Meet Brenda Arce – CanvasRebel Magazine

We were lucky to catch up with Brenda Arce recently and have shared our conversation below.

Brenda, appreciate you joining us today. Can you tell us the backstory behind how you came up with the idea?

My career has been in the staffing industry for over 16 years. I manage our Miami operations for contract and contract to hire roles in the administrative and accounting field for Fortune 500 company – Robert Half. I have always been active when it comes to being a leader for topics related to DEI. Though my work with Robert Half as a DEI ambassador and by my volunteer work with The Latina Pro a movement to helps the Latina community to grow professionally and personally though the power of networking. But it was tapping into my personal experiences as growing up as a Puerto Rican in United States that made me decide to write a Children’s Book on such an important topic as diversity and self-acceptance.

My father was in the army and we did not have the resources to be traveling back to Puerto Rico when I was younger and we also did not have the technology we have today. Growing up it was very difficult for me to understand my hispanic heritage.
