Gisela Orozco

In Mexico, being a female journalist is often considered an MMC career: “mientras me caso,” or “while I get married.”

Not for Gisela Orozco, who has been a reporter and editor for 15 years. Gisela is currently the entertainment editor at Hoy in Chicago, where she writes about all sorts of cool stuff while balancing being a single mother.

She’s a talented woman who grew up in a small town and moved to the United States after college. Gisela started as a typist in the classifieds section at La Raza but worked her way up to editorial. A fun chat about seeking independence, talking to people and more!
