I was raised to believe in me, to pursue my goals and to never give up. When I moved to the states 10 years ago from Puerto Rico, things didn’t go as planned. I was out of a job for over a year and my husband lost the job offer that made us move to the US. I am now a proud first-time generation college graduate, an attorney and a dedicated Hispanic public servant in Orange County. I want my story to serve as an inspiration to others to realize that no matter life obstacles, when there is a WILL there is always a WAY!
