From the Girl from Brooklyn to the Woman working on the upcoming Broadway Musical On Your Feet, about the inspiring lives of Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Maria Torres has always been determined thanks to the unwavering support of her mom, who to put it simply was—FIERCE. HourGlass is proud to share an inspiring, intimate moment in Maria Torres' life that is an example of the kind of stories our podcast will be sharing.
"My mother, Gladys Torres, taught me while young to love instead of to hate, to rise above adversity by not being a victim, but by rather being an achiever. I promised her that when I reached my mountaintop that I would share my teachings with the next generation. Time to talk!" - Maria Torres
