Born in Santiago, Dominican Republic and raised in New York City, Geraldine Estevez knows a thing or two about resilience. Her work ethic - as Kara, a character portraying a news producer on the popular TV show "Being Mary Jane" succinctly states - stems from her mother...a woman who deems no task too big or too small, a woman unafraid to take on several responsibilities in order to support her family, a woman who treats every person she encounters with the utmost humility regardless of status.
From the moment she first laid eyes on a book, hands on a microphone (one she'd created using the aluminum foil her lunch sandwiches were wrapped in) and ears on the life-altering effects of powerful storytelling, Geraldine knew she too wanted to be in the business of captivating.
Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, specializing in advertising and public relations, Geraldine took on the role of Social Media Coordinator at Commonground/MGS, where she worked with brands, such as HBO Latino, Absolut and Chivas Regal. In time, Geraldine reeled the courage to pursue her unwavering interests: freelance writing and broadcast journalism. Since then, she has written an array of articles, conducted interviews and produced news scripts and packages in both English and Spanish, therefore becoming a well-rounded multimedia storyteller.
