María Enríquez de Allen

She is a role model to all women: her advice was never to give up, always to have hope and faith, and to strive to create a better future, not only for yourself and your family, but for the whole community and, in doing so, the whole human race. Never stop working, always keep experimenting with creativity and searching for ways to do everything with "gusto" and imagination, so that you can have fun doing it. María Enríquez de Allen's greatest joy came from doing her art work. —Mario Castillo, her son
