South Broward’s Rising Stars

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 South Florida’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 inspiring stories from South Broward below.

Daythel (Dee Dee) Williams

Born and raised in Jacksonville, FL I have always had a love for cooking. My Mom and Grandmother were the influence that brought me to where I am today. The conversations and laughter as well as tears made me always thankful for the family that I was raised with. Asking questions and being nosy in the kitchen doorway was the best ever. Training began early on with just the simple task of setting the table. A lesson I will forever keep in my heart. Read more>>

Ronald Garces

My story started as a former professional soccer player (Goalkeeper) and Venezuelan international in categories u17, u20 and Senior team with 15 years of career including a World Cup in Egypt 2009. The position of a GK in soccer, is very well known by dealing with so much mental adversity and having extreme discipline. They are judged, questioned and bullied in majority of their playing careers that forced you to develop a bulletproof mindset that makes you a winner at all times. Read more>>

Ellen Jaffe

I never planned on a career in Broadcasting. It chose me – kind of like when you go to the Humane Society with one idea in mind of what you want to adopt, and a completely different pet catches your attention and your heart. I always loved music and was an avid radio listener, but had no interest in being ON the radio. I was involved in Theater from Elementary School through my second year of college at the University of Miami. At that point, reality kicked in and I realized I didn’t have the tough skin you need if you want to succeed in Theater, and it was probably not the right fit for me. I transferred to the University of South Florida, changed my major to Business, and took one Communications Class. That was when everything clicked. We had an assignment to ‘interview’ a classmate, and that was the wake-up call. I felt like Barbara Walters, and I loved it. Read more>>

Precious Smith

It’s never easy to pick a place to explain my story because there are so many moments that have played a great deal in who I am today. Born and raised here in sunny South Florida by two amazing parents that understood co-parenting. My amazing hardworking mother raised me to understand what it means to be A Strong Woman in every aspect of those words. My awesome, hardworking father is one that taught me not to make excuses and get it done, even as a jokester. With that being said let’s start here, I was a teenage mother that graduated high school and even college. Statistically, the odds were against me, but I’ve learned that it’s these things that activate the beast in me. My heart is pure and my love for helping people lead me into healthcare. Read more>>
