Karina Cabreja is, like myself a Native New Yorker of Afro Latina decent. She is EXTREMELY Dominican and EXTREMELY New York. She is also a mother, a music industry vet and a radio host.
She recently uprooted her life to pursue her dream of being on the radio and you will never guess where her journey has taken her and her adorable daughter, Quinn. Her story is inspiring and a major kick in the ass for anyone who has ever felt stuck. In this episode we discuss everything from motherhood to moving to race relations in the midwest.
