I am a person that is driven by great faith in the possibilities, and with such optimistic attitude I do things that most find intimidating or impossible, like organizing the first trade mission from Los Angeles to South Africa, immediately after the release of Nelson Mandela, while a student at a community college (Pasadena City College).
