Stacey Udine | Executive Director of Parkland Cares

I can think of no greater inspiration than my husband, Michael, and our three children—David (23), Matt (22), and Lexi (20). As Broward’s Vice Mayor, my husband embodies what it means to be a true public servant, taking on everything that comes his way with positivity, integrity, and compassion. Public service is nothing new to our household, as my husband has spent the last 18 years advocating for Northwest Broward County—first as a Parkland City Commissioner, then Mayor, followed by his 2016 election to the County Commission. In fact, those qualities that make him a great community leader are reflected every day in his dedication to what’s most important: family. Despite his own hectic calendar, he knows the kids’ schedules and makes it a point to talk to them every single day. Read more>>

Yasmine Quinones | The Talk With Q Show Host

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. Read more>>
