My friends say I should be working for the FBI because I help my friends and family find out stuff they can’t (Cheaters, their kids, parties, scams). I found all my exes cheating because I love to research. So I did the FBI Citizens academy this year, now I’m official!
Andrea is my only daughter, I’ve been a single mom since she was 4. She’s my inspiration and motivation in life. She’s very creative and has amazing grades. She is currently recording her first EP.
I’m a multicultural contributor for WISH-TV, Image consultant, and PR, and I do day trading stocks and crypto.
The moment in your life you felt most empowered:
NOW! When I talk to other women to empower them through Taco Tuesday or my IG or my Telemundo show
Women should empower women, we have different gifts and talents, we should give opportunities and words of wisdom. If we unite all together and we leave drama or competition out, we can really change our kids’ futures, friends, neighborhoods, cities, and countries.
Communications in Spanish. I’m so happy I can communicate with the Hispanic community and share resources, talk about life, and our needs. I think that makes a unique connection.
