Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria
Actress, Founder of the Eva Longoria Foundation

I was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, just a few hours from the U.S.-Mexico border. My family has lived there for nine generations, under multiple flags. As a Mexican-American growing up in a city with a large, established Hispanic community, my hybrid identity was not unique; many friends and classmates experienced a similar cultural mix. Growing up in this vibrant community left me with a strong desire to give back to them in the same way that they gave to me.

My childhood foreshadowed the direction we are moving as a nation. It is no secret that the U.S. Latino population is expanding -- we currently number more than 50 million and will account for 60% of the nation's population growth through 2050. Throughout our country, Latinos live in and contribute to, an increasingly diverse America. And for women especially, balancing the demands of intertwined cultures can be challenging.

Migo Productions

MIGO Productions was founded by Walter “DJ Menace” Chavez in the Summer/Fall of 2002.  MIGO Productions began as Walter increased his DJ skills inspired by his cousin Geovany.  One summer vacation trip to Puerto Rico changed Walter’s musical focus to Reggaeton. Walter introduced Reggaeton as a mainstream music genre in Latin/International & Hip hop clubs and events in the area.  Walter had amazing charisma and audiences loved him and connected to him through his music. To expand the Reggaeton explosion to new audiences and publicize MIGO and his talent, Walter created two great Reggaeton mixes which he distributed among his supporters, Various Reggaeton and Reggaeton Mix Tape Vol. 3. The response he received from these mixtapes was amazing. During this same time, Walter began appearing and producing on local artists' tracks. Many of these artists and groups worked closely with Walter to produce and market their music and his talent. Walter was always looking for new music and different sounds to inspire his mixes and techniques. Walter became even more motivated to continue pursuing his ultimate dreams. Unfortunately, Walter passed away in a car accident on Christmas Eve morning, December 24, 2003.  Since, Walter’s family & friends have worked close together to keep his dreams alive through MIGO Productions.  Two of MIGO DJs learned their skills directly from Walter, DJ Los El Genio and DJ Uncensored, countless others have been inspired by him.  In honor of Walter, the MIGO family has given focus to the community in forms of community and youth-based events showcasing local talent and providing family-friendly entertainment. Some of the events are hosted in front of the DJ Menace memorial on 14th Street & Quincy Street in NW.
