Inspiring Latina of the Week: Marcela Aguilar, Senior Director For Gap

Marcela Aguilar

How do you feel that you impact the Latino community with your job?

We try to create meaningful experiences and marketing communications that have a positive impact on all of our customers. I personally get a lot of satisfaction when a see a little boy or girl wearing a GAP hoodie!

You recently gave birth to a son. How has new motherhood changed you both personally and professionally?

It’s early to tell… but clearly my free time is golden and priorities have shifted a little both personally and professionally. At the same time, I want to be a better woman for my little man. It’s very inspiring.

What gives you the most pride about being a Latin woman?

Everything. I am very lucky to have been born in Costa Rica and be able to bring my language, culture and experiences to this amazing country full of opportunities.
