My role model is Karla Martinez the co-host of the morning show Despierta America on Univision. Karla Martinez was born in Chihuahua and she studied at the University of Texas at El Paso. I used to watch her back in the year 2000 in a television show called “Control”. I loved her attitude and her bright smile but after knowing that she graduated with a degree in electronic media at UTEP, I felt more connected to her. Now every time I walk through the UTEP campus, I think of Karla because she started like me and now she is an influential figure in the Hispanic market. She is the spokesperson for Colgate and General Mills and she has hosted many shows for Univision. Now that I’m studying multimedia journalism at UTEP, I get inspired to follow my dreams like Karla Martinez did. She is a very humble and beautiful person. Yesterday for latinitas I twitted that she was my role model and she sent me a sweet and inspiring message via twitter. I will never forget Karla’s nice words.
