Summary "From the cohost of Univision's Despierta America (the Spanish Good Morning America) and the 2015 winner of the most watched beauty pageant in the United States comes an inspiring and fascinating memoir about achieving the American dream. Francisca Lachapel is not your traditional beauty queen. Rising from humble beginnings in the Dominican Republic, she struggled to make ends meet as a newly arrived immigrant in New York City. When she heard about the auditions for the Nuestra Belleza Latina pageant, she had no idea that her life was about to change forever. Quickly winning the audience over with her humor and down-to-earth charm, she earned the title of Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 and was named one of People en Espanol's 50 Most Beautiful People. Francisca subsequently became one of the cohosts of the #1 morning show in the United States, Despierta America. In 2016, Francisca was finally able to continue pursuing her dream of acting when she became one of the recent additions to the cast of Despertar Contigo, one of Univision's most popular telenovelas. In this memoir, Francisca candidly shares her experience growing up in the Dominican Republic, the difficult and painful decision to leave home and pursue her dreams, and what led her to becoming one of the most beloved Latina celebrities on Univision today, offering inspiration to all who long to follow their dreams"-- Provided by publisher.
