As Seen On...

Janeli Saucedo-Castrejana, is a 30-year mother, wife, and advocate living in San Antonio, Texas. Her blog, “The Esposa Experience” Chronicles her attempt at being the quintessential Esposa her family and cultura tells her she needs to be. In 2017, she came out as HIV positive and has continued on her path of advocating to end the stigma against HIV/AIDS and those living with the virus. She recently launched the “Positive Vida Podcast” with her husband Jake. They intend to use the podcast as a tool to help those living with HIV and those who love them

She’s also an advocate for autism awareness, chronicling her son’s diagnosis and daily life with autism, as well as her battles with depression and anxiety on her social media platforms

When she’s not working as a Communications Specialist or advocating,she’s burning sage, blasting 90’s hip hop and R&B, aligning her chakras, and trying to connect more deeply to her spiritual self. She promised Denise on the Eñye retreat she would get more creative in 2019, and is still working on that.

This week I have the pleasure of introducing a true fighter and all around badass to you all. Her name is Janeli Saucedo-Castrejana and she is a mother of three, a wife to her college sweetheart, and an advocate in the Greater San Antonio area.

Janeli is a force to be reckoned with, she has a successful blog and podcast, is a successful communications specialist and is an advocate for HIV/AIDS and autism awareness. During the interview, we talk about Janeli’s story, her truth, and how she is living as an HIV positive woman and mother.

Here is a sneak peak of what we talk

about in this episode:

⦁ Janeli jumps into her secret that she was hiding from the world. She is HIV positive. She speaks about coming to terms with it and speaking her truth to the world.

⦁ She candidly talks about her depression and anxiety and how her children were robbed of precious time and memories.

⦁ We get deep on the retreat and break some uncomfortable barriers about our culture and tired conversations. Janeli opens our eyes to a new way of seeing it. She explains that we [Latinas and Latinos] as a culture, are going through the stages of grief collectively and separately.

You do not want to miss this episode. It is raw and Janeli gets real on many different levels. Do yourself a favor and listen now.
