“I was born and raised in El Salvador. Throughout my childhood there were hard times, but it was good because I always had my mother, father, and family by my side. When I was little I had always wanted to be a nurse, but later on I found out that my passion was to sew clothes. Sadly, I had to leave El Salvador when I was an adult because I had to find a job somewhere outside from El Salvador to give my children a better life. The type of jobs I worked were all sewing clothes.”

“Naci y creci en El Salvador. A lo largo de mi infancia hubo momentos deficiles pero todo fue bueno por que tuve a mi madre,padre,y familia a mi lado.Cuando era pequeña, siempre había querido ser enfermera, pero más tarde descubrí que mi pasión era coser ropa. Por desgracia tuve que dejar El Salvador quando era una adulta por que tenia que encontrar un trabajo afuera de El Salvador para dar les a mis hijos una vida mejor. El tipo de trabajo que yo trabajava era cosiendo ropa.”
