“Conexion had the pleasure of working with Anna Foster over the last couple of years. The personal branding session she created and facilitated for Conexion, really got the cohort thinking and reflecting on some important issues. Individually and hopefully collectively they came to a deeper sense of the importance of Brand. At Conexion we hope to impact the larger dialogue on the contributions that HispanicLatinos make – an asset vs. a deficit. Anna’s Branding session provided an opportunity to think about how we present ourselves in all the facets of our lives. I admire Anna’s entrepreneurial spirit and she serves as a great role model to our participants. Conexion is thankful for Anna’s generous support of our mission! “ – Phyllis Barajas Conexion- Founder & Chief Executive Officer
