Channel 13 News Anchor Ybeth Bruzal said, “There are so many bad things that are happening around the world. It is nice to push the pause button on the crazy stories of the day, and then feature the people who are doing amazing things all across the area.”
Tina is also the owner of Palate Coffee Brewery in Sanford, a unique coffee shop that donates all of its profits to help fight human trafficking globally. She was chosen by the Central Florida community as the 2018 Hero of the Year, among of a field of 54 other Central Florida hometown heroes who also gave so willingly of their time to make a difference in the world.
