Title : Former Pop Star Says Criticism About Her Spanish Is Key To Her Success
Description : Episode 010: 'I'm American, I'm Mexican, I'm Just Belen!' Featuring Belen De Leon

A big part of what Belen De Leon has had to conquer in life is standing outside of her comfort zone. Even early on, Belen’s bright ambitious spirit was a driving force for her success; she intuitively turned other’s doubt into a fire inside to prove that she could do it. Growing up in Texas with a Mexican background, she learned to speak a form of Spanish that was ‘Tex Mex,’ that was not "correct." After high school Belen signed a music contract to perform with Mexican Pop group La Onda. Performances were broadcast all over the world to different Spanish speaking countries and Belen needed to learn how to speak Spanish “correctly,” a major challenge to her comfort zone! After she got out of the music business and used her meteorology degree to be on television to deliver the weather in both English and Spanish on two different networks. She gained confidence that her bilingualism was indeed a great advantage. Today, working at 9 News Denver, Belen can bring her culture into her delivery of the weather and news. Belen continues to use any criticism of her background or “accent” as a fire inside to keep growing and staying true to who she is, BELEN!
