Grl Pwr: the stories behind Someone Somewhere.
Andrea Rodríguez - People Coordinator
What are you most proud of in your life and/or work trajectory?
Uff, without a doubt, having come to Someone Somewhere; almost two years ago, I managed to get to Someone Somewhere as an intern, and from that moment I found wonderful people, willing to grow hand in hand with me, to teach everything they know and to learn from those around them. This experience not only impacted my professional life by making me exploit my skills and acquire a thousand more, but it has also given me incredible friendships. It has changed my way of seeing life for the better.
Daniela Ordóñez - B2B Design Lead & Account Manager USA
What is the balance between your personal and professional life?
I don't think I've always known how to do it, but I've gotten better at it over the years. I am very fortunate to have a flexible job that allows me to give 100% while respecting my personal time. The home office played a big part in my learning balance. As a result, I am 10000% more productive in my working hours, my distractions are fewer, and I can mix activities that do me good in my day-to-day life. For example, one thing I love to do is exercise at lunchtime. It's a great way to release stress on heavy days and come back with lots of energy the rest of the afternoon. Before, this would have seemed impossible.
Gabriela García - Impact Analyst
What is empowerment for you, and how do you experience it?
Being brave in the face of adverse situations for practical reasons.
Yazmin Arroyo - Production Manager
Tell us a bit of your personal story, successes, any learning you have had.
My development in the textile industry has been challenging. I've suffered from a lot of sexism regarding the positions I have achieved throughout my professional development. But, on the other hand, my personality has helped me. For Mexico, my character is very rough. Although, if I lived in a country with female emancipation, I would be funny, this feeling of not being in balance because of the culture in which I live sometimes confuses me.
Gloria Ortega - Design Lead
What makes you most proud to be a woman?
Seeing myself in other women and admiring the profound strength that lives in us.
Alejandra Hernández - Accountant
What things in life are you passionate about, what moves you?
I am passionate about learning and transmitting learning. To teach many women that they are not alone, that we will all grow by joining forces.
Ruth González Ayala - B2B Design Intern
What actions do you think can bring us closer to gender equality?
Communication, as humans, we have the gift of speech. Knowing how to communicate as individuals allows us to approach each other and understand the motives that move others. With this and listening (always respecting the point of view of others and understanding that everyone has different positions), only then we will achieve gender equity and equality.
Susana Basurto - Head of Brand and Innovation
What are you most proud of in your life and/or work path?
Since I was a little girl, I have been taught gratitude. Without a doubt, living every day being grateful for who I am and what surrounds me has been key to achieving my results and living in peace. I am proud to try to balance my personal and professional life, so I can always give my best in both ecosystems.
Mariana Martinez Hernandez - Creative Intern
What inspires you about other people?
Their attitude to see how they live things or how they face life can fill me with inspiration and courage.
Ana Karina Valencia - Creative
What would you like to hear to motivate you in challenging moments?
My phrase for those situations is: Do everything without fear. And if it scares you, do it too.
