I'm a Costa Rican-American singer, songwriter and artist and I need every possible role model in how to create art and tell stories on my own terms and by my own rules. Being Latin American, American, a woman, and an entrepreneur creative all at the same time can feel like lifting up a giant rock on my shoulders by myself every single morning, and listening to these incredible women on my run lifted that rock up and gave me fire for another day.
