The New 97.7 Woman Of The Week - Week of July 23, 2018
About Woman Of The Week: Katiria Pineda Colon was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent. She finished her BA at the University of Massachusetts Boston and later obtained her MS in Leadership at Northeastern University. At 27 years old Katiria has a beautiful vision and that is to empower and support women of color all over the world. She is a TV/Radio Personality, Creative Director and TV producer.
Katiria underwent an extensive period of reflection and self-evaluation. In 2016 she took a leap of faith with the help of her amazing mother who is also her biggest supporter. She decided to turn her dreams into realities by creating a project that would soon become her passion, her life, and her full-time job, called eXpozed TV. She aired her first episode on October 12th, 2016 and now she has 3 seasons on air so far with 10 episodes per season.
She started eXpozed about a year and a half ago with herself being the founder, creative director, and host. The in-house modeling agency was created. It consisted of women of all nationalities and ethnicities. Furthermore eXposed focuses on art and music. She realized that the music business in Boston is pretty limited so her goal is to change the narrative by any means necessary. She wants artists from Boston and other cities and countries to be heard and seen, without feeling the necessity of moving to NYC, Los Angeles, or Miami to get noticed. eXpozed.TV is a place where people can come and showcase their talent to the world.
eXpozed.tv was named "Show Of The Year" by Telemundo in 2017, and all of that was possible by endless support from the people. Katiria wanted to give back to them and to an orphanage in Senegal-Africa. She collected food, supplies, and toys for Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
Katiria's biggest dream is to empower and inspire everyone, mainly women of color. She wants them to know that anything is possible and that greatness can be achieved.
Favorite 97.7 Artists: Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston
