We had the good fortune of connecting with Mariana Alvarez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mariana, why did you pursue a creative career?
Since I was little I knew that the artistic world was my passion, at the acting level, even as a presenter as a dancer and singer. For many years I worked in TV and when I emigrated I knew that I had to continue growing in other areas of work, open myself to new opportunities but continue doing what I love the most. CREATE

The important thing is never to abandon dreams, never see them far away. Life will put you many obstacles but it is up to you to overcome them and keep moving forward, never lose the north no matter how hard the situation or moment you are going through. I can say that I am very proud of what I have achieved at 27 years old.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
An immigrant girl who arrived with a lot of dreams in her suitcase to the United States, who went through difficult times, but who ALWAYS knew that everything was temporary.

I started working with small brands, some that only gave me an item as a form of payment, other people who crossed my path out of interest, but I was so sure that I was on the right track, success is built on ant work, never doubt me, my talent and wisdom.

I am a new Mariana, more professional, wiser and more eager to take on the world. Always sure of myself and knowing that difficult moments are just that … moments. Everything happens and these situations are part of the great lexions that life gives us to continue growing. This thought is what has led me to be more grateful, to value and appreciate life.

Nowadays I work with big brands recognized worldwide, I never thought I would reach them, I continue creating high quality content, I just created an online store, this has me very excited because I always wanted to be able to use garments in my recordings and photos. clothes and accessories that were from my company.

I am proud to be a happy and emotionally stable person, it is very easy today to get carried away by negative thoughts, insecurity and feeling that you are not achieving anything or you are nobody. But we must NOT be stronger than our thoughts, life goes away in the blink of an eye. I live one day at a time

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love the city where I live, I am based in Orlando Fl.

This city gave my boyfriend and me the opportunity to grow, be happy and achieve many goals. Each of their places are special and we love them!
A beautiful, modern, quiet and very fun city! I feel very identified living here

I would take my best friend to magical places where you go back to childhood and where you feel in a fairy tale. DISNEY, its shops, its parks and tourist places makes you feel part of the history of the magical world, where all dreams come true. I would take her to eat at different restaurants (impossible to mention 1 only
) Foods from different cultures are extraordinary!

and the beautiful Florida beaches that are just a few hours away.

Without a doubt God has been my guide to keep me firm. Without forgetting the great support of my parents, who from a very young age led me to the best path. And much less leave behind the support of my partner, always reminding me of who I am and where I should continue to reach. I thank myself too, because I have never lost that magic called * dreams * meditation, music, exercises have been a fundamental part of my happiness, positive energies and tranquility.
