¡Felicitaciones a todas las compañeras seleccionadas!! Es una magnífica oportunidad. Gracias, Cristi, por este apoyo al Grupo. Lamento no haber contestado antes pues estuve viajando todo este mes y aunque leí tu mensaje anterior no tuve oportunidad de responderlo. Pero para otra ocasión también estoy de acuerdo en su publicación.
