A CONVERSATION WITH ELIZABETH GARCIA
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Although I love living in Miami, if I had a choice I would choose Los Angeles. The weather is perfect, and the hustle and bustle is great for my beauty endeavors.
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would they be?
Michelle Obama. She has accomplished so much even before moving into the White House. Her grace and charm was a perfect example of how women can maintain professionalism, juggle so many hats and face criticism in the public eye. She did it all and made it seem effortless.
Best advice you’ve been given:
Never give up even when you feel like throwing in the towel. Trust, and have faith that God is still able.
Who is your role model and why?
There are three: my grandmother for her perseverance, my mother for her nurturing ways, and God because His word says, “Yes, I can.”
Something interesting about you?
I’m a survivor of domestic violence, and no one knew that I was involved in such a violent relationship that almost cost me my life. For this reason, I’m passionate about women’s empowerment. Ms. Corporate America means more to me than just winning a crown.
