Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Grew up in Honduras and says she was always dreaming; never wanted to do anything "traditional," like becoming a doctor or lawyer.

  • 2.

    Originally wanted to be an architect, but her mother talked her out of it; convinced her to train as a secretary.

  • 3.

    Says, "because [my mother] pushed me into studying that, of course I was going to fail."

  • 4.

    When she moved to the U.S., she truly started to "know herself," realized that she found joy in creation.

  • 5.

    Says you have to keep a vision ahead of you, or else you'll remain stagnant and never grow.

  • 6.

    Opened a chocolate shop in New York with one of her friends, and it became so successful that she was able to open a second shop.

  • 7.

    Says she was never nervous when she came to the U.S.; she always felt that when she was here, she could achieve anything.

  • 8.

    Often thinks back to when she was eight years old and made caramels to sell at school; says you should always revisit what interested you at a young age.
