Episode 27: Mother's Day Edition - Xolo Maridueña and Carmelita Ramírez-Sánchez

Hispanicize Hangout is back with a very special Mother’s Day edition featuring the star of Netflix’s ‘Cobra Kai’, Xolo Maridueña and his Mother, Carmelita Ramírez-Sánchez, Executive Director of the Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory. As Mother’s Day is upon us, we know that in the Latinx community, the matriarch is everything and the relationship we have with our mothers is held in the highest regard. Our Mothers guide us. They are our earliest teacher and they show us that resilience is the key in life. Whether things are going good or bad, our Mami is our compass, our northstar and we always find our way back to her strength and love that she showered us with in the past and/or present. In this episode we hear from a rising star whose early influence in the world of creative arts, from his Mom, Carmelita, clearly shaped his aspirations and gave him the ganas to tackle Hollywood and go after his dreams. We hope you enjoy this special Hispanicize Hangout with Xolo and Carmelita.
