¿Qué te motiva? What inspires you?

¿Qué le dirías a tu yo más joven sobre donde te encuentras ahora en tu vida? What would you tell your younger self about where you are in life?

Make space for silence- there are answers there, keep going!

Aunque todo lo que has hecho en tu vida es producto de tus esfuerzos, siempre tenemos personas que nos han apoyado a las que agradecer o recordar. ¿Quiénes son esas personas para tí y por qué? Although everything you’ve accomplished in your life is the product of your efforts, there are always people to thank or think about who supported you. Who are those people for you and why?

My grandmothers Maria Ester De Villalva and Catherine Joan Chichester. Maria Ester had a great sense of humor, was a wonderful storyteller and worked hard her whole life as a housekeeper and cook to support my father through school despite having a second grade education herself. Catherine Joan was a woman of many talents; a seamstress who made matching clothes for all 4 of her daughters and costumes for local plays and later a small planes pilot and pilot instructor at a time where few women had careers at all.
