Tell us about yourself, please ...
I was born on June 6, in 1976 in the city of Garora, Lara state. I married a guy who I met at the age of 15 and we have three children. I thank God for such a cohesive family. I have a mother who always reminds me that family is the main thing that needs to be maintained in both material and moral sense.
Who do you do, what are your hobbies?
I started working in the education field in 2003, teaching courses in computer science, then in the Ministry of Education. Then Commercial Technical School was established in Guanare, where I taught computer science and worked for 9 years.
As for the hobby, I like crosswords and make desserts (cakes, cookies, truffles and alfajors) and some other unhealthy food (pizza and club sandwich).
Interesting combination - an engineer who bakes. Why did you decide to bake?
In view of the fact that it is impossible to live only on wages and that on the birthdays of my relatives we searched for recipes to make a cake and I decided to enroll in a course for making and decorating cakes. I liked to use creativity to do something, and it became recipes. On birthdays weddings and other family celebrations, I became a famous baker, of course with the help of my daughter and my spouse, to make some doll or figure that the customers ask.
