Guest speaker at Omega Phi Beta Sorority's Philanthropic Banquet.
Note from Omega Phi Beta's President (Alpha Chapter), Karen Guzman:
Why MPFrias? - MP encompasses what a strong and empowered woman should be. As a diverse organization made up of sisters with a variety of ethnicities and coming from different neighborhoods, we appreciate MP's pride in being from NYC with a Dominican background. Many of our very own sisters connect with her on this level. As a woman willing to inspire others, she is able to share her thoughts and experiences in her writing. As advocates for a cause we are very passionate about - Domestic Violence awareness, we value MP Frias' efforts to empower women and commend her on the strength to share a part of herself through her work. As an organization that focuses on the empowerment of our gender and all that is beautiful within our Womanhood, we are confident in presenting MP Frias at our banquet as a woman who embodies such qualities.
As a guest speaker - sharing her thoughts and goals for empowering women to our UAlbany Community, and the large support system that OPBSI has. Mpfrias' attendance will be highly acknowledged and appreciated within our community, as many students connect with being from New York City; growing up facing unforeseen circumstances and still, without a doubt, progressing - as many of our peers are first generation college students; sharing the Latino culture; and many, although it is not spoken about often face many struggles. Empowering and focusing on the progression of us as a people is our message to all.
