If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I love to travel so anywhere in the world would be a great experience, especially to experience it with my baby girl!  


Me encanta viajar, por eso ir a cualquier parte del mundo sería una experiencia maravillosa, especialmente poderlo compartir con mi hija!


What is one book that everyone must read?

A must read would be "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss because it teaches you to experience life to the fullest and take advantage of all the opportunities life brings. It also teaches you to accept the choices you make in your life even if they end up being bad choices. All the experiences in your life make you the person that you are and that person is pretty incredible!  


Deben leer "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" por Dr. Seuss porque les enseña a celebrar la vida y las oportunidades que trae a lo máximo. También te enseña a aceptar las deciciones que hayas tomado aunque allan sido deciciones malas. Todas tus experiencias de tu vida hacen la persona que eres y esa persona es bastante increíble!  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

My favorite teachers growing up were my parents. They have always been my inspiration and strongest supporters, encouragers and fans!
