2018 Latina of Influence | Chiquis Rivera (Janney Marín)

Hispanic Lifestyle is pleased to recognize Janney Marin, better known as Chiquis Rivera, a American singer, author, entrepreneur, and television personality as a 2018 Latina of Influence. Ms. Rivera along with our entire list of 2018 Latinas of Influence are invited to participate in Hispanic Lifestyle’s 2018 Latina Conference taking place April 4 and 5, 2018 in Ontario, California.

The 33 year old the eldest daughter of the legendary Regional Mexican superstar Jenni Rivera. This year will be a very trying time for Chiquis as she tries to juggle her singing career, love life, and “Be Flawless” skincare and make-up line, while continuing to help her four siblings who need a mother-figure in their lives.

“The Riveras” the hit celeb-reality she also executive produces is slated to premiere on UNIVERSO in March, 11th 2018. The show follows Chiquis and her four siblings Jacqie, Mikey, Jenicka and Johnny as they step out of their mother’s shadow and tackle a whole new set of adult challenges including finding love, losing it and daring to speak their truth and conquer their dreams. Growing up isn’t easy but together they’re stronger.

In Mid-March Chiquis is set to release her 2nd studio album “Entre Botellas”.

In April 2015, Chiquis released her memoir titled “Forgiveness” which climbed to #15 on the New York Times Best Selling list.  In it she reveals that her father molested her when she was a little girl, and details the well-publicized fight with her mother before her death and not being able to say goodbye.

On June 2, 2015 Chiquis released her debut album, Ahora, and became the first woman to top the Latin Album charts since her late mom.  Many fans of Jenni and critics alike, feel Chiquis has not earned her career in music and that it was simply handed to her by her mother. Humbled by the journey, Chiquis is focused not so much on proving her critics wrong but proving to herself that she can do it.  She is currently working on her second record.

Chiquis Rivera was nominated by Dawn Page
