Latin Inspiration Celines Toribio

My Latina Inspiration of the Week!

Celines, is the true inspiring Latina, with-in the years she has accomplished her goals, and today I admire her and look up to her.

Celines, our Dominican Proud and Joy. Toribio began her television career in 1995 as host of the variety and entertainment program Sabado Al Mediodia , alongside Puerto Rican entertainer Jimmy Nieves, and was also a featured as an entertainment reporter on WXTV's local newscast as the host of Galeria, a daily live gossip and entertainment segment, and Mi Gente, a weekly segment that profiled and interviewed famous Latino personalities. During Celines's tenure at WXTV, she made several appearances at local Latino events such as the Puerto Rican Day Parade and the Dominican Day Parade.

In 1997, Toribio received national exposure on Univison, the nation's dominant Spanish-language television network, as the on-air host for the network's coverage of Miami's Calle Ocho street festival, Little Havana. Later, she became a reporter for Univision's weekly prime time Fuera De Serie (Something Outrageous), and an entertainment reporter for El Gordo Y La Flaca, the network's daily entertainment news and gossip show. During her career she has interviewed many major Latinos celebrities including Ricky Martin, Luis Miguel, Celia Cruz, and Michelle Rodriquez, among many others. From 2002 to 2006, Celines was the host of a Major League Baseball show on ESPN Deportes called Sabor a Beisbol. She is the only woman that ever hosted a Major League Baseball-produced television show. She also spent time as a co-host of the Spanish language morning radio program in New York called Coco y Celines de 6 AM-10 AM.

Toribio is married to her manager Giancarlo Chersich. Chersich proposed in May 2008 in Cannes, France. The two wed in April 2009 in the Dominican Republic.

Celines, is also well known for her academy in the Bronx, New York, where her staff teaches modeling, acting, and dance.

In most recent project, she executive produced Toronto Film Festival’s critically acclaimed “La Soga,” and appeared in films such as “Tropico De Sangre” with Michele Rodriguez and “America” with Edward James Olmos.
Thank you for allowing many young Latina ladies, to feel inspired and secure about accomplishing their goals and dreams.
