Life is a continual process of learning and growing, I know this. What I also know is that I spent MONTHS, staring in the mirror and not recognizing my own reflection, utterly lost, and only seeing myself for how others perceived me and no one… not even those closest to me even noticed. This journey back home this summer, wasn’t on accident, as I believe nothing that happens in life is. This was a Devine intervention to provide for the moments of impact I needed to redefine my destiny. You know you are winning the journey when you are happy for no reason because the moment you no longer attach your happiness to a person, a place, an event, your soul becomes unmistakably free and your spirit becomes unavoidably infectious because of it. #boston #trakingwithteacherlyfe #teacherlyfe
The Riches of Rubia Garcia
How rich is Rubia Garcia? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $100,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her online fame has led her to numerous opportunities both online and in the academic sphere. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Rubia is of Irish and Italian descent, and growing-up in New Orleans, at a young age she became highly interested in music. She started learning classical and jazz music while attending Edna Karr High School, which is a part of the New Orleans Public School System, and is located in the small community of Algiers on the west bank of the Mississippi River.
During her teens, she fell in love with Latin music, and then began training for dancing in 2001. She learned how to dance the Salsa and took lessons from known trainers such as Jorjet Alocer, Aurelio Gonzales, and Troy Anthony. For the next few years, she would train in the craft, and her love for dancing would lead her to live briefly in the Dominican Republic, to learn various dances such as Cha Cha, Merengue, and Bachata; she also learnt the Spanish language. After her return to the US, she enrolled at Louisiana State University.
Further Studies and Dance
Garcia completed an undergraduate degree in criminal justice and decided to further her studies by enrolling at The University of Holy Cross (UOHC), a liberal arts college located in New Orleans – she took up a degree in Geography and History. Not wanting to give up her passion for dance and music, she started teaching dance to youths in New Orleans, initially in primary schools and a black demographic. She also helped in the reconstruction and renovation of dance schools which had been damaged by disasters.
This led her to start her own dance school, named Soul II Sole, which earned internationally fame. She started to travel around the world to perform, and spent over a decade performing as well as teaching, becoming one of the most well-known members of the dance community hailing from New Orleans. She gained the moniker La Rubia – which means the passionate dancer – due to her dedication to keeping Latin dances alive. Through teaching dance, she discovered her love for teaching, and decided that it was another career that she could push through with. She loved seeing students grow, and this led her to start teaching at Orleans Parish Public Schools.
In 2016, with growing tensions in various political spheres and racial problems arising on several fronts, Rubia decided to express her opinions using the platform Facebook Live. It is a live streaming service available through the social media service Facebook which is one of the most popular social media websites in the world, holding the largest valuation for a newly listed initial public offering (IPO) at $104 billion. The website has over 2.3 billion monthly active users from all over the world.
She began by voicing her opinions on racist and volatile conditions happening all around the US, particularly on bullying, bigotry, internet trolls, and President Donald Trump. She continued posting videos of this kind which have led to a huge following online, with many of her videos reaching viral status. She’s received a lot of both positive and negative messages, with the negative ones criticizing her for acting black in her videos. She then started talking about her personality and background, mentioning that she learned to be thick skinned, as she grew up with eight siblings.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Garcia is married and has two children from that marriage. She has not opened up about her relationships or her marriage, preferring to keep them out of the spotlight. She has not said anything about her partner, only that she earned her last name, implying that she is married and that she deserves the man she is married to. However, many question her status, as it might mean that she is a single mom without proof that she has a partner.
