Maria Cecilia

Maria Cecilia grew up in Little Havana, Miami watching her mother work two jobs to make ends meet. Putting ointment on her mother’s hands because they were cut from working in the factoria.It wasn’t easy for her family and for so many others trying to succeed here. So many people asking the same questions and looking for the same answers. So many unnecessary struggles.

Years later, she is still seeing the same stories and struggles. The unreliable information, the well-meaning friends trying to help out and all the wasted time.

And growing up while navigating two cultures taught MC that loving where you live doesn’t mean forgetting where you’re from. And that success for her as a Hispanic American had to be on her own terms – holding on to her roots.
And there in a nutshell is why ER was born.

MC strongly believes two things

That we as Hispanics and Latinos can achieve tremendous success here with the right tools – accurate information and resources.
And to be truly successful, we must achieve success on our own terms – holding on to our roots, celebrating our culture and passing on the beauty of our heritage.
