EPGD Law Shining Star: Valeria Hinojosa


We have an amazing special guest for this Shining Star spotlight interview. We got the chance to interview a good friend of the firm, Valeria Hinojosa, Conscious Founder and influencer of WaterThruSkin & WTS Connect!

Here is what you need to know about Valeria:

Vegan. Yogi. Social entrepreneur. Risk-taker. She worked in the Private Banking Industry as a VP for almost 5 years until she switched it all to start WaterThruSkin- Miami’s blog about a lifestyle with a conscience. Since then, she’s been traveling the world visiting the most exotic, eco-friendly, and soul-enriching places not only to acquire a vast knowledge of different cultures, green design and plant-based cuisine but also to promote new eco-friendly and cruelty-free brands, products, and hotels she works with. In the past 4 years since WTS’ inception, Valeria and her team have reviewed and promoted over 300 brands and hotels worldwide.
In 2017, Valeria also founded WTS Connect. The first conscious blogger agency with a reach of over 22 million worldwide consumers focused on sustainability and ethics. As it stands, she’s also been featured in FORBES, SELF, TELEMUNDO, COSMO, and AIRBNB, to name a few.

Now, here’s what we found out about Valeria!

1. What, or who, are you a “closet” fan of?
Emma Watson and Gisele Bundchen. Both sustainable fashion gurus!

2. What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Plant herbs and paint mandalas on my walls

3. What is the most annoying question that people ask you?
Arguments about veganism being unhealthy and not nature-friendly

4. Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at.
Visualization and empathy.

5.What’s a favorite family memory that has stuck with you into your adult life? Why?
All the vacations I spent at my family’s vineyard in Bolivia. That’s where my connection with nature was born.

6. What would you do with your “15 minutes” of fame?
Use them to promote things that have a positive ripple effect

7. Have you ever won anything? What was it?
Yes. Track and field and tennis medals and trophies.

8. Who would you choose to be your mentor, if you had the choice?
Carmen Busquets (she already is) and Richard Branson

9. What’s your most significant current challenge?
I transformed my passions into my career; hence, the hardest challenge is knowing when to take a break from work.

We can’t thank Valeria enough for taking the time out of her busy schedule and endless travel plans to indulge us with her responses. If you would like to get in contact with Valeria and find out more about her travels and products, you can find her on instagram under the handle @waterthruskin or you can click here to email her.

We don’t know about you guys but suddenly, we feel the need to look into getting some reiki treatment with Patty Fuenzalida!
