Tell us about the entrepreneurial milestones you accomplished?
I consider that the largest milestone I have accomplished is having successfully opened my own law firm at the age of 29 years old as a first-generation American, Latina woman. That is a huge accomplishment in a country where Latinas account for less than 2% of American lawyers. I just completed 2 years in business on January 25, 2021, despite facing several financial obstacles in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I currently serve 38 immigrant families and this number continues to grow.
What type of entrepreneur are you?

What CT entrepreneur ecosystem resources have helped you succeed?
I try to take advantage of all networking and business workshop opportunities I can in the area of Hartford to expand my professional network. One of my main goals is for my business to grow in such a way that I can hire staff in the near future to be able to help and serve more immigrants in our community. I also would like to open another office space location in southeastern Connecticut where there is a demand for immigration legal services due to the growing immigrant population in the area.
