On November 22, 23 and 24 San Miguel de Allende celebrated the Municipal Youth Day, bringing three speakers who talked about volunteering, low environmental impact housing projects, and the steps and stages that need to be taken to achieve success. The panel of speakers included Cinthya Ayerim Lucio, winner of the National Volunteer and Solidarity Action Award 2016; Cinthia Isabel Flores, winner of the National Prize for Environmental Protection; and Humberto Mauricio Chí Cohuó, winner of the National Youth Award 2013. They came to the stage with one common goal: to encourage young people to continue creating ideals, goals, and projects for the future “because change is beginning to happen in small communities,” according to Cinthia Flores.

This type of event aims to create a bridge between young people and success and prevent procrastination from being an aspect that affects them when they start actions and they can be raise themselves again and go on to something incredible after one or two false starts.

After the conferences, young people from San Miguel showed up at the Angela Peralta Theater and performed some songs, showcasing hidden talent. Josué Tovar, Alexis Martínez, José Eduardo Marmolejo, and the local Citrus Band were in charge of filling the young attendees and parents who were interested in the event with energy. Soon, they were encouraged by hearing Josué’s ballads, the songs of Joan Sebastian played by Alexis, ranchero songs sung by Eduardo Marmolejo, and the rock music of Citrus Band. Each one was given recognition for participation and enthusiastic applause from the audience, hoping to hear them again at another event.

Additionally, 13 young counselors, aged 13-29, from nearby communities and San Miguel neighborhoods came together to support San Miguel youth and society. To close this great event on Friday, November 24, a concert was held by the singer-songwriter from Puebla, Juan Solo, a young man Solo has represented Mexico in the films La Leyenda de la Nahuala and Por Mis Bigotes and has participated with artists, such as Stephany Mary Ruiz and Mon Laferte, in addition to being given the award of Best Performer by the International Song Festival of Viña del Mar.
