The heart of our mission at VoyageMIA is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks, we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Miami’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out Boca Raton rising stars below.

We are sisters, so our story truly began as children. Our grandfather owned a luxury womenswear boutique and our grandmother was his muse. We grew up in an environment appreciating fashion and the powerful nonverbal voice it gives its wearer. We both did our Master’s in Fashion at the London College of Fashion and went on to work in London for designers including couturier Roland Mouret, stylist Rebekah Roy and showroom BLM. Read more>>

My scholarship was taken away and I was forced to work two jobs and take out a loan to finish school. They could take all my money, and my education but not my love for soccer. I was depressed for a time and lost a lot of friends but I was able to pick myself up and try again. A few months later, I was offered a scholarship to pursue my Master’s Degree at Lynn University, where I studied Entrepreneurial Management. Read more>>

I’ve been producing music. I started at the age of 14, messing around with this software called fruity loops (fl studio) after coming across an ad that I saw while sitting at the library. What got me into music production was the type of music I was listening to at the time, like right before I started making music. I used to use my SoundCloud for gathering new music I found and put them into playlists that would start to gain attention over time. Read more>>

I just want to start off by saying how super honored I am to be featured in Voyage Magazine. We started off decorating and by we I mean me, my cousin Rina and my friend Ginie. Our very first event was a “Peaches and Cream” surprise birthday dinner! So I thought well why don’t I bake some peaches and cream cupcakes to go with the theme! Mind you. I’ve never baked anything from scratch… I thought, how hard could it be? Well, it wasn’t easy! After trial and error, I found the perfect recipe. Read more>>

When I was in 5th grade, I fell in love with soccer and hip-hop, and when that happened, it introduced me to the cultures behind them. It was so interesting being exposed to music, fashion, and art from these two worlds. One of the things that caught my attention the most was the way people dressed. On one side, I was seeing this slim-fit clean-cut look and on the other, it was a more baggy street look. Read more>>

I’ve always loved taking pictures with my sister Camille. She used me as her “test model,” so she could get more familiar with her camera. It gave me another avenue in creativity. The second shoot that I’ve done with another photographer was with Kervins Martin in Spring 2019. After him, I was excited to shoot with others, but soon after that shoot, I met my pageant coach at my first fashion show. Read more>>

Food has always been a big part of my life. Coming from a family of Portuguese home cooks, some of my fondest memories include food and how it brought us all closer together. You could taste the love in every bite you took. I grew up a ballerina and attended art schools my whole life. Once I stopped dancing, I no longer had a creative outlet and I needed to find a new passion. Once I had a 9-5, I found myself using the kitchen as a way to de-stress. Read more>>
