We had the good fortune of connecting with Michelle Padilla and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michelle, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is the name. why I started the my brand. The name The Awareness Show is about different causes and events . When I named the Show The Awareness show I got diagnosed with a rare disease called 22q11 its like Dow Syndrome. No new about this rare disease so I wanted people to be more aware of the disease/syndrome.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The Awareness show is about different causes and events, We have had so many wonderful guests on the show. For example Dawn, Wells, Marrion Ross. Our show is fun and loving show. We get a lot good feed back and our guest want to come back for more.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my best friend to the outlets. My not sure she would like the beaches out here in Oxnard. We both love to shop. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
