Maria Solis Belizaire

Hi, My name is Maria Solis Belizaire, and I’m a Social Influencer…….This is my story.    

Growing up, my life was met with many hardships.  Like many other children, I was raised by my divorced parents.  I was very outgoing, very athletic, and I kept many secrets.  After many years, I finally decided to tell my story and I need your help to do that.  

It all started in 2nd grade, when my mother, a local police officer, was caught committing fraud. After that, life went from bad to worse.  It never got any better.  She would spend the rest of her life in and out of incarceration.  Many times we didn’t know where she was, what we were going to eat, or when we were going to see her.  I grew up one of 4 kids, so everyone in school knew us well. They would often ask where she was but, as kids, we just invented stories.  Through time, we lived in a foster home, shelters, our house caught on fire twice, we lived off government aid and yet we still survived and found a way to smile through all of the pain.  Eventually, in 1999, she came down with Leukemia.  A month later she received a contaminated blood transfusion from the hospital.  Two days later she passed.  

Facing the pain of her death, my life flung into depression. I got involved in one abusive relationship after another.  With drug users and woman beaters, I suffered many blows.  I was constantly bullied until I was 32 for my big nose, black skin, and nappy hair.  I loved me, but I hated my life. 

A couple years ago I met someone who encouraged me to love myself more and it changed my life forever. That’s where this new journey began.  I decided to overcome many of these challenges by using my Face, Voice, and Laughter to speak up and show how all of us who have been through hard times can overcome any adversity.  To let everyone know that just because you are having a bad day, doesn’t mean you have a bad life.  At the end of the day, only we can control our happiness.  Heck, look what I’ve been through.

Through my constant videos I started to encourage others to change their lives too.  I became a runner; having run my 2nd marathon in 2015.  This year I ran for the Covenant House.  A shelter for young adults.  I learned how to Snowboard in Japan,  I post workout videos for my followers and blogs on diet and nutrition.  I share my adventures around the world.  I invite everyone into my life with all my joys and sorrows. 

Currently, I have been working with a few charities and I am on a mission to help raise money for schools across the globe to acquire uniforms so that other children can attend school.  I know it may sound silly, but I know this is what I was born to do.

I want my message to reach Millions of people. I am currently working to create media geared towards, Beauty, Fashion, Fitness, Travel, Relationships, Education and Philanthropy.

Just Gimme the Mic

Just

Born in Harlem and raised in the Bronx.  This Bronx native grew up during an era when hip hop exploded and evolved into a major music genre.  I have always been inspired by music as a child and always wanted to have some type of involvement in the entertainment industry.  Growing up, I always felt like I was born to be an entertainer but I now realize that helping others is much more fulfilling.

CoCo attended Lehman College and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications and Computer Science.  I interned at BET on 106 & Park and Channel 11 while attending college.  The internships helped me to understand the entertainment business from behind the scenes, networking and I learned how to make your image/brand marketable.  From my internship experiences, I decided to launch my own online radio show. In 2011, the first show was launched on Blogtalk radio. After one year on Blogtalk, we decided to expand to do a U-stream version of the show and currently we can be viewed on a variety of public access television stations.   

“Over the years, I have crossed paths with many people that have artistic talents so I wanted to be part of the process by providing an additional platform for artists, singers, authors and poets to display their skills.” Providing an additional platform of exposure for artist has always been my key element with the show. The foundation of each show is to educate through entertainment.  I love to hear about different perspectives and the journeys of each guest on the show while highlighting an important factor which can be beneficial to our viewing audience.  I recently started a one-on-one segment for industry artists to highlight their career paths and upcoming projects for their fans.  

In 2012, I was presented with the opportunity to co-host a segment called “16 Bars” for Video Music Box with Ralph McDaniels which airs on channel NYC22/25. You can also find me in a few independent films with Streetline Production, magazine features and cameos for other projects. The show has been blessed to receive two awards for our contributions within the industry and a few nominations. Our show is constantly changing and growing. So, hold on tight because “Just Gimme the Mic” is coming at you straight with no chaser.

Currently, you can find Just Gimme The Mic on Bronxnet Channel 68 on Cablevision every Wednesday at midnight. BRIC Network on Friday at 4:00pm on channels Channel: Time Warner 56 / Cablevision 69 / RCN 84 / Verizon FiOS 44. On Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTJqbhlnE8PHojlib2jJVKA, Blogtalk radio at www.blogtalkradio.com/coco4869
