MARISSA ZARAGOZA / CD. MÉXICO
Since I was little I remember my goal was to be like my father. He is an engineer so when the time came to pick a profession, the path was natural for me. There I was graduating on Electronic Engineering on a class where only 8% were women. I learned to work with men and among men, always competing to demonstrate my abilities and earn their approval.
Years passed, I decided to get married and create a family, I understood that those developed abilities were not enough for my new role as mother. I decided to disguise my incapacity covering it up with my professional success and depriving myself of enjoying the first years of my first two children.
When I met Jness, I started a journey to make amends with myself, with the sensible and motherly woman within me. I stopped to run away from myself and built the strength to face my fears, evaluate and surrender to my true passion.
From the bottom of my heart, I am grateful to Jness, my friends community, for helping me to discover the Joy of living and to build the human relationships I longed for since I was little.
