Having a famous father or mother does not mean that everything is easy, and it is that although in most cases there are more economic and social facilities, one must also face the stigma of be ‘daughters of’. Fear of labels and the desire to carve out a future independent of that of their parents have been the two main reasons why these young women have worked hard to carry out their careers. From Spanish characters like Rocío Crusset or Lucía Rivera to figures outside our borders among which stand out Kaia Gerber, Lila Grace of Lourdes Leon. We collect the promising stories of each of them.
