I was born and raised in Mexico by a traditional, born early 1900's, conflicted, southern mother. My mother was a hard-working woman that had a difficult childhood and had to grow fatherless, the oldest of 5 - 4 girls and the youngest was a boy - and she had to struggle between complying with tradition (being at home taking care of kids and husband), dealing with her extraordinarily tough & unyielding personality (more suitable for a male), and trying to raise kids that would excel and conquer the world while still observing our culture -with religion and acquiescence at its core. I was the rebel, I refused to fall into the 'tradition' trap, so I turned into my mother toughest challenge and she was mine. Now, I live a fulfilled - even if un-traditional - life. I am free of remorse, free of mental, verbal and physical abuse & violence and I have a wonderful husband of 25 years and a daughter, of whome I could not be more proud. Life is great! Life is what we make of it. We have the power to shape our future. Influencing people, talking and learning from others that have found success. I have a quick temper and I tend to be impatient with people that refuse to stop being victims.
My Vision for the Future
I will be contributing my experiences and helping others to realize their potential so they make the decision to take their future into their own hands.
