Red Shoe Story
When the Gurri family left Cuba for the USA with one suitcase and $5 per person, mother Beba wore fashionable red shoes to leave as she lived. For four-year-old Margarita, those red shoes magically transformed the power of conflict into leadership with courage, humor, and grace.

Why Red Shoe?
To honor her parents, Dr. Gurri wore red shoes when she spoke. Soon, audiences were calling her Dr. Red Shoe. The name stuck.
