Tell us about your proudest accomplishment.

Besides raising 3 kids, this is one of my proudest accomplishment: In 2017 Mexico was struck by one of the most devastating earthquakes. I raised over 4000€ in Spain and organized a team to build temporary houses in a community very close to my hometown for families in great need.
