A music industry veteran, Stefani Vara has developed a series of successful independent music singles and has pushed the love of her culture to the forefront. Deciding to separate from a comfortable recording contract due to no longer willing to compromise her sound and beliefs, Stefani has taken control of her own career and has proudly infused her heritage and cultural beats into every song.

Known as the “Entrepreneurial Songstress”, Stefani balances an impressive resume of songs and videos, with various lifestyle/fashion collaborations in multimedia which includes co-hosting the entertainment on-line radio show “Flip Pop Radio with Sharp Dressed John and Stefani V” (which can be heard on I Heart Radio) and executive producing the digital reality web family series “Comida Caliente”.

With the strength and values of her family’s upbringing, Stefani has continued to inspire others through  her career, entrepreneurship, and volunteerism. Never one to stay quiet, Stefani has taken to social media to remind her followers and admirers to stay true to themselves, follow their passion, and make sure they speak up and use their “voice” to be heard.

Whether it’s assisting in rebuilding of homes (with local and national organizations) or donating her talent of singing for charity events, Stefani has continued to stay grounded and humble in a time where people tend to get lost in their own reality.

If Stefani’s entertainment career and charitable efforts weren’t enough, in 2013 she added yet another title to her resume — Creator / Executive Producer of the web reality series “Comida Caliente”. Successfully funded through Kickstarter, “Comida Caliente” showcases tradition of cooking and comradery of the Vara family.

Stefani’s creativity and positivity is a prime example of female empowerment for the next generation of female creatives and entrepreneurs Not waiting for her time to come, Stefani Vara is creating her own opportunities and making her own star shine!
