“I am very grateful for the privilege of being selected as editor for the column “Hispanic/Latinx Voices: Stories from our Community ‘’ of the Global Health eMagazine.

My desire for a better community has been the guide to introduce me to community work, specifically in the Hispanic/Latinx community. This experience has allowed me to see and treat people in our community with great human and professional values; men and women who just need a platform to share their stories and amplify the voices of others.

Our vision for the column “Hispanic/Latinx Voices: Stories From Our Community” is based on the interest of making our people, culture, values, and points of view known and at the same time motivate our audience to be more interested in our community.

With this, we seek greater visibility for our community, the opportunity for our people to expose their talents and abilities to communicate and for others to know our true stories. I encourage you to follow us each month as we feature inspiring stories from our Hispanic/Latinx community in the city of Danbury, Connecticut.

No Bullying Be Nice

Nathalie Feliz Dipre - a.k.a. Tia Candy

Step into a world of inspiration and positivity as we present Gala Kids Awards night. Nathalie Feliz Dipre, the creative force behind Tiaa Candy. Born on August 30, 1992, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Nathalie, also known as Tiaa Candy, has embarked on an incredible journey to spread love, confidence, and awareness among children and families in our community.

Nathalie’s multilingual abilities, including fluency in Spanish, English, and Sign Language, have allowed her to connect deeply with diverse audiences. Her parents’ deafness motivated her to learn Sign Language, a skill she uses to bridge gaps and promote inclusivity. Since 2016, Nathalie has called Danbury, Connecticut, home, and from there, she’s been transforming lives.

Tiaa Candy isn’t just an artist and child entertainer; she’s a visionary on a mission to combat bullying in all its forms. With a heartfelt motto of “NO BULLYING BE NICE,” Tiaa Candy’s performances are more than just entertainment—they’re a platform for change. She uses the power of music, dance, and games to instill confidence, self-worth, and the ability to stand against bullying.

The upcoming Gala Kids Award on Sunday, September 17, 2023, marks a monumental event in this journey. It’s a celebration of young hearts and minds, a call to action against bullying, and a reminder to embrace kindness. With an array of programs that teach kids to stand up against bullying, work as a team, and lead with compassion, this event is a must-attend.

Nathalie’s collaboration with local and international organizations showcases her commitment to fostering change. From schools to community centers, her impact resonates far and wide. Through events like the Easter Talent Show, Heroes and Princess, Mother’s Day Celebration, and Christmas Shows, she has consistently spread her message of positivity.

The Tiaa Candy Squad, a group of talented youngsters, adds another layer to this movement. Their performances encompass singing, dancing, acting, and poetry, showcasing their dedication to making the world a better place.

Let’s support Nathalie’s mission to empower the next generation, eradicate bullying, and build a world where kindness prevails. Witness the impact of her work in the stories of families who’ve emerged from depression and found newfound confidence.

In the words of young poet Liamel Valdez: “Let’s end the bullying now!”

Join us on this remarkable journey towards a brighter, kinder future.
