National Hispanic Heritage Month is every year from September 15 to October 15, it recognizes the contributions made from the Hispanic culture to the United States. The celebratory month started off as a week in 1968, but by 1988 it was officially made into a month. This year the theme is “Honoring our Heritage. Building our Future.”
Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch is a U.S. Army veteran with Spanish roots, an incredible story and important message. As a child, Consuelo faced poverty and discrimination, especially with her education. Fortunately, she managed to overcome all the adversity by graduating from college. She then joined the army, and made history when she became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army.
After retiring from the army, Consuelo decided that she wanted to give back to the youth who might be experiencing the same challenges that she did. Shortly after in 1996, she founded the Educational Achievement Services, Inc. (EAS), a human development company. EAS strives to inspire, motivate and develop the next generation of leaders.
Consuelo is passionate about guiding young people to their full potential. She serves as an example to the National Hispanic Heritage Month’s theme by helping to build the futures of the youth.
In addition to all this, Consuelo is a renowned and passionate speaker who shares her story with people of all ages. From topics like education, leadership and cultural diversity, she connects with her audience and delivers presentations that truly resonate with them.
