    I don't know how old I am in this photo. Maybe around 5 . I can just hear my mom setting up the shot, as she always did, telling me to walk towards her. I have often looked at this picture and called it "future businesswoman", as I turned out to be. Looking at it now, though, I am amazed at the determination in my gait, the fearlessness, the total and complete confidence, staring right at the lens. Ready to face the world. Ready to be ME.

    What happened on the road of life?

    No se que edad tendre en esta foto. Probablemente cinco anios. Oigo la voz de mami preparando la foto, diciendome que camine hacia ella. He mirado a esta foto muchas veces, y le puse el nombre de "futura mujer de negocios", como resulte serla. Pero hoy la mire, y me sorprende la determinacion en mi paso, la falta de miedo, la confianza total y completa, el mirar fijo sobre el objetivo. Lista para enfrentar al mundo. Lista para ser YO.

    Que paso en el camino de la vida?
