Ep. 7 – Barbara Fernandez Valdes, Educator & My Amazing Mother
Barbara Fernandez Valdes
Today’s show is a special one because I interview an amazing woman who was in education for over 30 years, who fought for equal rights for her students and lastly and selfishly most important is my loving mother.
I recorded this show while taking the altMBA and I am so glad I did it because I got to see a side of my mom you don’t normally get to know and on top of that record. I learned a lot more about her childhood, her struggles, and the perseverance she portrayed early on in her life to accomplish her dreams.
Outside of me bragging about my mom, October is a special month for her because her favorite holiday is Halloween and she also celebrates her wedding anniversary with my dad on the 29th.
I have no doubt that listening to this episode will give you some behind the scenes information on my mom’s story as a Latina and growing up with my grandparents who came to the US to seek a better life. Enjoy and let me know your favorite part in the comments!
