Who is your hero?
My hero is my grandmother, my father’s mother. She left Bulgaria at the age of 14 to marry my grandfather and a few years later, in 1926, was a mother traveling from Bessarabia to Brazil. She was a sweet, strong woman who taught me the power of resilience and love to strive in life.
