If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose… Susan Sontag because she was not only wrote outstanding novels and essays, but she excelled in other areas such as art, photography, film, and theater. And she was a teacher! She was a woman with a well-defined ideology and surely many stories to tell.
Three words that best describe my working style are… persistent, creative, and dedicated.
A person I admire or consider a hero is… Dolores Huerta. She co-founded the National Farm Worker´s Association and she popularized the slogan ¨Sí se puede´´ (Yes, we can). She improved the social and economic conditions for farm workers.
