Vicky Curiel Has a Business Degree

Vicky Curiel is originally from Washington Heights, New York, where she was born to parents of Dominican descent. Growing up, her parents always emphasized the importance of hustling and bustling. In her LinkedIn description, it is noted that:

"Being tough and hard working is in her DNA – growing up seeing her hard-working parents working on their own grocery stores (bodegas) which they named Vicky's Superettes, she passes this along to her team in all they do – and it shows."

Vicky attended John F. Kennedy High School before going off to college. With the vision of being an entrepreneur and managing her businesses, she enrolled to study Business Management at Mercy College, New York, from January 1990 to August 1993.

Vicky Has Owned Her Own Café

After completing her college education, Vicky Curiel started working at Discovery on February 4, 1994, in Miami, Florida. When she left the cable channel in 2000, her job title was manager of the network operations center.

Vicky put her entrepreneurial skill to use in December 2007 when she became the owner of Tamboras Grill Cafe until June 2017. At some point during those nine years as a Cafe owner, she doubled as the CEO of Double Empire Records from November 2013 to June 2017. By this time, she had moved to Los Angeles.

However, the businesswoman returned to Miami to establish another company for herself, an entertainment company called International Hub Records. She founded the company around the same time she left her position at the café and Double Empire Records and has been its CEO for five years.

Vicky Curiel Created the Band Bella Dose

One of her earliest works as CEO of International Hub Records was to hold country-wide auditions in search of gifted young women who would form "the first ever bilingual Latin pop girl group." While holding auditions in Miami, she discovered the girls she had been looking for and brought them to Los Angeles.

After teaching them various musical techniques, such as playing basic instruments, and understanding sound engineering and music theory, the band Bella Dose was formed in 2017 as a pop music group. The group's four members are Jenni Hernandez, Melany Rivera, Thais Rodriguez, and Brianna Leah.

Vicky Reacted to Her Daughter's Scandal with Her Boyfriend

Vicky Curiel's daughter, DaniLeigh, dated rapper DaBaby in a two-year on-and-off relationship that produced a daughter.
