I Believe it Is Possible to Have BOTH a Successful Career and Travel the World!
I came to this country from the Dominican Republic when I was 14 years old. I had an idea of why my mother wanted to come here. My mother had described U.S to me as a land of opportunity where anything was possible, if you were willing to work hard for it. I really believed that.
So I quickly forced myself to learn English, got my first job at 16; all while keeping my grades up and participating in multiple extracurricular activities that the average teen had to handle.
When I first enrolled in college, I immediately fell in love with business and majored in economics and finance.
My hard work during college paid off and I got my first internship on Wall Street which led to a full time career.
Everything I’ve accomplished so far, I’ve worked very hard for. I believe that anything is possible. Which is why I refuse to believe that a career and traveling the world is out of the question.
I enjoy being a progressive woman who breaks barriers and makes money because I know what it’s like not to have any.
I also LOVE traveling. Seeing and learning how the rest of the world lives is inspiring to me.
So, I’m not ready to give up either one. I truly believe that I can achieve both. I want to be a role model to Latinas who aspire to see the world and pursue a career in business.
