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 Hialeah’s rising stars below.

Way before Nina’s Bath & Beauty, I personally suffered from acne. I experienced everything from blackheads to cystic acne. After using various prescribed skin care products and over the counter treatments, I realized I was damaging my skin more than I was healing it, that’s when I started doing my research. Read more>>

I’m Cuban-American born in Miami, FL and grew up in Hialeah, Fl. I’m a self-taught tattoo artist. Ive always loved drawing and art, in general. I got my first tattoo at the age of 15 and tattooed a few of my friends around that time but never had much interest in becoming a tattoo artist until 2001. Read more>>

I’m a first generation American with Cuban parents. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and am happily married and raising a family here. Growing up in Miami, I remember my peaceful childhood growing up on a five-acre farm in the Redlands, and my grandmother drove me to Westminster Christian School every day. There were fewer people and less traffic back in the ’90s, and South Florida was a balmy, tropical paradise. Read more>>

I studied media arts and gravitated to film production and film history studies. I flirted with production and was a camera assistant..on commercial, indie features, documentaries for a time. During those years, I interned doing preservation on a moving image collection at a regional archive. I found that handling film was of great interest to me and came to realize that I prefer to work alone. That was the genesis of art practice. Read more>>

My journey with entrepreneurship began when I started a Candy House at eight yrs old. I began making $500/day before I traded business for fun/school activities. I became a teen parent at 14 and had many younger girls looking up to me so at 19 I decided to start a non-profit mentoring (501c(3)) program teaching them the direction o should’ve chosen. Read more>>

I have dabbled in a LOT. So much, performance taking the cake (from years 15-25 I’ve been academically learning the craft of musical, physical, and dramatic theater) fashion, music, watercolor painting… These are all things I’ve picked up throughout the last three years. Spending time in my room by myself showed me all the things I like, and I feel lucky to have always been surrounded by connections that have helped me monetize hobbies I’ve picked up. Read more>>

Mario Ramil

This journey began out of necessity. Being a stand-up comedian and social media influencer in Miami, I felt like there wasn’t really a community where local creatives could come together under one roof, bounce ideas, collaborate, and create. Advice people give you when you want to break into the entertainment industry is to move to Hollywood or New York, and I refused to accept that. Read more>>

Today, I am a sophomore in college in New York City, and I could not be more grateful for where I am and everyone I have worked with thus far. Although my major is not photography, I ultimately still want to do something within the field in the future. Even though everyone says this, photography IS a huge creative outlet for me, and I know I will never stop taking photos and chasing my dreams. Read more>>

I am a burn survivor. I recently wrote and published a book title I’m not my scars. Back in 2006, I was in an accident where I was burned on 40% of my body. During that time, I was in a coma for almost two months. Waking up from it was the hard part I had to deal with scars that I never had before, as well as losing memory of my body functioning. Read more>>

I always say it all began with my first beauty pageant. I competed for four years, and with every pageant I did, I learned more about myself and fashion. Truthfully, ever since I was a little girl, I always had so much fun dressing up and stealing my mom’s high heels. Read more>>
