Diversity Expert Speaker Pegine Says Latinas Can Become Leaders

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hispanic women can become leaders if they follow the path to education, says Pegine, a motivational speaker, author and businesswoman. She is the spokesperson for The Clorox Company and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) who have created a $120,000 scholarship fund for Hispanic youth and Latina mothers.

Appearing live on Univision's "Despierta America," the most-widely viewed show in America, Pegine said recently, "It is important for Hispanics to feel there is opportunity through education."

Pegine, a former gang member in the Bronx, knows firsthand about life's challenges and rewards. She is now going across the country delivering inspiring keynote speeches that instill hope and pride in Hispanic women – and urging them to apply for these special scholarships.

During my teenage years, I was a member of a female gang, until I decided I wanted to become an entrepreneur. I headed to college where I earned bachelor's and master's degrees. This educational background plus my determination allowed me to achieve dreams," said Pegine, who delivers leadership speeches to numerous U.S. military departments. Her message helps motivate leaders in a diverse world.

In those speeches, Pegine shares her story of personal transformation. She offers these tips from her new book, " I've Got the Power."

"We each have the power within to lead our own life if you follow these ideas," she said.

  • Know you are valuable.
  • Appreciate what came before you, including your heritage and the sacrifices of your family.
  • Be a leader in your own life.
  • Share your visions of your future.
  • Speak positively.
  • Seek opportunities to grow.
  • Celebrate each success no matter how insignificant it might be.

"Moving forward one action at a time is the key," said Pegine. The first step is to inquire about the scholarship program, "Dream Without Limits," by going to
