- What is your passion?

– My passion is to make things better.

- What is the most significant advice that you have received?

- When I was 9 years-old and still living in Brazil, my father told me that he was proud of me because I didn’t accept the place society had for girls (and women) and always fought to be included and heard.  The advice he gave me was to never let anyone tell me I couldn’t do it.

- Who is the person that has inspired you the most and why?

– My mother.  She taught me to see the world from a very kind and companionate place, to understand that every person is in their own journey.  It helps me be more connected with people.

- What is the most significant advice that you have given?

– The best thing I can for people that seek my advice is to get them to realize that they deserve good things and get them to overcome what they perceive as a barrier and realize their potential. 

- What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment?

– Being able to create a life for myself when I came to the US.

- What has been one of your biggest struggles/challenges and how did you overcome it?

– As I achieved a high level of success in my career, the biggest challenge is being treated differently for being a women.  It is something that I continue to overcome.  My best weapon is knowing that being a woman is actually an advantage.

- What keeps you up at night?

– Knowing that not all people get the opportunities I do.

- What is the best advice that you would give to a young Latina?

- Don’t let anyone limit your potential. 

- One thing I know for sure...

- Everything is going to be OK.  If it is not OK, it is not the end.
