Dallas, Texas, October 5th, 2016- Nina Vaca was honored to keynote the launch of the White House’s Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows Program in her hometown of Dallas, Texas. “The YLAI Program is a life-changing initiative to bring together young entrepreneurs and social innovation visionaries from all across the Caribbean and Latin America,” says Vaca. “Over the next four weeks, these young leaders will be given the tools and encouragement they need to make their communities and lives better through entrepreneurship. It’s a program with a powerful message- they can do it.” After the program launch in Dallas, Texas, the YLAI Professional Fellows dispersed to twenty different US cities to begin their fellowships.
