• Her childhood in a violent part of Colombia, where her father was a policeman who constantly fought the might of the drug cartels
• Dealing with continual bomb threats as a child
• Battling the stereotypes and expectations of being a girl in Colombia
• Moving to America, and the danger that accompanied her employment as a babysitter
• Her battle against poverty, and being presented with opportunities that pitted her beliefs against the chance to gain financial independence
