Mexican food and seafood, I was born and raised in Culiacán Sinaloa where it is customary to eat local fresh seafood such as aguachiles, ceviche, and cocktails.

My children are my inspiration and impulse that not only gives me vigor, enthusiasm, and energy but also motivates me to always move forward and seek to pursue the best version of myself.

What are you passionate about?

I'm passionate about community involvement. The best thing is receiving a call from one of the residents we’ve helped connect, showing her gratitude for the service our team is providing. This motivates me to continue helping close the digital divide.
