A Woman in a Man's World

What do you want to be remembered for? For having made a positive change in Guatemala, preferably through fashion.

 
 

What is your superpower? Sarcasm and quick wit? (hahaha) Nah, I would say naïveté is my superpower because I almost never contemplate the possibility of failure.

Project that you consider to be the most significant in your career? Being one of the founders of Circuito Moda Guatemala (CMGT).  Even if it was a short‑lived attempt to set the foundations for a Fashion Industry in Guatemala, it gave me the opportunity to start working in what I love. 

 
 

"People are shocked when they learn I actually went to law school and used to work at a law firm before
working in fashion."
