Sánchez enjoyed international fame. She was successful at bullrings in Ecuador and Mexico and is one of the most well-recognized bullfighters at home. She debuted as a bullfighter in Madrid on February 13, 1993.
Sánchez was considered by many to be a representative of the feminist movement of the 1990s, as bullfighting is typically a male-dominated activity. Her fame even reached the United States, where Maria Celeste Arraras presented an article about her on Primer Impacto, the Univision TV .
