In a note to staff members, People en Español Editor Armando Correa wrote: "After 10 fruitful years as our Fashion and Beauty Director, María “Kika” Rocha has decided to leave People en Español to continue her career on television, develop her blog, and promote her forthcoming line of designer bags." In the same note, Correa introduced Úrsula Carranza, a former editor of Siempre Mujer, as the magazine's new Fashion and Beauty Director.

During her 10-year tenure at People en Español, Rocha evolved to become a brand of her own and a sort of Hispanic ambassador to all things beauty & fashion.

In addition to her job at the magazine, she has been a fashion consultant for shows on Univision, Telemundo and CNN en Español, and has hosted some of the most important fashion and celebrity events in the Hispanic world, including the Latin Grammys, Premios lo Nuestro and the Latin Billboard Awards.

Rocha also writes a daily blog, DeTacones.com. She is a very active member of the Twitter community, where she counts almost 75,000 followers and where she shares her beauty and fashion tips using the hashtag #tipsdekika.
