When I was growing up I wanted to be just like my big brother. My big brother was smart so I wanted to be smart. My big brother went to college so I wanted to go to college. My big brother was rich so I wanted to be rich. My big brother went off to accomplish great thing so I wanted to accomplish great things. I literally wanted to be just like him because in my eyes and in my opinion he could do no wrong and for that very reason I appreciated him. It was him that taught me to believe in my dreams no matter what and to never give up no matter what people said and no matter the odds that were up against me.
When I first decided I wanted to go to college the first person I approached was my brother. I knew he would be able to help me figure out how to pay for college because he had paid for college without the help of my parents so I knew he could offer advice to me. The first place he led me to were scholarships. He was against having to take out loans in order to obtain a college education and quite frankly I was against it too because I didn’t want to have to owe anyone money just to get an education.
The first scholarship I went after was a scholarship from Keith Mann. In order for me to win it all I had to do was write an essay about how receiving a scholarship would help me and how I would use it.
If you don’t know who Keith and Keely Man are they are legendary leaders in the search executive world. They are dedicated to make sure youth receive equal opportunities despite their upbringings.

The music business is cutthroat, according to some of the musical greats that have spent years trying to make it to the top. It’s not easy singing to stardom. It takes a certain type of individual that is willing to pay the price for fame and fortune. In order to make it in the music business these days, musicians must have a lot of talent and a head for business. Norka Luque, the young Venezuelan singer, has what it takes to make it to the top in the music industry. She has been planning for the day when the world recognizes her for her talent as well as for her business sense.
Norka’s story is not much different than the stories told by other musicians that started with nothing and found a place on the top of the music charts. Norka was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, and she began to sing in public when she was eight. Norka’s parents knew she had the gift, but the opportunities in Venezuela were limited. Norka wanted to pursue a musical career, but her parents also wanted her to get a business degree, so they convinced her to move to France to study business administration. Norka loved living in France. The French have a special love for music, and Norka wanted them to hear her music. She joined a small band that played in dance clubs on the weekends. The band had a rock and roll, reggae sound that was great dance music. Norka’s voice turned that sound into an unforgettable beat, and the clubs where the band played were always filled.
But Norka had a bigger vision in mind. She wanted to live in Miami and follow in the footsteps of her childhood idols, Gloria Estefan, and Shakira. Norka knew she had a voice that could make it to the top. All she needed was a break. That break came when Emilio Estefan heard her sing. Estefan is best known for producing “Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.” Emilio immediately offered Norka a record contract. Her first single was released in 2011. Her second single hit the Latino Dance Charts in 2012, and Norka was on her way to the top.
Norka also had help from music composer Archie Pena. Pena collaborated with Estefan on her first hit single as well as her second single, “Milagro.” Norka’s third record, “Tomorrowland” was released in 2016, and it is on its way to the top of the Billboard Dance Charts.
