The LifeLabs Learning value that most resonates with me and why: Courage Over Comfort is a value that resonates with me the most because it’s a value that I strive to incorporate more of in my own life. Often times, we choose comfort because it is a safe-space, a defense mechanism. Nonetheless, within this comfort zone, there is very little room for growth – growth is the most rewarding yet challenging thing any person can experience. It’s a value and quality that I admire and cherish because it shows that you are invested in your own personal growth journey to be the best you. I say, if you are scared or are fearful of doing something, accomplishing something, aspiring to your goals, etc., do it with fear! Do it anyways.

Languages spoken: English and Spanish (fluent), Italian (conversational)
Fun fact: I was born in Colombia, moved to Texas when I was about a year old, then Connecticut, then back to Colombia, then to Maine, then to Denmark, then to Italy, then back to Maine and then to Austin, TX and maybe soon Denver, CO.
