In addition, Gloria Estefan, Dr. Eneida Roldan, Miami Ballet director Lourdes Lopez, writer Uva de Aragon, advertising icon Daisy Exposito-Ulla, documentary producer and director Adriana Bosch and many other distinguished women are featured book. The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald reporter Sarah Moreno wrote articles about the launch event and the book, and the articles were published in English and Spanish on the front page of these newspapers.
