1. She's a natural born star.

Some may just be hearing about the Miami-born singer and dancer, but she's been a superstar in training for years. In May 2016 Amara told Latina, "I had acting classes, and I had singing classes. I also had modeling classes. I was doing it all. My childhood pretty much revolved around my future. In fact, I don’t know how to ride a bike or how to swim or even roller skate. I don’t know how to do anything that a normal kid did for fun while growing up." It all makes sense as young Amara poses with the iconic Cuban Afro-Latina singer, Celia Cruz above. La Reina de Salsa would even cheer Amara on when she would see her performing.

The natural hair movement isn't exactly loud and proud in the music industry. Recently, we've seen more artist like the Se Que Soy singer embrace their natural roots with style and grace.

The Love & Hip Hop Miami's breakout star acknowledges her African roots and inspires her fans to do so too. "I’m black. Yes, I’m going to have nappy and kinky hair. But that’s part of what makes me beautiful. And it took me years to know and realize that. I’m straightening and burning my hair for what? To please who? I was doing it to try and fit into society." Here's to not fitting into society and lovin' your natural hair! 

4. She's Inspiring AF!

The proud Dominican is always empowering her fans and followers through her lyrics and platforms. Recently La Negra wrote, "I am more than just a pretty face. My true beauty comes from within me! For those that don’t believe that dreams can come true. Join me in my journey and watch me prove them wrong! You can do anything you put you mind too.. Never let anyone bring you down or tell you that you can’t!" Make no mistake this Afro-Latina is here to stay!
