San Juan mayor delivers inspirational message at Mt. Holyoke College

Hampden County

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz brought her inspirational message from Puerto Rico to Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley Thursday night.

Mayor Cruz spoke before a packed Chapin Auditorium on Mount Holyoke’s campus. She has been a tireless voice for the people of Puerto Rico, as they recover from two devastating hurricanes that left the island without electricity for months.

She delivered a message of leadership during times of crisis.

“This mayor has been more than just a figure for women,” said Diana Lozano of Holyoke. “She is a figure for people who want to change the world.”

Judging by the reaction of the audience, Diana Lozano was one of the hundreds of people inspired by Mayor Cruz at Mount Holyoke College.
