Here's more about this latina boss babe...
My name is Solmayra Jacobo. I am a 27 years old are a proud Latina. My parent’s are from Michoacan, Apatzingan and migrated to Los Angeles to the 90’s for a better living.
I recently graduated class of 2020 from the California State University of Los Angeles in Business Management, which was a no brainer. I have always belonged in business.
My parent’s raised my siblings and I to believe in hard work and most importantly the power we hold within us to create a better life for us and those in our surrounding. After graduating
recently from college I decided it was time to invest all the energy I had given college and my previous employers into my own dreams, so I quit my job to fully work on Sole Los Angeles.
Thus far, it has been a challenge but I can ultimately say that things are falling into place. I don’t think I could have even been a part of this special event if I hadn’t taken the will to believe in me and my dreams.
How did Sole Los Angeles get started?
Sole Los Angeles started out of an impulse. The idea subconsciously lived within me since 18. All it took was for someone to tell me “no’, that specifically being my former employers. I realized that if I wanted something to change or had to be done, it was up to me. I believed I could, and so I did.
I have always known. I don’t know how to really describe it to you but Ive always known this lifestyle was for me. It’s never felt foreign to me, it’s always felt like home.
