Throughout the transitions, life was both an adventure and an obstacle. A few years after moving to the keys I found myself divorced and a single mom trying to make everything work for my children.

Stephanie Guerra

Originally from NJ where her fascination with hip-hop, pop, reggae, and dancehall music grew, Stephy La Guerra was also known as Mzs. Stiletto first began her career in the music industry as a dancer/choreographer for her dance team Taste Ladies. After years of working with artists, she decided that it was time for her to step out at the apex of the cameras and take the spotlight. Having first attempted a shot as a hip-hop artist, she felt that she needed some sort of a transition that was more relatable to her style. With a Cuban background, Stephy grew up hearing the sounds of Latin artists in the likes of Celia Cruz, Aventura, musica Urbana by artists like Daddy Yankee, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, El General and her own personal favorite, Ivy Queen, who aside from her other faves; Jlo and Lil Kim, she hopes to grace the same stage with one day. Read more>>
