Trailblazers: Hialeah

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.

I’m grateful to the friendships I have created in this platform. I have received so much encouragement and so much positive feedback and the greatest supporter has been my husband who I would constantly bore with my obsession of beauty, poor thing. I am grateful and honored to be in this space and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and my little page. Read more>>

I am just now beginning to start up my own business by providing virtual therapy, and the long-term goal is to go into private practice. My advice for other women is – GO FOR IT! Don’t let fear stand in the way. We tend to create scenarios and issues out of things that have not occurred yet. So, keep at it, be persistent, and remember why you started. Read more>>

My background is basically the same story of immigrant parents who were forced to leave their country because of war and struggled to create the life of luxury they wanted for their kids. I had a pretty great childhood, but teenage angst made me a shitty teenager to my mom. That’s when I knew I wanted to leave, but I didn’t realize how much I would miss it. Growing up and even now. Read more>>

I came to Miami supporting my family on a business project. Later on, there was in front of me an opportunity to keep creating spaces that could somehow add value on the fields that I was always involved and passionate, so I started to work with those skills that came with me, my passion, knowledge, and of course, I still had to keep learning so much, I’m also a big fan of keep learning, and self improvement. Read more>>

When it comes to the realm of art and music, my passion is deep-rooted.

Our team is pretty strong and without my team, we wouldn’t have the marketing tactics we do, we use our platforms with intention and that’s how we are able to build a strong and returning customer other than building trust-worthy relationships. Read more>>

Keep in mind, I was 20 years old and no idea that dryers have a thing called a lint compartment that you had to clean… much less anything about life at all. I grew up a lot and gained a lot of life experiences that have made me who I am today. Read more>>

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.

I had no idea how to run a meal-prep business, but I did know how to push through the sleepless nights, how to stay positive through every trial & error, & how to trust that God would bring me all that I needed to make this company grow—including my parents, siblings, the amazing employees that work for Glow Meals, & our deeply appreciated clients—without them this company would be nothing. Read more>>
