My whole life has been surrounded by athletes and sports. Growing up, I played tennis, golf, volleyball, softball, field hockey, and even handball (Argentinean sport). SPORTS have been the reason why today I’m a happy mom and philanthropreneur.
After traveling around the world for 5 months with our family of 6 (1, 2, 3 and 4 year old at the time) I learned so much and I also realized that my PURPOSE in life was to GIVE to those little ones in need. After seeing the best (fancy hotels) to seeing the worst (floating villages, kids running barefoot to their homes made out of cardboard, etc), I can say that all I want is to bring BIG SMILE on their faces and LIFT them up.
I could write a book someday about coming to America to play golf in a full ride speaking 0 English, working 3 jobs to sustain myself so my parents wouldn’t have to sell their car or ask friends for money because things were getting harder at home, seating in the wrong class for a whole semester, telling countless no sense phrases, and the list goes on and on… l have SO many good and bad stories and met so many great people that LIFT me up me when I was down and encouraged me to always be myself and work hard for your dreams. If there is one person that inspired me to do this is my mom. She’s the most selfless, generous, courageous and kind (she helps today keeping 20+ abandoned and/or abused sweet girls safe and in need on a happy home in Dolores (my hometown) in Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Being a mom of 4 funny, crazy, bilingual, chaotic, and smart kids (can’t help the mom love here) is the best thing that ever happened in my life, and also bringing to life my PURPOSE of helping these fragile, vulnerable and helpless children means everything.
