Q#3: Where do you find your inspiration? Judy: I found my inspiration from experiencing first hand the life of a first generation Portuguese/Peruvian immigrant up-bringing. From watching my entire family work hard and smart when they came to this country… both sides of my family got along great and we cared for eachother’s children while working nights etc to create a foundation and we all hung tight. I learned love. Music. Food. Integrity. Social skills. Sharing. And having my ideas and decisions always supported by my parents to go do you but with compassion and follow through. Be your word. That’s all you have when you have little 🙂
