What makes a confident woman?
For me a woman is confident when she is being herself. Having a positive attitude and constantly pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone.
2. Who are your role models for confident women? Why?
In my personal life, it would be my mother. From a young age, she instilled me in the importance of being confidence and making a difference in the world. In my professional life it would be Juana Bordas, she is a Best-selling author and the president of Mestiza Leadership International. I had the privilege of attending one of her motivational-speaking sessions and she inspired me take action and turn my vision into a reality.
3. When/where are you most confident?
When my knowledge and skills have a positive impact in particular a situation, and when I can inspire others to achieve their dreams.
