A La Megas, welcome back to another episode of Impodida Latina podcast. I'm your host. Read about Tista, and today I have Rossio Garza, the content creator and social media influencer behind Risa's Rizzo's our Youtube Channel highlights the importance of a bracing naturally curly hair and focuses on proper curl care for multiple generations. Her bilingual platform has gained rapid recognition and reached over more than two hundred thousand subscribers. As a newly wed and new mom, rocill shares lifestyle, curls and Mommy Hood in a raw, authentic way. This young Latina has been featured in Latinacom as one of the top ten natural hair bloggers you should be following, NBC, Lettino as one of the ten lettina bloggers you should be watching, and Isaiah as one of the top twenty five social media influencers. Lett you know, social media influencers, and she's also at Tecla Award winner and, above all, she's actually my cousin you guys. So I'm super excited to have you here today to see what banks. So much for joining me. I feel like it's an honor being here. I feel like I'm super excited because on the first family member on your podcast, but then, you know, just excited in general to be here. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, it's you know, it's one of the crazy things, and I've talked about this in the past and a couple of my personal interviews. You've been very influential in me finding my voice in podcasting and just being bold about utilizing social media, because you were so unafraid and you were like the first person in our family to really take that plunge and say I'm going to turn this into a career. Yeah, I mean when it all started, basically it was a hobby and so everybody was just like what is she doing? And it was until, I guess everyone in the family started to see what you can actually make out of this Hobbi tern business is when everyone's sort of you know, it was like, okay, I see where you you have going on here. So yeah, and you know, it's really interesting. So, for all those listening to this episode, we come from a lane of entertainers. So our family things, yeah, Own Circle Maya, yeah, and you know, and from there we've had a lot of really awesome growth and I want to say that some of our boldness comes from, like, you know, our family members being truppies, artists and like acrobats and yeah, so I wire it's in our bloodline, I think, to be an entertainer and but also in entrepreneur and so I think that, you know, with what I've done with the suffer easels and what you're doing with your podcast, I think it's just, you know, it's natural, it's it's who we are. So tell us a little bit more about who you are. Now I know you very well, but everybody's who who's listening doesn't really know you so well.

So what makes Rossio Garza? It's it's hard for me to hear. Well, I'm not like in a bad way, it's hard for me to hear it because I'm a newly way right. So, even typing in my Bios, like you know, I want to instinctively put or see on one because that's my maiden name, and I'm like, wait a second, that's not you know, it's not part of a well, it's part of my identity, identity, but it's not, you know, I guess the new me right now. So, yeah, yeah, so what makes Rocio ours a Rocio Garza? Well, I guess what makes mutual. See, all right, let's see. I have an entrepreneurial spirit, right. I knew going into school and different jobs that I had that I wanted to do something for myself to help others. I was actually working as drafter for an engineering firm for a couple of years and in the wave of layoffs in what was it two thousand and fifteen, I think somewhere on there, the company that I was working for instead of laying us off, they cut our hours. So with all the extra time that we had, I took upon this hobby of Youtube because I actually lost my curls to heat damage. So that's kind of like the gist behind what Riesa resols is. It's a space where I'm able to help others embrace their naturally curly hair, because for a very long time I wasn't doing that for myself. I've always had curly hair, but it wasn't something that I was like in love with because growing up I always saw people with straight hair and it was a standard of beauty to have straight hair and curls were just kind of something that you didn't see in the media. So it's just not anything that I was really looking up to. So when I lost my curls, I did everything possible to get them back because I felt like I guess lost a bit of my identity at that point. So when I was doing everything possible to get them back, you know, with all these treatments and follow me these methods and things like that, a friend of mine was like, what did you do, like give me a step by step routine or tutorial showing me what you did so I can do it and I can get my curls back to so that's kind of how how Youtube started for me. I did one video and in that video I had, you know, comments and subscribers that I thought was family, and eventually I got some questions from user names that I didn't recognize and I thought at first it was family members were creating accounts to make me feel better. And then, you know, somebod y'all were like no, we don't have time for you, and I so I was like, Oh, these are actually people that I don't know that are asking questions that I have answers to. So let me create another video helping, you know, this person with a question that they have about curls that I, you know, I guess have some kind of knowledge or experience on, and it just sort of snowballed into, I guess what it is now. In I guess, a matter of a year or two, somebody realize that I was Lettinga and there weren't that many letting has on youtube creating content for curly here or educational videos around curly hair. So as broken as my Spanish, I guess was at that time, I was like, you know, what? Let me do what I can. You know, whether it's for the subscribers that I had that I don't know, or even the cousins that we have, you know, in hunters or in Mexico, that are looking for tutorials and tips in their language, and I did the best that I could. You know, my Spanish isn't perfect, but I think that it's improval. Don't know if you target really you know, and I think it's doing a little bit better. But at that time I did everything that I could to open the space to more people that are that were looking for that kind of information. That was, God, I don't even know how long ago it was. I feel like it was about seven years ago, maybe seven or eight years ago. It grew really quickly once I started to create content in Spanish. I feel like the viewership in Spanish was a lot higher in that way, and so I feel...

