After fleeing Cuba as a child, I spent three years in a boarding school where no one spoke Spanish. Traumatized, I developed a stammer and forgot much of my Spanish. Speaking English without stuttering became key to my survival in the U.S. Years later, as a junior publicist, I was petrified when a TV crew interviewed me in Spanish. Determined to be fully bilingual, I got a voice coach, took immersive Spanish classes in Latin America. I became Hispanic campaign spokesperson for major corporations. Now, I want to combine my communications and on-camera savvy to help broaden your impact as a speaker.
