EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Daisy Fuentes on Being a Role Model

It's hard to believe, but gorgeous Cuban beauty Daisy Fuentes has been in the game for over 20 years! She started her career as a model back in the 1980s and then proceeded to break down barriers for a whole new generation as the first ever Latina VJ on MTV. Since then, Fuentes has been building her brand with a fantastic fashion line for Kohl's, a beauty line and a set of exercise DVD's which turned into a super popular Nintendo Wii game. It is estimated that Fuentes sells about $300 million worth of clothing, accessories, and beauty products through Kohl’s every year! Here's what she had to say about how the game has changed since she started and how she feels about being a role model for thousands of Latinas trying to follow in her footsteps.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
