Lola Montilla POV HIpLatina


Lola Montilla

Meet Lola!

I’m 17 years-old. I am a CHD activist, OHS survivor and all-around warrior. I am public speaker, and social media junkie. I am a daughter, a sister and an awesome friend. I am an eternal optimist who lives by the motto, “everything happens for a reason.”

I think life is a gift and a blessing.  I don’t know if I have the answers or the right way to live life, face challenges or move on, but I do what feels right.  And when your actions follow your heart, there’s really no room for mistakes.  Let your heart lead the way, always. ~Lola
