Elizabeth Nuñez recently celebrated her one-year anniversary as the Deputy Director of MusArt Music Management (MusArt).
Although she has been part of the organization for many years, it was only last year that Nuñez was formally asked to join the executive board of the organization to represent it and help it grow further.
MusArt, led by Daniel Guzman, a decorated combat marine, unites communities through music and entertainment, encompassing all facets of the music industry, from production to talent. Nuñez serves as the backbone that keeps it all running smoothly, and she shares a longstanding friendship with Daniel since childhood.
Her commitment to lending a helping hand and offering hope to those in need was sparked when, as a child, Nuñez witnessed the kindness of a stranger.
Despite grappling with personal medical issues, including Lupus, an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks its own tissues, Nuñez passionately champions various causes, from animals to veterans and mental health.
With all this already on her plate, you might think she would be content, but Nuñez has added another role to her already impressive resume and life accomplishments.
She has taken up the position of treasurer for Pa’lante Para Todos Incorporated, a nonprofit subdivision of MusArt dedicated to humanitarian work within the community. Their inaugural unveiling took place earlier in the month at the Puerto Rican Day parade in Manhattan.
During our interview, Nuñez became emotional when explaining the driving force behind her actions. She concluded with these tearful words: “I do what I do to give hope to others facing problems like mine and to inspire them, showing that it doesn’t have to keep us down.”
Based on everything I have witnessed over the past two years, I have no doubt that this is just the beginning of an already impressive career and body of work.
