    “No matter if we are in a developing country or developed country, as women, we are all struggling and dealing with different challenges in our lives. But we have one very big advantage and that is we don’t give up that easily and we make the best of what we have. I am strong because I been inspired many strong women in my life. I can’t think about a single weak woman because they don’t exist.

    “Though the logistics industry now has more female presence than before, it is still up to us to serve as role models for future female generations to come. Currently in the Dominican Republic, you can find few women dedicated to breakbulk yet there are many directly involved in logistics and scaling high positions in this sector.
    If we really want to see change, we have to do the work, participate actively and support each other. That’s why it is my belief that organizations such as WISTA are part of what can encourage change and help empower females."
