What is a tradition you have and why?

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

 “Here in Tijuana, there is a big immigration crisis. I like to donate clothing and food to shelters that support that community.

I love animals, but unfortunately, I can’t have them at my home and I would like to do something related to animal care, rights, shelters, etc in the near future.”

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

“Laugh at loud… you won’t believe what I am into. My wife recently “caught me” watching it. Drum rolls, please!!! I am a fan of robot fights. I love everything about it, the engineers’ thought process, the robots, the fights… EVERYTHING! 

Question from the previous MEM/WEW/TET? “What 3 wishes you would request the genie in a bottle?”

“1. Go to New Zealand, my fascination for this country started because I am a fan of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and after that, I kept researching it and found how beautiful the scenery is as well. 2. I want to find a suitcase with enough money that I can pay my loved ones’ mortgages 3. My final wish is that I want to be alive to see my grandchildren (if my daughter decides to be a mom one day).”

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

“If you could have a superpower, which would it be, and how would you use it?”
