Are you a mom whose family customs, traditions, background, etc. are not yet well-represented in other local media?
Are you a mom who loves writing, is building her portfolio, or just needs a creative outlet? Do you have a perspective on life and parenting that’s worth sharing? (Spoiler alert . . . you do.)
Do you have tips, tricks, DIY projects, recipes, or other practical things to share?
Do you love the El Paso area and know all the ins and outs of this place to help create amazing community resources for our audience?
Are you interested in interviewing local women and sharing their stories?
Are you a wiz on social media and love making TikToks and Reels?
If any of these are true for you, we just might need your voice on El Paso Mom!
