My Role Model is Bernabela*

*She is a great example, persistent, a fighter, work, with a humanitarian heart who always seek to give back to her community.


"She is Bernabela, the Director of Pura Utz and the best thing of all this is that she is my mother. To me she is like a friend, who challenges me to be a better person and see my flaws so that I can change and develop. I have always had her support and she is one of the most important people in my life and I have so much to be grateful to her for. She is the reason I am where I am today.”


“I am motivated to be like her because she has shown that despite of lacking financial and academic ressources, we as humans can get ahead with the talents we have. But this doesn’t mean we should conform. No this means that we should always be better and work hard for our goals - she is a woman of ‘FAITH’ and so positive. She has shown that dreams are possible and that you can be the exception from your circumstances.”
