Nely Galán: ‘Self-Made’ TV Executive who came from Cuba

Nely Galán’s immigrant story began in Cuba in the 1960s, and has yet to end. When she and her family arrived in the United States, they started over from scratch. She saw how hard her parents worked, and followed suit. The “immigrant mindset” would inform everything she did thereafter; she credits that thinking with her success as an executive, motivational speaker, and advocate for women’s empowerment.
