I had the pleasure of interviewing Dorkys Ramos, an illustrator, editor and CEO of Porcupine Hugs, for InspirationaLatinos podcast. Her story is one which everyone should hear and because of this I excerpted some of the interview for you all to hear in Questions to Ask podcast.
Two weeks before being diagnosed with breast cancer, she launched Porcupine Hugs, a stationery company, with the full purpose of making people smile. Unbeknownst to her, not only was she destined to make people smile, but she is teaching them to live their lives to the fullest and not to let anything determine their destiny.
What drives her? Her M.O. of seeing the light in everything. Thanks to it, she has been able to live with breast cancer for the past 6+ years and not let it define her. She has gone through ups and downs, but through it all, she has persevere and always managed to refocus on her endeavors and passions. She keeps going.
In this interview she helps us learn the questions to ask when we are faced with adversity and how we should move forward in refocusing our life one step at a time.
She is truly an inspiration to us all.
