The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more. With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.
Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Hialeah that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Working with entrepreneurs that are driven to leave a positive impact and do what they can to help make the world a better place, started inspiring and bringing out the best in me. Being able to hear what they had to say, take those words and help them visually translate the authenticity of their personality is especially rewarding. Read more>>
I didn’t want to just cook food, I wanted to cook foods that were beneficial to each person’s health concerns and goals.

My journey starts in 2015. I was a young and bright-eyed 23 years old with two years of elementary school teaching under my belt. I was at a crossroads.
