Where were you born?
I’m an only child, loved by my mother, stepfather, and godparents - and I have a large extended family in Peru.
How did you make your way to Richmond?
I was Governor Youngkin’s Rapid Response Director on his campaign – the night that we won, he asked me not to go anywhere and to come down to Richmond.
Were you comfortable with the English language when you first came to the U.S.?
When I first arrived to the United States in December of 1999, I didn’t speak or understand English. Today, I speak English, Spanish and very poor French.
What do you consider your most important career choice, and why?
Joining Governor Youngkin’s campaign and then administration, because now I have the pleasure of coming in every day to help execute the Governor’s vision as he delivers for all Virginians on the campaign promises he made to make Virginia the best place to live, work, and raise a family.
What advice would you give to a teenage version of “you”?
Be patient, things might not necessarily develop at the speed you want them to happen – but you will achieve your goals and see your dreams come true.
