“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”  How many of you tried saying this to a mirror or even talk to the mirror? Indeed this has been as old as time. But mirror are our own best friend and also can be the truth and reality of what you really are. 

With this, comedienne Giselle Sanchez brings to life “Salaminkera,” a mirror that actually talks to you and tells you about your career, family life, and love life.
