Hola; muy agradecida con Jane por considerarnos a mi hija Darian y a mi para su blog. Como muchos saben recientemente en la Ciudad de Mexico tuvo lugar un terremoto que resulto con la perdida de vidas, hogares, edificios. Pero dentro de esta gran catastrofe se rescata la solidaridad que recibimos de parte de muchas partes del mundo, sin lugar a dudas el amor es el que prevalece mas alla de fronteras, idiomas o creencias.


Hello; very grateful to Jane for considering my daughter Darian and me for her blog. As many know recently in Mexico City an earthquake took place that resulted in the loss of lives, homes, buildings. But within this great catastrophe rescues the solidarity we receive from many parts of the world, without a doubt love is the one that prevails beyond borders, languages ​​or beliefs.

What else would you like to say to our young girls – our future change makers?

Pursue your dreams and sometimes the road might not be easy but once you have reached your dreams you will see that all the effort you did was for something, something good.
