[/av_textblock] [av_codeblock wrapper_element='' wrapper_element_attributes=''] [powerpress] [/av_codeblock] [av_textblock size='' font_color='' color=''] Welcome to Episode # 005! NOTE: You can download the podcast to your computer or listen to it here on the website. I. Introduction Update: We're On the Cover of Westword. A huge thanks to the writer, Kyle Harris for doing a great job. Check out the article by clicking the link in our action steps! Speaking Engagements: North High School has invited us to join their community for the day to count Enyes (ñ)'s! #EnyeCounts. What a great idea! We are also scheduled to speak at Inner City Parish in Denver in the coming weeks. If you are connected with a school and want to setup a speaking engagement with us email us at Project Enye (ñ) Socials: Our First Enye (ñ) Social at the Sie Film Center was so much fun. We decided to push all of the lounge tables together making for a more community feeling. With the liveliness of a community table, we got the idea of having Enye (ñ) dinner socials at different restaurants. This is being planned now for Denver but will very soon be expanded to different areas of the country soon! We are also planning to have a cooking social so stay tuned for how to attend this event! If you are interested in hosting an event in your city, please email us at II. Courage Shout Outs: Joe - Our podcast transcriber, we found out is a Project Enye (ñ) fan and we are so grateful! He also happens to be a chef, so if you are in Miami,visit his restaurant, Mash Potato! Violetta - Thank you for the lovely email, she gave us a great hashtag - #1in16million and is the first Enye to make herself count on our #enyescount map! Bianca Dominguez (featured in our fourth episode) - We want to give a shout out to her for having the courage to show up at our Enye (ñ) Social and be there while the whole party watched her vignette. It took a lot of courage for you to share your story AND to show up and face the people who have just heard your story! Bianca's video was well received at the the event and online. We have almost 1,000 views in less than a week! This many views nearly doubled our last week's vignette views. Also, stay tuned, an upcoming vignette will be even bigger because we have a celebrity. III. More on Courage #EnyesCount We are committed to counting 1% of all Enye's (ñ)'s or 160,000 Enyes! In doing so, on the website we have created an interactive map where an Enye (ñ) can answer where you, your mother and father were born respectfully. This info will be represented in the map and leader board showing where you are from in the US, and where your parents are from. Are you an Enye (ñ)? Stand up and be counted right here. #EnyesCount! The thing about our goal for counting 160,000 Enyes: We realize it takes courage to have ambitious goals. Listening to a show, you can see we are authentic and real and over time you will be able to see the growth and the milestones. Then Henry asks what the most courageous thing Denise has done for this project. She said it was her steadfast commitment. No matter what, she would be committed to making this happen.
