City you live in:
New York

Occupation and why?
Global Transformational Leader, speaker and author.
Because my purpose is to make a difference in people’s lives! There is nothing that fulfills my heart the most than contributing to the transformation of another human being. My mission is to connect every person to their life’s purpose so they can do what they love, use it to serve others while creating abundance for all.

A regular day consists of?
Daily gratitude session! (God is my everyday guide) Meditation, some dancing to keep me moving, being a mom of twins means running, playing, kissing…(that never stops!) working with my amazing executive assistant making sure my day doesn’t go as crazy (it usually is anyway and I love it) , answering a lot of emails + social media and being present. Every action I take is in congruence with my mission. I “walk my talk” and that is my strength to keep sharing my message with the world!

How do you define success?
Success is when you live a life that helps make this beautiful planet a better world. It is to be congruent with your core values.
No matter what you do or how much you earn, if you are doing what you love and you are serving others with it you are successful!!

What has been your biggest challenge?
Living domestic violence to the point that I almost died from it. It was one of the most difficult experience in my life. At the same time it became my biggest blessing because I now can inspire millions of people with my story that once again proves that we have a choice. We can become victims of our circumstances or use them for growth and to make us stronger. I choose to see this as an a amazing gift that helps me appreciate life and also helps me support other woman that have lived violence in their own life.
Today I am in the board of directors of Milagros Day. A nonprofit organization that supports women that have left abusive relationships, empowering them with the tools to transform their personal and financial lives forever.

What advice would you give a Latina who wants to follow in your footsteps?
NEVER GIVE UP! Have the FAITH to find and live your life’s purpose asking yourself this question: “If you had all the money in the world and all the time to enjoy it what would you do?” …”besides traveling the world and helping your family, what would you do with your time?”…
For some is to write or act or become a speaker . Whatever it is do it! Like my dear Les Brown says ”Jump and grow wings in your way down” just remember that when you follow your dreams the universe conspires in your favor. The “HOW” is not your business!

What’s on your bucket list?
My Seminars to be Sold Out at Madison Square Garden
To coach the President of the United States
To have my book translated it in every language as a world best seller so everyone in the planet can have a chance to transform their life!
To get married once again
To adopt a baby
And to continue living my purpose in every area of my life!!

I am proud to be Latina because:
I am passionate, unstoppable, and have a heart of service like all my gente latina!

How do you get your Latin fix?
I am a 100% Colombiana for I was born and raised in my country! We only speak Spanish at home plus the music is in my veins so every time I party I make my roots very proud!

Spanglish, English, Spanish?
All the above …I am still learning my English sometimes “is not very good looking” like my dear Celia Cruz used to say! LOL

What is your favorite Latin restaurant?
Natives! I am vegetarian and in this great Colombian restaurant I can eat my beans, platanitos and guacamole without worries!

My favorite Latina stereotype is:
Ay Dios! I am very expressive, sensual , feminine and very loving! I call all my friends “my dear” or “my love”!

Best advice from mami and/or abuelita:
Always be grateful for everyone who helps you in anyway. Remember that you are NOT better or less than anyone on the planet, you are just SPECIAL!

Favorite home remedy
Ginger tea for…pretty much anything!

Favorite Quote:
“We must be the change we want to see in the world”- Gandhi
and…
“El corazón agradecido se gana lo que está escondido”- Me

[fun]♦ My kids call me on it when I am not connected to my heart and say ”Mom you are in your ego” …Oh Dios what have I created!
♦ When I did my first seminar I was in front of 500 people with NO clue what I was going to say! …..I just told God…You are in control! And he has been since then every time I am on stage and in every step I take![/fun]

[career]
♦ In only eight years of living in USA I am living my American Dream! More than nine thousand people have graduated from my seminars in the past five years, my message has reached millions through National and International media like NBC, CNN, E! and many more, I am the spokesperson of the Nonprofit Organization for sexually abuse children “Kids For A New planet” with the United Nations. Because of this, I have received many humanitarian awards for my work in Colombia and Africa. I became the first and only _Latina_ to be one of the mentors of the prestigious “Billionaire Adventure Club” in Egypt in 2010 and I will go back this year! I was also chosen as a Good Will Ambassador to Bulgaria by the girls leadership organization GLOW in July of 2011. I have shared the stage with many of the most influential thinkers and leaders alive today! All of this while being a single mom! I thank God for all and my super hero mom who has been my biggest inspiration! [/career]

[description]My latinidad is tightly woven into the fabric of my daily life because it’s who I am.[/description]
