    I met her fiancé Angélica Lozano for the anti-corruption citizen demand. I gave her my signature collection support and I said, “Thank you, too.”

    Now, that I see this breakthrough, and I say “thank you” again because we deposit our trust in people, but we're also aware of the responsibility that it entails.

    Claudia López has an inspiring story, not only from her academic and research background but also for her fearless endeavor in the political realm.

    Thanks for taking the risk and leading the generation behind you!

    It's not every day someone makes a mark on history. Keep on doing it well. ”