...like in that moment I sort of struggled with continuing the whole bilingual content on Youtube, on Instagram, doing double the work, burning myself out and most of the most of the Times, and then I, as cheesy as it sounds, met a guy that was fantastic and amazing and everything that I was looking for, and it moved really quickly, as you know. You know, you met and within a year, you know, we were getting married, having a baby and and then the pandemic it and I realized in that year of solitude with my new husband that there was, like I was saying to you earlier, there was there's so much more to talk about for me than just deep conditioning. You know, there's so much more to talk about then how to wash your hair, how to sell your hair and all this stuff. It's like I knew at that time that I was ready to tell my personal story and my personal journey and all the other things that I wanted to share about my personal life, whether it's, you know, family, faith, travel, you know, the good and the bad and ugly about pregnancy and Mommy Hood and all of this encapsulated in the time of the pandemic, you know. So I'm kind of in this journey of transitioning and rebranding and that's all. I'm really excited to be on here because it's almost like you're the first person that's allowing me to amplify this voice of the new me, which isn't really the new me. Is the actual me. It's just, you know, me stepping out into the limelight without it being all about curls. I think it's really interesting to watch the transition of a person in general, especially when it's somebody so personal, is like a family member, but like really seeing you step into this confidence of who you truly are and like allowing that to be totally okay. And it sounds like you've gotten to that point where you're like, you know what, I want to talk about how I became the person that I am, and I think that that's beautiful that you want to one thank you for allowing me to give you the platform to start talking about that rebrand, but more or less also just to really see that it's not technically a rebrand, it's just allowing people to see who you are more at your core. And another thing, Rada, when I started, like I mentioned, it was a hobby right. It wasn't something that I intentionally was like, let me create this platform or this space where this is what I'm going to do and this is how it's going to grow and it's going to turn into this business. It was a hobby for a good year and a half or two years. I wasn't making any money. I was just doing it for the love of helping other people. But I say that in a manner of like I never wanted it to just be about hair, but that's sort of what it fell into. And so for a very long time there was this like hole in me that I don't know. It was like this void that wanted to be filled with who I really was. You know what I mean? Like it's weird to say as a content creator, because we want to be our most authentic cells, but part of me felt like for a very long time I wasn't really being truly meat like all of me, I was just another curly girl in your feet kind of thing, like showing you how to sprint your hair and flipping it, and it was all about beauty. And I'm just like, you know, you've seen me half the time. So I look like that most of the time. No, I've got my hair and Messy Bun. I'm not working makeup, you know, like my shirts not ironed. You know, it's just like I look like a hot meds most of the time, but that's the reality and I love it and I feel like I'm in a place now where I embrace it because it's who I really am, and so why not share that with others who maybe can find something to relate to with that? Do you think that this transition into this space has a lot to do with becoming a new mother, or do you think it's just something like, Oh my God, yeah, there's something about I don't know, I would say maybe...

