This month we celebrate International Women’s Month, and we highlight the resilience, strength, wisdom, and beauty of women all over the world.
To continue the celebration throughout the year, we are introducing a monthly Women We Admire series that will feature a special woman in our community. Someone we admire, someone that uplifts other women and whose positivity and encouragement has kept us going. It’s a reminder to never forget who might be inspired by your journey, your successes, your perseverance or just by simply being you.

In Latin American and Caribbean culture, it has become one of the most iconic pieces of clothing because of its widespread use and distinctive design. Despite its far-reaching popularity, the circumstances of the guayabera's origin and stylistic development are not exactly known. Pieces of the history of this shirt can be found in various legends, archives, advertisements, historical photographs, articles and other sources of information from different centuries.
