Who’s your biggest female role model and why?
Jane Fonda — she’s a legend. She has worked extremely hard to have a successful career while also being a strong activist in the community. One of my favorite Jane Fonda quotes is, "Instead of drifting along like a leaf in a river, understand who you are and how you come across to people and what kind of an impact you have on the people around you and the community around you and the world, so that when you go out, you can feel you have made a positive difference."

Who’s your biggest female role model and why?
My biggest female role model is my Mom. She’s been my support for every challenge, my fan club for every success, my best friend for everything in between. I’m inspired by her fearlessness, I’m humbled by her generosity and I’m lifted by her sense of humor

What’s one piece of career advice you wish you could give your younger self?
Take more risks, take more risks, TAKE MORE RISKS! I would tell my younger self, don't just fill in the box, blow it up. Don't be afraid to bring your ideas to the table, let your voice be heard. Opportunities arise to those who seize it.

Who’s your biggest female role model and why?
My mom is my biggest role model. She immigrated from Panama to the US at a young age without knowing the language or culture. She went to night school to learn English while teaching Spanish to third graders during the day. She taught me to be a hard working, independent, compassionate, and adventurous human. She’s inspired me to grow without barriers, just like she did.

Don't be intimidated or afraid to take on new challenges because most growth happens outside of your comfort zone.

Who’s your biggest female role model and why?
My mom moved from Israel to the US in her 30’s not knowing any English. Not only did she learn a new language, but also became a CPA while being a wife and mom of two, and that was in addition to already having a law degree. She taught me to always have a firmness of mind and courage while demonstrating kindness and warmth. My mom is the most determined and resilient woman that I have ever met and inspires me every day.