...something about pregnancy. For me personally, there's something about pregnancy and being a mom that forces you into this role of needing to be wrong like you have. You have to be yourself. You can't be anyone else for this other being that you're creating right like, I don't know if I'm explaining that right, in my mind it is. I have to be just me. I can't rely on anyone else's influence or anyone else's being for me to be the person that my daughter needs for me to be. And I want to show that to her too, you know, I want to show her that she doesn't need to look at any other mirrors or any other you know, people to influence her to be anybody other than help me. You know, that's a great moral to start it, or moral or also, like just a great standard, especially in a space right now in which people are influenced by others other lives on social media in general, and this is kind of how you built up your fan base. Not even fan base, but people who connect to you is because they want to see something that of themselves reflected back. That's a great thing to and still especially on a little girl who you know, will have the opportunity to see that reflected that. Yeah, and you'll. You learn a lot on the back end of being a content creator, whether it's on Youtuber, instagram or thing you have like the analytics that show you how you are progressing. If you're not doing well on something, it'll show you your insights on, you know, follower count and engagement and things like that, and so I spent so much time in the early years focusing on the numbers and focusing on like, how can I get more followers, how can I get more engagement and all this, and like, how can I get the the best photo and the best lighting and, you know, the best hair and angle and all this. Now it's just like last year. I realized in the middle of my pregnancy that I wanted to share about what was going on in real time, and I mean on top of feeling nauseous the first trimester and not having an energy to put on makeup and, you know, get all dolled up for a video, I just I wanted to share the realness and I've found I lost a significant amount of followers, like right at the peak of my pregnancy, right right before I had penelope, but I also gained a good amount of followers to so it just sort of balanced out. And so in my mind I was like, well, I lost people who maybe we're just in it for the hair, that were in it for the the makeup in the and and just like this little glimpse of who I am when I turn the camera on. But I gained all the other these other people who are interested in the authentic side of me, on the real side of me, like the part of me that shows everything rather than just what I put in my hair that day, you know. So it's it's good balance. I think it's healthy to be reminded that. You know, if you see the numbers dip, it's not like you shouldn't take it personally, because very early ones saken personally. I was like front of us, like what is going on? What am I doing wrong? But at the same time, it's like you there's there's a lot of the end of the tunnel and you know that might lose some for one reason, but you'll gain others for much more positive reason. It sounds interesting because that's also translated into podcasting as well. Is like a lot of people focus on the development of the audience and most of the time you should really be worried about how you come across like the most authentic self that you can be is really what truly attracts people to you. Right in, like your audience is now transitioning from one phase of life to the next with you. And...

...you know what more beauty is there in an audience? It's going to follow you through being who you genuinely are. So maybe you didn't even need those people in the first place. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I would agree. Yeah, shake them off, shake them, I know, shake those laters off. So would you have one word that you could use to describe your personal life experience so far? I don't say just this transitions, you know, just you go through one phase and if it works for you, great, if it doesn't work for you, you're able to transition into something that works for you hurry. I guess works in your favor. That's the only word that comes to mind when I'm thinking of where I am now and what I've been going through. Is just some it's just a manner of trans maybe also because in the last couple of years there's been so many transitions in my life, like back to back. You know, I mean you know, I know my own like you know would work, and you know my relationship and the baby and the pandemic. Is just like so much just happened in the last year. But that's the word that comes to mind, is just transition. You just you go through all these changes and you accommodate me, pivot and you, you, you, you step in directions that work in your favor. I guess it's the only thing I can think of. Hmm, what has been your favorite transition so far? Mommy Hood. That weird. Am I talking about my baby too much? Have I turned into one of those nons talked about baby all the time? Should I just bring her into this podcast as you can have them, you can be kind of yeah, no, I know it sounds so cheesy, but yeah, I think that's been my favorite part. Is just that's one of the biggest are the fastest transitions. That I'm trying to get used to is knowing that you know, you only have them at a certain age for so long, you know, and in a certain phase for so long, and it's it's scary, it's sad sometimes, but it's exhilarating because you you go through one phase, you're like, okay, what's next? You know what's what's what's coming up. You know. She's sort of in the stage where we're she's almost walking. So it's like you you do everything you can to get her past that phase with you, like, Oh shit, like do you know, need to baby prood everything. So, yeah, I guess momyhood right now would be things excited about. Yeah, you think you're growing with her at the same time, like both yell are growing together. Yeah, I would say so. I've learned so much about who I am and what I can handle with this new role in my life, what I have the patience for, what I can tolerate and what I'm just like. You know what? I I'll share something with you, and I guess it's not just with you, it's with the rest of the people who are listening right now. We Guy I've been. I've had to go to therapy because postpartum depression, post part of anxiety, post part of rage, like these are serious things that I don't think that I was mentally prepared for going into this. In all these shifts and changes that we've gone through with getting some open lb, as you know, in all these phases that she's in, I'm sort of like stuck in and I was stuck in this overprotective mommy mode of like meeting everything to be safe, like putting her in this bubble, not only because we had her in the middle of a pandemic, you know, and that itself was terrifying, but also, you know, I had an emergency c section, and so I had this breakthrough with my therapist the other day because I realized that in that moment of emergency and and going to surgery and all that, like, I I carry that weight with me of feeling like my body...

