Nationwide Totalmente Latina Tour Entices Teen Girls with Mix of Dynamic Celebrities and Latinia Flavor

Mente, Cuerpo y Espíritu (mind, body and spirit). In a quest to empower Latina teen girls to build a healthy self-image of mind, body and spirit, Procter & Gamble has gathered some of the hottest Latina celebrity panelists and experts for the first ever Totalmente Latina Tour (TLT). With a stop in San Diego this Saturday, TLT promises to infuse audiences with real-life inspiration and the tools necessary to manage peer pressure, recognize cultural expectations, nurture meaningful relationships and build a positive self-image.

Designed for today’s Latina teen, the TLT Forum offers a fun-filled and informative experience that encourages girls to learn from each other and collectively build a stronger generation of young women.

Female celebrity panelists such as telenovela star Adamari López of Amigas y Rivales, Lesley Ann Machado of Latin Access, fitness guru Gloria Araya-Quinlan and motivational speakers, who all have their own stories of struggle-and-triumph, will share their secrets about what it takes to be a successful Latina woman in today’s world. Girls will also receive useful tips on how to truly accept themselves and the opportunity to discuss common issues affecting their lives amongst their peers.

“Considering the many challenges that Latina girls face daily, I feel it’s important to encourage and inspire them to follow their dreams,” stated TLT panelist, Adamari López. “The TLT is a powerful experience featuring celebrity panelists and real-life solutions to many issues teens encounter today. Most importantly, TLT demonstrates that success originates from within; you just have to go for it!”

Immediately following the Forum, TLT attendees will be treated to the rhythmic sounds of Latin-inspired live performances from MDO where participants can bailar (dance) to the latest chart topping songs.

The day concludes at the Expo where attendees can participate in several fun photo opportunities and indulge in “all things beautiful.” Attendees can also receive free beauty tips, makeovers, indulgent massages and free samples from a variety of Procter & Gamble sponsored brands as well as national and local media partners.

The Totalmente Latina Tour will take place Saturday, August 24, 2002, 1:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the San Diego Convention Center, 111 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.
