Class of 1996

Rosalia Castro

The 10 years I spent at Conchita Espinosa Academy were the most memorable of my childhood both academically and artistically.  After graduating from CEA (1996), I went on to attend Our Lady Lourdes Academy (2000) and Florida International University (2004) for my Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Mass Communications, specializing in Public Relations with a minor in Political Science.  I also spent over two decades of my life dancing Spanish dance.  It was at the Conservatory where I began my training at the age of 4 with Rosita Segovia. 

In 2000, I began working as an entertainment writer for, owned by Spanish Broadcasting System, in Miami.  Simultaneously, I worked at Florida International University’s College of Law.  In 2004, I moved to New York City where I worked as radio producer and entertainment editor for media mogul Dick Clark, serving his Spanish-language radio stations across the US.  Because of my involvement in the entertainment industry, I had the opportunity of working as a promoter and publicist for tours and concerts with artists and celebrities stuch as Ricardo Montaner, Oro Solido, Raphael de España, Bernie Williams, the New York Yankees, Jose Feliciano, and Rayito, among others.  Throughout my career, I’ve collaborated for weekly music and entertainment columns in newspapers such as El Diario La Prensa, the NY Daily News, El Especial, El Especialito, Spotlight Internacional, and Dominican Times News and had the opportunity of interviewing celebrities and well-renown personalities such as Romeo Santos, Victor Manuelle, Pitbull, Juan Luis Guerra and Julio Iglesias, to name a few.

Upon returning to my hometown of Miami, I worked in the healthcare industry for Baptist Health South Florida and Leon Medical Centers Health Plans.  Currently, I have returned to FIU where I am working at the Center for Children and Families and giving back to my community.

Attending CEA had a tremendous influence on me both personally and professionally.  Conchita Espinosa, Mrs. Diaz, Ms. Diaz, the administration and teachers had a tremendous impact on shaping the person I am today.  They reinforced the same principles of love, gratitude and respect that my parents instilled in me.  They emphasized the message in the school anthem to “Think, believe and accomplish!” (Pensar, creer y realizar).  CEA was an extension of my home, my family.  That is why CEA will always be my second home.  Now, as a proud CEA parent of a Class of 2024 student, I am blessed to have the opportunity to pass these same values and experiences to my son.  Through their focus on education, the arts, and pride in my roots, CEA helped shape me into a well-rounded, educated, artistic and confident individual.  Thank you for showing me how to believe and truly feel that “Cada día que pasa estaré mejor, mejor y mejor.”
