I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the US when I was 3 years old with my Mom. She is my biggest inspiration and the textbook definition of an Independent woman. I hope to be even half the woman she is now, and later on, as a mother. I studied at Olympia high school where I had a difficult time with dealing with bullies. I decided to leave and pursue my GED. I plan now to study cosmetology because it’s always been a hobby, and then to study business and a profession involving kids. Right now I’m a swim instructor and life guard at the YMCA. I enjoy my job so much because I get to work up close with children of all ages and get to know each and every one of them while teaching them something I share an interest with them in. It makes me feel so proud when I see them improve and enjoy swimming! In the future I hope to be a strong Latina woman that other young ladies can look up to not only in Central Florida but around the US and Central America.
In Her Own Words:“Never let anyone take your joy or your smile away from you! Do what makes YOU happy, you can do whatever you put your mind, time, and positive energy towards! All you need is a plan.”
