Mi Vida A La Carrera

Elsa Gladys Cifuentes Aranzazu is the first female Consul General of Colombia in New York. She will be discussing her book, Mi Vida A La Carrera, which tells the story of her career in Colombia and the positive impact that the Alliance for Progress has created through her life of leadership and in service of the community.

The book travels through her life of overcoming obstacles, critics and barriers by transforming her difficulties, pain and sadness into opportunities for resilience and perseverance. She also reflects on education and culture as a way out of poverty and as a road to confronting the post-crisis and post-conflict atmosphere in Colombia.
