Ingrid never really fit in a box or category. She was born and raised in Mexico and then went to Texas for boarding school. So at time, she was too Mexican for the norms of an American boarding school. And in returning to Mexico, she was almost too American for her Mexican colleagues. Either she was Mexican or she was an American.
And while she admits that she initially struggled with the “either/or” mentality, Ingrid began to think about a “both/and” mindset – one where she claimed an identity where she was both American and Mexican and beyond.

Gaby Natale believes in breaking barriers. And she embodies what she preaches.
As the first Latina to win 3 Daytime EMMYs back-to-back (as host and executive producer of her own show), the first Hispanic author to be published by HarperCollins’ Leadership division and one of the few foreign-born writers to narrate their audiobook in English, Gaby has had her own share of being “the first like her” in leadership spaces.
A sought-after thought leader and motivational speaker, Gaby has shared her inspirational message in Fortune 50 corporations, the United Nations and in her own TEDx talk encouraging underrepresented minorities to pioneer and be what they cannot (yet) see in the world.
