Iris Lopez knows firsthand how tough it can be as a woman in the TV news industry. And as a single mom, she wants to push people to strive for their dreams.
The TV meteorologist from El Paso, Texas, started the 'Mija, yes you can' movement — inspired by what her own mother would remind her as a child.
'I had these wild dreams, ambitions,' explains Lopez. 'And my mom and dad were always there to say, 'Yes you can. Mija, yes, you can.''
Lopez's group aims to use its platform to empower other women to succeed, while donating proceeds from their shirts to nonprofits in need.
