Our next Subscriber Spotlight is Raquel from Brooklyn, NY.
What keeps Raquel going when she's having a bad day:
Knowing that my family made great sacrifices so that I can have ALL of the opportunities, and wanting to do the same for my daughters.
There are so many - one that is great to start my day RIGHT is "I Am Somebody" by Santana feat. Will I. Am. Listen to it and I swear you'll be inspired to conquer the day!
Raquel is most proud of:
The name I've made for myself as a champion of the written word in the underground NYC literary scene. I love having this reputation!
The person who most inspires Raquel:
The women in my family, young and old, who bust their butt every day to "make a way," and the sole man among us, my Papi Miguel, for actually making a way for us kids. Whenever I think "I can't do this!" I remember that THEY DID IT, and with much less at their disposal. It's incredibly humbling.