...failed me and therefore I filled my baby, and so I have to do everything to overcompensate and keep her safe. So I'm I've finally got to this point where I've forgiven myself. I let go of that mom guilt, and now she's just got free rain in the House and like you know, Larry, shouldn't you? You want to baby take are you know kind of thing. So it's being a mom. It's a learning experience and I think that every everything that I've learned in this new journey I've shared. I've gotten flat from some family members telling me that, you know, I maybe I overshare, and it could be possible, but I guess, having had the platform for this long and it just being in my nature to share more than what's necessary, I think I do that a lot now. But getting the feedback from my audience is so rewarding, not just knowing that, not just feeling validated and feeling heard and seeing, but also knowing that there are other women out there that are either anticipating that phase and Mommy Hood or have already gone through it and can relate. And so I feel like instead of me just speaking out into the universe and not having anybody hear me, like, I feel like I am not just contributing to this Mommy Hood community but also I feel like, you know, I don't like it's I feel welcomed absolutely and you know, think about all the people are your followers that either could potentially be going through post pardon them, and they don't know it, or are looking for an outlet or somebody to feel like, Oh my God, what I'm feeling is not just me. You continuously sharing that information could potentially be the one thing that connects them or influences them to go and seek some help.

How do you think your culture has affected your life? I feel like for a very long time I celebrated being Latina. It was part of my identity. It's something that I it's all I knew. Right it's I didn't see being Latina as a culture. I saw it as a race, like I saw it as like us and them, kind of thing. So I wanted to celebrate everything there was about being Latina and the more that I've learned about how it is our culture but not our race. I went through, you know, the the tour where I was talking about and educating other Latinas about being a black Latina, being after Latina and and and celebrating that part of your your identity too, because, as so many people that have black ancestors or, you know, an in our case, having our grandmother being a Black Latina, you know, and race not really being something that people who are let you know, want to talk about. And then everything that happened last year, you know, with the murder George Floyd and race being heavily talked about. I think I feel like I'm going off...

...topic. I feel like when it comes to like identity and like letting you that, and race, like I feel like they're just so much that I I want to talk about and share and I feel like I sort of like lost your question. It was just saying how culture influenced or affected your life, but I think it's really interesting that you bring up the concept of after letting need that, because in our family it's, like you said, we don't talk about race in our family, even though we're like basically every single color of the rainbow, and that blackness part of us wasn't necessarily even identified. It was really awesome that you put it out there on the forefront, because even our family members, I think, we're like, Whoa, we don't talk about that. We were taught our whole lives to better our race. When you learn about where you come from, when you when you are in a space where you're finally able to self identify, I guess is the only word I can come up with right now. I think it's your responsibility to share that information with others who might not know much about their culture or about their identity or their or their race, specifically their race. So I think that how it's sort of like influenced me and and how I use my my platform is I think it's important to share that information with others that might be oblivious to who they are, you know, and and what their culture really is. People see Latinos and they think we're all Mexican, you know, and we're not. Yeah, Latinos within other Latinos will be like, Oh, you know, are you Dominica? Are you Puerto Weken is like, no, I'm from Chila. You know Chila. I've never met anybody from Chili before. Like, tell me more about your culture, tell me more about your country. Sounds pretty interesting. It's like we still have a lot to learn ourselves in our own spaces and sometimes it's hard. I don't know if you have this experience, but for me sometimes it's hard to hold people accountable to understanding who we are when it's like we're literally still trying to understand, H who we are and accepting those parts of ourselves that we hid for so long. There was a negativity that happened, obviously, with what happened with George Floyd, but I also feel as though it opened up a door for others to really start accepting themselves and accepting the things that they tried to hide from. M Yeah, and you say hide from, I think that's a good way to put it, because I think in other circumstances there are Latinos that you know. I've had conversations with people and they're they're well aware of who they are but aren't willing to shine a light to it in certin certain circles of people. I don't know if you've ever, you know, knowing people like that that are that are just they're aware of their background and they would much rather, you know, like play this other role of pay. Well, I'm around this group of people, so let me, you know, shift. Yeah, I mean I think that's all like the DEC decolonization mindset is like once we really start to get to that point where we accept it as a community, that it's okay for us to not just be like the light skin, tiny feature, European, featured Latina, then you know, we can accept it in in social spaces. And I think what I really love about the next generation of that you knows that are growing up in the US now is like they are embracing their identity like one thousand. Yeah, and I'm I love it, though. Yeah, we've made it that for so, so long. I mean, okay, so another example. When I started the youtube channel, like I said, there were maybe a handful of people who were, let the you knows, talking about Natchal hair in that space. Now that I'm, you know, I guess,...

