My desire and passion to open MISfitted.Co comes from my 12+ year career in the Gift Industry. I got really fed up of seeing my cultura being misrepresented and combined with my love of Stationery I found my passion. I’ve been writing letters since I was a kid.

With my businesses I hope to inspire and empower other young Latina/o/x/e to continue to break down barriers and create the representation we want to see, no matter the field or industry.

Dali Rivera - Dali Talks
Dali Rivera - Dali Talks

Founder: Dali Rivera

When my husband and I found ourselves having to advocate for our (then) five-year-old who was being bullied, we ran into many roadblocks.

I began to research and educate myself about bullying and discovered that having certain information is vital to preventing and putting a stop to it. I began sharing all of the knowledge I acquired with others.

Years later, I created Diversity and Anti Bullying Academy (DABA) to help parents (and educators) learn how and what to teach kids about bullying prevention, awareness, advocacy, and the importance of embracing people’s differences and much more.

Bonus: the checklist features lines as downloading podcast, audibles, or playlist while bringing headphones – the necessities for a multi-day backpacking trip that you will not find elsewhere! ha.

Heather Diaz of Lets Go Outside Yall

Founder: Heather Diaz

Hi, I’m Heather!
Born and raised in Houston, experienced long-distance runner of 20+ years, pan dulce addict, and outdoor recreation enthusiast.

When my work hours decreased due to the pandemic, I was inspired to focus on helping even the most novice women outdoor enthusiasts feel included and empowered.

Why? Because I know what it’s like to see other people growing and chasing their adventure dreams but do not know how to exactly begin or who to ask for help.

Planning a backpacking trip can be daunting, intimidating, and may seem a bit ridiculous. It might take a lot, like a lot of planning.

My dedication to cutting through the fluff and getting straight to the point will be the main driver of your success.

Party Girl Pinatas Amorette Crespo

Founder: Amorette Crespo

I started making piñatas at home in 2017 for my daughter’s 10th birthday. It was Selena theme and while we didn’t want to smash a piñata or Selena, we wanted a microphone piñata. We went to the piñata district in DTLA to order a custom one but it was out of our budget so I decided to make one instead. I realized this could easily become a side-hustle so I started making custom piñatas for my friends. Four years later, my piñatas are now part of the first exhibition in LA about piñatas and I’ve sold my first fine art piece.

Party Girl Piñatas

We all have that one friend or family member who loves to throw a good party.  They always get all the details right. Imagine how thrilled they would be to receive a Selena Piñata for their next fiesta?
