Gloria Estefan- Day 13- 31daysofWomen

“You’ve got to believe. Never be afraid to dream.” ~Gloria Estefan, Cuban American singer-songwriter, actress, and entrepreneur.

Who doesn’t remember the famous “Conga” song from the Miami Sound Machine and Gloria Estefan as lead singer? I do. That was definitely “the song” while I was growing up.

Gloria Estefan was born in Havana, Cuba and later moved to Miami as a result of the Cuban Revolution.

She is the most successful crossover Latin artist to date and one of the world’s best-selling artist of all time; she has won seven Grammy awards and has an estimated 100 million records sold.

One thing I admire about Gloria Estefan is her tenacity while suffering a terrible injury after a car accident that almost left her paralyzed. Within ten months after a very complicated surgery she was walking and touring the world.

Also, I love how she is constantly founding outlets for her other creative talents, besides her musical talent she is also a children’s book author and also the co-author of a cooking book with her husband Emilio Estefan.

She is also a very successful Latina entrepreneur, with her husband, she owns several Cuban-themed restaurants, two hotels and even has a minor ownership of the NFL team Miami Dolphins.

She is definitely an example for all Latinos and women in general that by persevering and working hard you can achieve your dreams and succeed.
