Latinas are always on the move, so why not make our lives easier with a newscast that tells us everything we need to know NOW? This is Sharon Gallardo's idea.

One of five winners in the #VivalaSpotlight contest and a woman of many trades, Gallardo came up with the idea of hosting a weekly roundup of story highlights from Vivala every week.
