightly, illuminating the path for others to follow.
