We had the good fortune of connecting with The Talk With Q and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi The Talk With Q, what are you inspired by?
To be honest, instead of looking for role models, I try to become one. I would love to be an inspiration for people around me, for people pursing in the entertainment industry as well. How do I want to do it? I want to try my best on my show each episode, be attentive to the needs of my guest, master each skill needed to produce my show, interact with my followers consistently, being conscious of my topics and/or opinions on them but still honest, post quality content ,bring positive energy at all times and most importantly be my authentic self on every platform I’m on. I constantly work on my skills and knowledge on the media industry learning new things and programs will take you far. I am sure that if my followers pursuing similar passions see such an example, it will be inspiring for them. I aspire to be my true genuine, entertaining ,loving and generic self. I prefer cooperation to competition, I want to follow healthy and balanced lifestyle, and bring some value to the lives of people that are inspired by me. I am blessed to have come so far so I aspire to improve constantly.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Recently I finally started a Cooking Page where I give recipes, cooking tips and videos on different meals. Cooking is a hobby of mine that I enjoy to the fullest because it is o soothing to me. I love that cooking give me a chance to be creative and indulge in some ‘play’ time – something we adults could do with a lot more. I adore losing myself in the rituals of chopping, stirring and tasting. As much as I’d like to think that all these lofty benefits were what first got me into cooking, really, it was the praise. Hearing the words ‘this is amazing’ was a huge motivator for me to keep spending time in the kitchen when I was learning to cook. Spending 30 minutes in the kitchen preparing dinner will put me in a much calmer, less frazzled mood than sitting on the couch for the same amount of time. Plus it gives me an opportunity to nurture my family and friends. To express my love and take care of them.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Hey depending on the friend and where they are coming from I will take them to the best Ocean view restaurants, Hotels and Boat Shows. I am a major foodie and love to indulge myself in a nice meal so definitely I will take them to get a nice dinner on Los Olas form one of my top pick’s on the strip. Definitely I will make sure we visit Wynwood, Over town and Little Havana to expose them the different arts, cultures, area development happening right now in Miami. Located to the immediate west of downtown Miami, Little Havana is the symbolic and cultural capital for Cuban-Americans in Miami. The neighborhood brings in droves of visitors with its vibrant atmosphere and excellent food. Wynwood is such an open-air street art installation –one of the largest in the world is one of the reasons formerly it was apart of Overtown before it found new life as the art hub of Miami. I will be sure we visit the Everglades which is about 30 miles west of downtown Miami and a world away from flashy South Beach, the Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wetland in the U.S. Known as the “River of Grass” for its slow-moving water, the national park offers a unique look into the diverse ecosystem and vegetation that filters water as it moves farther south toward the Florida Bay and Key West.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Hey I would like to shout out my Mother Conswella Quinones for never missing a show, performance, dance recital, game and Podcast event I have ever participated in. My mother supports my dreams no matter how big or small they are and I value her so much for that. I genuinely appreciate all that she does for me constantly. Last I would like to shout out my supporters who tune in each and every episode, interact with me consistently and Subscribe to my YouTube Channel. I was very doubtful of the success of my show in the beginning but watching the constant support on my show increase has motivated me to keep growing.
