The National Magazine of the Successful American Latino: Editor’s note

Editor’s note

Patrizia Rossi

All living things constantly evolve and adapt to the times and their environment, and Latino Leaders is no exception to this rule. In our case, the prominence of the Hispanic community and our growing readership have compelled us to advance and develop in order to reflect the ever-varying forms of Hispanic leadership in the United States. And now, as we enter our third year of circulation, our progress is apparent in the new logo and fresh designs, but most importantly in the entertaining sections focusing more on the diversified roles of today’s essential Latino leaders.

Among these new highly engaging sections you will find the “Proust Questionnaire,” which goes beyond the conventional interview by posing a series of questions in outstanding Latinos that quiz their thoughts, values, and experiences. The questionnaire, which was once cleverly answered by French author Marcel Proust and an amusing bourgeois pastime, serves as a subtle indication of the person’s character and permits the reader to draw his or her own conclusions.

“Gallery” is also a new addition to our pages that aims to depict a series of images of Latinos in distinct contexts. This issue focuses on Wall Street and Latinos as a vital energy behind economic recovery.

We hope “Shelf Life” will help readers to make wise book, music, and film selections. It simultaneously promotes Hispanic authors, musicians, and filmmakers who are producing fine work that is not always given due credit or a clamorous fanfare.

And finally “LL Focus” is an informative section that features the latest information on subjects that are of specific interest to our readers, such as technology, business opportunities, healthcare, and well-being. Our aim is to keep our readers informed of new developments and the latest advances in the Hispanic market. “LL Focus” makes its debut with rave reviews of the all-new Camry, an in-depth article on the Internet as a tool for your next auto purchase, and the history of the delightfully elegant Jaguar.

With so much packed into our pages, it is surprising that there is still room for the articles that have become our trademark. Our cover story is about 20-year news veteran and Noticiero Univision co-anchor Maria Elena Salinas, who has managed to combine journalism with social service. However, despite her many exclusive stories, her best story to date is most definitely her own.
