When I was a little girl, I wanted two things: to be free to pursue my dreams and to dance flamenco. I grew up in the world capital of salsa dancing, Cali, Colombia, so flamenco wasn’t very popular. And I dreamed of being a journalist, which in a gangster-dominated culture isn’t the easiest path, either.
The two dreams came true at their own pace and for very different reasons. And while one was realized whether I liked it or not, I found my way to the other dream at exactly the right time and place in my life.
