Liana has worked for her family’s company for fifteen years and says she is ready to try new things. The next adventure however has not been disclosed to us at this time.
“It was a hard decision but also very easy at the same time. I am very happy. You never know how things end up down the road.” Liana said while leaving the door open for a return in the future.
In the past few years Liana has been know for her fundraising efforts with breast cancer. She lost her grandmother to the disease a few years ago. She also worked with her father, Carlito Fuente, on the Rare Pink project that hit the market at the end of 2020.
