THE SPIRITU 4
HEAD, HEART, STOMACH, & FEET
I wish to inspire other women to believe in themselves, in their dreams and motivate them to be the best version of themselves. I also want to spread love and help people that need support to see the positive side of any situation.
Who has helped you grow in your life and career?
I've had different women contribute to my growth at different moments. They've helped and believed in me and I’m thankful for that because we need more women who support each other every day selflessly and without envy.
Do you have any wisdom you can share with young entrepreneurs as they begin their journey?
Work hard, be persistent, be a fighter and do not be afraid of failing. The important thing is to get up and knock on 100 doors to find the one that opens. Work in good faith and with love and the most important one for me is to trust in God. Sometimes we want something but God has a better plan for us. Work for what you want to make it happen! Things don't fall from the sky, you have to work until you achieve your goals because she who perseveres, wins.
March is Women’s History Month, and this year’s theme is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.” What are you personally doing to cultivate peace?
In order to be champions of peace, we definitely have to start with ourselves and be more loving and understanding and less violent. I try to always give more love and constantly try to become a better version of myself.
Name a woman that inspires you.
It is hard to mention just one, because there are so many I identify with as a result of their hard work and their support for other women and the community. We really need more women that gather and support each other. United as one we are much stronger.
