I was born and raised on the shores of New Jersey. My mother at the time was already separated from my father, living in an apartment with identical twins and a 10 year old. When she came to America at 18 to study English and business, she promised herself she would never let anything stop herself from success, and she didn’t. One day she met Mimi, a sweet woman with a kind heart. She took Mimi in to care for us, raise us and teach us everything we had to know while my my mother courageously worked. With time came success, and my sisters, mimi and I saw my mother flourish in her career no matter what milestone she faced along the way. Today, she is a breast cancer survivor, runs her own preschool she had built when I was 5 years old, has real estate around the world, owns a dairy farm in Jordanville, NY, and runs her own Mexican Restaurant. If there was an opportunity that presented itself, she would seize it. I’m so proud to have a mother who is strong, determined and cares so deeply for her daughters. She truly is an inspiration. Happy Mothers Day Mom!
