“Life is not about where you start, but where you’re going”
“I was raised by a single mother who was the perfect role model for me. She instilled a strong work ethic and deeply valued her family and the community.
She worked in the cotton, tobacco and coffee fields in my native country of Honduras. When we were at a very young age my siblings and I worked right alongside her in the fields. During the coffee beans picking season we were all out in the fields again.
We did what we had to do to have food on our tables and clothes on our backs. The greatest lesson I learned from this experience and from my mother is that life is not about where you start, but where you’re going.
I was fortunate to come to the United States and become a part of the incredible community of Skagit County.
I hope my candidacy and role on City Council will be an inspiration for other Latino citizens and our youth, who are capable of becoming the next great leaders here in Skagit.”