...evolving into this lifestyle. Mommy hoods still mentioned girls here in their kind of thing, I'm realizing that there aren't as many mommy bloggers or lifestyle bloggers that come from Latinas that have really big numbers or followings. You know, like it's or if there are, you know, maybe I just haven't found them yet. You know. And if there, if anyone's listening and you you know you are lifestylear mommy blogger and you are, letting not like hit me up, like I want to be your friend kind of thing. You know, it's we need to we need to come together as a community of leting knows and just support one another and let others know, hey, we're here and, like you said, be obnoxiously load and proud about being let the know. And you're absolutely right when you're talking about like the influencer space in general, like we're starting to see this in podcasting to like people automatically think that you're supposed to be this Joe Rogan of podcasts and that's the only value you add if you have like millions of followers. But the difference between their community and ours is that our listeners and our engagement of our community is so much more loyal. Like that's the one, right. Exactly, yeah, exactly, yeah, and like communicating that and making sure that you know, I've been a huge advocate these days for like getting paid market rate or above market rate because of that loyalty factor and ensuring that people are getting paid. Throughout the pandemic, I did hundreds of free panels and recently was approached by a bigger corporation and they want to be to do a speech and I was like are they wanted me to do a panel? I'm like yeah, sure, if you're going to pay us, if they're or if you're going to pay me, and I had a whole fullblown conversation about that prior to and then they told me that they didn't have the money in the budget and I was like, okay, well, if anything ever changes, let me know and I encourage everyone. Honestly, who's listening, y'all, we get paid fifty two cents on the dollar. It's time for us to stop taking less. Then, even if your audience is small. From the from the other side, as a blogger content creator, I remember having a conversation with somebody which I guess at that time was was off the record, and so I don't want to mention the brand or anything like that, but she did tell me that the budget that they had for Latinas and African Americans and Asians were far less than what they had for a Caucasian blogger, and it was just astounding. It was I was like, but why? They're give me the reasoning, and she didn't have one other than their idea, their perception, that the Caucasian blogger had more, more her followers had more buying power, and it's like, what's like, did they do any research on on who follows us, like an our community? Like who's on your panel, like who's on your board making up these decisions? Because, like, do I need to bring you home to my will us to see, like how strong we are as far as, like you know, are buying power and how loyal we are to our products. It's I don't understand. I still don't understand. Is it to this day? But I think you're right. I mean, the more that we have these opportunities to talk with the brands, you know, the more we need to advocate for for other people in our communities and in our line of work that look like us. You know, companies in the future are going to have a hard time hiding from the facts that are coming out. So like recently, Nielsen is like the industry standard that people used for podcasting information and just in general, like their reports on the Latin x community, but specifically rate related to Lettina's. You guys,...

...we are they in our community. We are seventy five percent of the decisionmakers in the households. These are real numbers. We're educating at a faster rate than any other community in the country. We have almost, I think it's almost like twenty five percent above what we did like five years ago on gross income in the household. This is Lettina's alone. It's growing at such a massive rate. We have a one point six trillion dollar buying power. You can't hide from those numbers anymore. And so once we know to educate our community as well on the importance of US no longer selling our voices short or selling it for less than they're going to have to change that percentage on how much they've spent in marketing, because they spend less and gain more from us. So if you're an influencer, or if you're in podcasting or if you're in any company in general and you're listening to this podcast, I urge you to look at these reports in these numbers, because you could be selling yourself very short. So what's next for Rossie Gottasa? Of course, and still be against just to hearing that. Okay, so I am. I'm rebranding. I mean, like I said, so much is changed in the last year and I feel like I'm finally in a place where I I'm just I'm happy with WHO I am and I'm happy with sharing about where I am. So I am. I am rebranding. THESA reesels is going to be no longer and I'm okay with that. I'm at peace with that. Am I going to be letting go a curl content all together? No, but am I going to share every day what I put in my hair? No, but yeah, just rebranding some more of what I want to talk about. So it's going to be focused on lifestyle, curls and Momy Hood. Rociois I in, which is who I am. It's my name, it's you know, it's it's everything that encompasses who, who will see you is, you know. So you are going to see more of life at home, you're going to see more of my journey in Mommy Hood and my journey as a wife. Like I said, there's more to meeting curls. There's always been more to meeting curls. I never wanted to to just sit in that hole of a niche that I created for myself when all this started, and deep down I wanted to share more. I just I didn't know how. So it's been a crazy roller coaster of a journey with how Risa Chrisos has been, you know, from the from the start of just being in English on Youtube and then evolving into having two channels, when an English and one in Spanish, and then trying to keep up with both and then giving little bits of e I listened to one of your podcast episodes on an imposter syndrome, syndrome, because I've gone through that. I feel like I still go through that.
