- About me:
- I'm a 28 year old Latina, wife and mother of 4 beautiful children. I currently work full time for a large non-profit and hope to return to college soon to earn my PhD. I was a teen mother, giving birth to my eldest child when I was 17. After graduating high school I worked very hard to eventually transfer to UCLA and earn a B.A. in Women's Studies. I care very deeply about women's rights, human rights and helping people to see the power they have within to improve their lives.
- My interests:
- Outside of work I spend most of my time with my kids and I enjoy it; I also enjoy painting, drawing, writing; shopping (without the kids); working out
- How I de-stress:
- Being alone for even a few minutes helps me so much, I close my eyes and taking deep breaths. Other options are writing, reading, working out, watching an old movie.
- Best advice I've gotten:
- Never feel bad for valuing your career and education just as much as you value your family. As long as you keep a healthy balance your children and family will benefit from you achieving your goals. Besides, men don't have to feel bad about being career driven, why should women? Also stop feeling so guilty for doing something for yourself sometimes, you deserve it :)
- My favorite movie:
- Steel Magnolias
