Inside La Academia[edit]

Fabiola inside La Academia felt very insecure. She was well received by critics in the majority of the concerts. Whenever she got bad critics it was because of the songs chosen for her by the professors or well, for some vocal mistakes that every artist has. La Academia was a reality show for singers from 16–25 years old. Inside the house they were taught singing, dancing, acting and many different activities. It was a four months' period, and each Sunday there was a concert, on which students were eliminated one by one. Fabiola showed everyone she was a great performer and that she had the potential to make it to the finale and so she did. Fabiola received many tasks during La Academia, like getting out some cliches she had gotten, she was marked because of imitating Christina Aguilera. Since she was a little girl, Fabiola listened to R&B, Jazz and Blues music. Considered as one of the best voices and students La Academia had, she got the 2nd place.
