 “I love organizing things around the house, baking, cooking, reading novels or things about technology.”

What is a tradition you have and why?

“I have read other collaborator’s interviews from Mexico and they have explained certain Mexican traditions very well. My family’s tradition is getting together every Saturday to share a meal. We like to prepare seafood plates or my grandma makes pozole (a brothy, hearty Mexican soup made with hominy and meat, such as beef or pork, or seafood or vegetables.) I used to live in Colima and now I moved to the other side of the country, Veracruz, I made an effort to keep this tradition alive no matter where I live.”

If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive) who it would be, and why?

“I would love to have dinner with Chef Rachel Hooks. She is an Australian chef and her cooking style inspires me. I admire how she makes desserts and how detail-oriented she is. And by having dinner I mean cooking dinner with her so we can share cultural differences in our foods. I think I could learn some fancy techniques from her.”

What motivates you to wake up every day?

 “Listen… I’m not a morning person haha. However, what inspires me to wake up every day is the smiles I will receive and give. I wake up grateful that I get to live another day.”

What is a moment in your career and life you’re most proud of?

“I believe back in 2019, in the job I had before People Thrust I earned an award (Leave A Mark). This award is given to a person who contributes to the company and employee’s well-being and goes above and beyond. This award took me by surprise because I was managing a team of 60 people and I was only working in the company for 3 months. I used to be afraid of maternity and the responsibilities that entitle me, in addition, I was moving to a new place for the first time. I’m very proud of myself because a few years ago I was so afraid of the unknown and the changes and here I am embracing all of it. ”

What do you do when you are feeling deflated?

“I make an appointment and go to therapy and the beach is my happy place.”

What do you do to give back or pay it forward?

“I try to do small things daily like if I see an unhoused person I will give them food. A few times a year we go to an underprivileged neighborhood and give them clothing and groceries.”

Fun fact about you? Share something that nobody would guess about you.

“I’ve had 5 sprained ankles… which is crazy because they all happen within 5 years.”

Question from the previous MEM/WEW/TET “If you could have a superpower, which would it be, and how would you use it?”

“I would like to have the superpower of teleportation. First of all, I would use this for my pleasure haha! I would love to travel everywhere and be able to visit my family across the country at any given moment.”

What question do you have for the next MEM/WEW/THEY?

 “Is there a gift that you give yourself frequently? If not, what is something you would like to implement? (Think about self-care and emotional/physical/mental/spiritual health).”
