What is a recent achievement you wish to share?

I recently recreated my wedding cake! For someone who has never really baked before, this is a big win. I started with small cakes and for the past year, I worked on developing my skills by taking online classes. Despite the many failed attempts and the massive amounts of flour, milk, chocolate, and sugar that will haunt my dreams forever, I finally did it. Through determination and hard work, I turned the bitter taste of frustration and disappointment into the sweet taste of victory.

How are you an ally/practicing allyship for an underrepresented community?

Being a member of the Hispanic community myself, I understand the importance of being intentional about supporting underrepresented communities. In my free time, I mentor youths in minority groups and I continuously seek out community events that foster diversity. One of my favorite things about KFC is the commitment to D&I and I'm excited to be participating in the upcoming global Inclusive Leadership pilot program.

What's a company/organization you think is making an impact for growth and good?

Adelante Hispanic Achievers, Inc. is doing an amazing job at supporting Louisville's Latinx youth and empowering them to reach their full potential. Adelante works with middle school students and equips them with tools and resources to ensure a successful transition into high school, college and eventually a professional career.

What is your career aspiration/goal? Do you have a "dream position"?

My goal is to navigate through each of our different brands and experience an International assignment.

What is your favorite menu item from any of our brands (it's ok if it's not your brand)

Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Tacos!
