SANTA CLARA, CA — After years of reporting throughout the West Coast, Fil-Am Azenith Smith is home in the South Bay reporting for KTVU Fox News.
Smith actually got her start with Balitang America.
Now, she is helping Maerisa Lazo jump-start her career by being her mentor.
“You have to give back. You have to give to your community and you have to remember your roots because if you don’t then it’s meaningless.”
“I feel really blessed to surround myself with so many people that are going through the same thing like I get to hear all their opinions or thoughts and advice. I feel like I’m overwhelmed with so much knowledge and empowerment.”
Smith and Lazo are participating in the third annual Fly Pinay summit put on by LEAD Filipino.
The leadership summit originated for those in the immediate Bay Area — but this year, the conference has grown to attract more participants.
