Listeners, we're back this week with Luisa Diaz.
Luisa is an actress, who has been featured in Oscar-winning movies such as The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. She is the former Ms. Venezuela International and is known in North Carolina as “Luisa Su Voz Latina” (Luisa your Latin voice), where Luisa was the host and producer of the first and longest-running Spanish language TV program produced in a major network. It ran for three years in North Carolina with interviews of celebrities in the Latin community such as Jorge Ramos, Cristina Saralegui, and Oprah Winfrey, among others. Through her success with her show, she became a personality and a brand name.
Luisa produces and hosts her third entertainment talk show called, “Luisa,” which incorporates a live band and a studio audience. Luisa also created a foundation to help unprivileged children called “Luisa Su Voz Latina Foundation,” with toy drives for Christmas and food drives for Thanksgiving. Luisa was also the director of the Miss North Carolina Latina beauty pageant.
Her comprehensive organization was dedicated to assisting young Latin women to grow and develop the confidence they need to achieve their personal dreams. Luisa came to the United States not knowing the English language, but this did not stop her from attending college and graduating with a B.S. in Business Administration along with a concentration in Marketing. This was the greatest challenge she had ever faced. Then she moved to Hollywood to explore the world of entertainment.
Being very talented and creative, she is a natural both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Luisa chose to create awareness for domestic violence with Mi Amor Gala in honor of her beloved grandmother who was mentally and physically abused. She was inspired to found and produce Mi Amor Gala, which is a celebration of kindness: angels that empower other angels with broken wings through the gift of love. These glamorously themed events benefit various charities that empower women and bring them hope.
Two of the main charities Luisa collaborates with are the Maria Suarez Foundation, which exists to end modern slavery, and Safe Passage, which brings compassionate transformation to victims of domestic violence. Now, she debuts as the author of Sexy Is Timeless: Ten Timeless Sexy Assets That Lie within You to share her inspiring insights. In this new, empowering guide, Luisa Diaz shows how to survive in this transformative time from a male-dominated society to a female-dominated society while still retaining femininity.
Through her simple advice, Diaz outlines ten different characteristics of sexiness that make women feel validated and more assertive. Interestingly, none of these aspects specifically address body type or images of traditional beauty. Instead, Diaz shares fun and relatable personal examples of what she has worked to improve her own life and the lives of others. Her insight and support help bring understanding to the reader’s unique attributes and own self-worth. She also is Mrs. New York International 2019.
