I recently did an interview on Religious Life, the last question took me by surprise because it was not related to the topic of which we were talking about: Which advice would you give to a young Adriana? I must confess that my answer also surprised me when I said: "as time will goes by you will realize that the people around you impose too many expectations and want to see you act in certain ways. It will be very difficult to stay true to yourself but always fight for it because it's worth it.” When I look backward, I can pinpoint the exact moment when this turned into a non - negotiable value for me.

On my desk, I keep a tattered post-it note that reads, “Because of you, I can do something.” A few years ago, a client said this as he sat in my office talking about his new life. I still remember the moment he said that. I felt like an insignificant speck in his new life in Akron, Ohio, but, to him, I stood as a reminder of his new beginning. Who are the people in our own lives that call us to enter into the newness of life? What do these people represent?
