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 Kendall that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Dance will always be my first love. I’ve been dancing since I was little. My dad would always play music in the house – merengue, hip hop, oldies, anything – and it was one of the ways we connected. We both love music and breaking it down on the dance floor, be it the middle of the kitchen or in the car.. Read more>>

My passion for writing began one day in 7th grade when my teacher asked the class to individually create a scenario or a short story on a crime being committed locally and then solved by law enforcement. I remember that day vividly, where I was sitting in the classroom, the subject of the class, and even the name of the teacher. Read more>>
My family and I have always been passionate about the ocean. We regularly go out on the boat, head to the beach, and love traveling to different islands in the Caribbean.
