My Nomination: @YahooShine Women Who Shine @AsBestRecipes #WomenWhoShine - Sammy Makes Six

My Nomination: @YahooShine Women Who Shine @AsBestRecipes #WomenWhoShine

When I had the opportunity to nominate a special woman for Yahoo! Shine’s Women Who Shine, I immediately knew who it was going to be. This is a woman that I have gotten to know online and who I really admire. Like me she came from Mexico and when I see how she is really  following her dreams, and making them happen, she completely inspires me. 

I have watched Adriana the past months working on her blog, working on her YouTube channel, and doing it with such professionalism and commitment, that I know this is only the beginning for her. If someone is smart, they will scoop her up and put her on tv, because she is so charming, sweet and has a such a passion for what she is doing with her cooking. I'm very excited to see what the future holds for my fellow Latina.

Adriana Martin is truly  a Woman Who Shines.

Adriana Martin is the perfect example of what reaching for your dreams can accomplish. Born in Tamaulipas, Mexico and raised in Mexico City she grew up to become a very successful marketing executive. Later though, when she came to the U.S. in 2000, Adriana had to restart from the beginning and after 3 years of doing several jobs, a lot of hard work, and commitment Adriana was able to get back her career, working for a prestigious company as a marketing strategist. 

Now Adriana is reaching for the stars and with the support of her husband really following her dreams. She is Founder and Author of Adriana's Best Recipes, content developer, and social media influencer.  Her blog is a year old and she also has a fabulous YouTube channel, where you can find her cooking up amazing recipes using fresh, organic produce, supporting local farming as well as sharing her love of food, family, pets, and life. She tributes her blog to her grandmother who taught her the passion for making people happy by putting out delicious dishes. All done with the belief that "simple ingredients create masterpieces".

Connect with Adriana:

Get involved and vote (until Oct. 29, 2012), and help Yahoo pick one woman who shines, she will get the grand prize of $10,000. You can VOTE FOR ADRIANA daily until the last day of the contest. 

About Yahoo! Shine “Women Who Shine”
Women Who Shine is Yahoo! Shine’s inaugural women’s recognition program. Nominate your peers, mentors, family and any other women in your community who inspire you and others with their extraordinary achievements.  This program stands apart because the honorees are not the high-profile women or celebs you see in most other “Woman of the Year” or “Most Powerful Women” programs.  It’s women nominating the local heroes in their communities and it is Shine’s readers, not an editorial staff, who decide who wins.  For more info check out:
