In the Media
Striving for the biggest impact possible, Esmeralda began working with Tele-mundo and E House Media to create a show detailing real-life experiences. It centers around adults who have dealt with abuse, trauma, depression and life-threatening situations. Esmeralda uses this platform to demonstrate that no matter what you are going through, there is always a path to get to where you want to be. The first episodes will be available in early 2024.
She has also become a social media influencer, spreading her positive mindset and lifestyle tips. Recently at the Latin Billboard Awards, she was able to interview many notable Hispanic actors in the entertainment industry. One of her most recent talking points has been about eating disorders.
Her book, So You Think The Precious You Starts In The Mirror, advises preteens and young adults on how to alleviate some of the societal pressure and understand their bodies. Esmeralda realizes that young women are bombarded with unrealistic expectations on social media; she strives to show them that they have much more to offer than looks.
As a former professional dancer, Esmeralda underwent rigorous training, dieting and exercise. “I have personal experience at an elite level, and I want to share my expertise with anyone who wants to simply feel better about themselves or perform at a high level,” she says.
Recognizing the power of storytelling in shaping young minds, Esmeralda donned yet another creative hat as the author of a children’s book, So You Think You Can Laugh. Her engaging narratives—often inspired by her own life experiences—instill essential values and inspire young readers to dream big and embrace their unique potential.
Her commitment to fostering a love for literature and education among children has earned her accolades as a devoted advocate for young readers. “I strive to create positive, strong characters so young people feel empowered and inspired,” she points out.
The journey from an immigrant with modest beginnings to a multifaceted and influential entrepreneur has made Esmeralda a symbol of empowerment and hope. Her story proves that greatness knows no bounds. As she continues to break barriers and inspire others to reach for the stars, her legacy serves as a reminder that dreams can be realized with passion, hard work and a relentless belief in oneself.
