Latinas Making a Difference

Posted on Sep 21 2017 - 8:29pm by Marjoriet Matute

There is NOTHING that I love more (other than my kids) than helping people. It is the driving force that feeds my soul and motivates me to continue reinventing myself. Aside from that, connecting with people and empowering come in as a close second. One of the most valuable tools I use is social media and if you use it right, you’ll meet exceptional people. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Alexis myself, but in effort to raise money for my nonprofit’s Halloween party last year, this stranger took from her own and sent in a donation so the kids in attendance could enjoy a safe and super lit party. Her generosity did not go unnoticed and will forever be appreciated.

So, with the recent tragedies in Mexico and Puerto Rico, as an owner of a nonprofit, people look to me for ways to help. Well, Alexis has my full support and I encourage you all to not only support her business, but her cry to help the victims of this massive attack from Mother Nature.

As she stated on her IG page, ”Β In an effort to contribute as best I can and in solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico and Mexico, I have decided to reduce the price of all “Yo Soy” necklaces to $25 and donate 100% of the proceeds to organizations assisting in relief efforts due to Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquake. This sale will run from 9/21-10/31.
Please share and let’s help our people. πŸ™πŸ½


So, in effort to provide an outlet for you to help the people suffering, why not treat yourself to one of her signature, “YO SOY” plates – represent your culture, gift it to a friend or donate to a cause. Whatever you do, know that just as you are a stranger doing your part to help, someone is on the receiving end eternally grateful. The power and connection of GIVING is an unreal soul settling feeling and I reassure you – you’ll be a better, AND FASHIONABLE, person after you sent in your order.


Alexis Joanna is an online boutique brought to you by a lover of accessories, offering jewelry, accessories and more, meant to empower and inspire unity among Latina women.The dream for this site is to provide affordable, quality jewelry for fashionistas and accessory lovers on a budget. After all, a girl can never have too much,right? It is with that in mind, that I wanted to have a shop which caters to the every day woman.

Ama tu piel! Love your skin, and let’s celebrate our differences. In a society that’s constantly trying to convince us we’re “too much of this” or “not enough of that”- “Yo Soy” is our signature collection that was created to empower and remind you that you are beautiful just the way you are. I present to you my version of the Latina proverbial rainbow- beautiful Queen, dark brown, light brown, light and everything in between- or what I call: Latina, Afro Latina, Morena, Canela, Caramelo, Indiecita, Blanquita, Taina or my favorite, Cafe Con Leche, because our rainbow has sabor! So, which are you?!


I hope you enjoy the collections as much as I do.
