I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. My dad is a first-generation Argentinian, as my grandparents emigrated from Russia and Poland. My mom is from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. I moved to Cleveland from Barcelona in April 2017.  

The pioneers and supporters of International Women’s Day believe that “from challenges come change.” What has been the largest challenge in your journey toward personal success? 

 The hardest challenge was moving to different countries with different languages and cultures, which meant having to be flexible and adaptable just to survive. Yet, that ability becomes a strength when you work in something that changes as quickly as technology does.  

You have been nominated for this recognition by another amazing person, proving that we are so much stronger when we support one another. What is one piece of advice you have for women in your community and all over the world?  

I love how we are debunking the myth that women don’t support women; we are stronger together. My piece of advice is to look and go beyond the scope of those around you. We often limit ourselves because we frame our lives within specific circumstances. I believe those who have some level of opportunity must work towards disrupting myths and collective growth.  

How can the greater Cleveland community encourage, support, and amplify the success of international women?  

I think more people are recognizing the advantages of welcoming and supporting foreigners, leading to a powerful transformation. Cities that have successfully fostered and integrated immigrant talent put themselves in a different league. I feel that the Cleveland community is uniquely supportive and willing to collaborate. I believe if Cleveland stays true to this essence, we’ll only have positive returns.
