What is the most adventurous thing you've ever done?

Being stranded on an island twice was epic and grueling, but nothing can compare to the adventure of giving birth to my son at home.

What is one thing motherhood taught you?

More than anything, children learn by your example. I have to always show good character by being courageous, using my head and learning how to process emotions intelligently because my little boy is watching and processing everything. I'm grateful for this role and the added responsibility.

What is one thing that made you the person you are today?

Growing up in a multicultural home (my mom is from Bolivia and my dad is from Hong Kong) in a multicultural city (Miami) has given me a very open view of the world and the diverse group of people in it. Because of this, I'm always curious to learn about different cultures and other people in general.

More than anything, children learn by your example.
