“THE KEY TO SUCCESS LIES IN JUST BEING YOURSELF, IN BEING AUTHENTIC”

Sobre mi

About me

I am a Cuban actress and television hostess. I was born in Havana in the 90s. I have been interested in acting since I was a child. After graduating from the National School of Arts of Cuba (ENA) at the age of 17, I performed my first professional job in the television series “Aquí Estamos”. Ever since, I have been working as an actress in Radio, Movie Films, television shows and in theater with directors like Carlos Díaz, Alexis Valdés and Neher Jacqueline Brisceño. In the motion picture industry, I worked in films like “Sergio & Serguéi” and “El Acompañante” among others. With the roll of Lisandra, from “El Acompañante”, I won the Latin ACE Awards in New York as the best supporting roll. I also received awards in Hollywood North Films Awards, MLC Awards, Rome International Movie Awards. During 2017 and 2018, I was the host of the popular Cuban reality show Bailando en Cuba.
I moved to the United States in 2019. I was graduated from Adriana Barraza Acting Studio in Miami in 2020 where I also had the opportunity to be part of ArtTalks Theater Lab.

In 2021, I starred in my first English-language role in the short film “Un pequeño Corte,” where I also served as an associate producer. This work won the Best Short Film of the Year award at the Miami Film Gate Interactive. Then, in 2023, I joined the cast of the Telemundo soap opera “Juego de Mentiras.”

I started my own podcast, “Estamos Juntas,” in 2021, with the purpose of sharing tools and life experiences to help Spanish-speaking women in their personal, emotional, and professional growth. In 2022, I launched an ONG with the same name, aiming to provide self-awareness, personal, and professional development through alternative therapies with Spanish-speaking coaches and therapists to vulnerable individuals in Latin America who cannot afford such treatments.

Currently, I am part of the main cast of the series “Coolie” (in post-production), the first to emerge from Cathay Film Company, with industry veteran Meileen Choo as the showrunner. Directed by Arvin Chen and Julian Acosta, I share the set with actors like Louise Wong, Mauricio Henao, and Mario Cimarro.
