This month, Consuela worked their magic with our Executive Director, Jill Gonzalez, at our Women Storybook Project office. Through the “It’s Not About the Bag Program,” coordinated by Consuela Styles, the team was able to celebrate and uplift the excellent and inspiring work Jill Gonzalez does inside and outside of Women Storybook Project. Jill was awarded a “Certificate of Awesomeness” and her very own Consuela bag.
Additionally, the award came about through a previous nominee, Jenna Taylor, a new Executive Director of the organization Independent Identity. Jenna was also awarded the “Certificate of Awesomeness” in the past year, and she thought to nominate Jill as she has been a huge support system and role model for Jenna Taylor and the work she does at Independent Identity:
Independent Identity moved into building M in July. As we were moving in and getting settled Jill stopped by to introduce herself and say hi. From that day forward Jill, and all of WSP, was welcoming and friendly. Our group of adults with disabilities has been embraced and we are grateful for such wonderful building-mates. As I have been learning my role as Executive Director on my own, Jill has had an open door every time I need help, have a question, or just need to vent. I am so thankful for her mentorship and friendship. As a Viva Babe myself, I knew I had to nominate Jill for the Certificate of Awesomeness. Jill makes the world a better place not only through the work at WSP but also in the lives of all who are lucky enough to know her.
Consuela’s mission and the secret to their bags are not only acknowledging the superstar wearing the bag but also the journey of each bag as it is put on by individuals who create a positive impact in our world. We congratulate Jill Gonzalez for all her hard work and thank Jenna Taylor for this beautiful award that Consuela bags has given us.
