SHE INSPIRES ALL AROUND HER TO HARNESS THE MOMENT, BELIEVE IN AND LOVE OURSELVES, AND STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT.
Lidia is a Patient Advocate in Austin, Texas, and was nominated by her friend, Marcy. Marcy says, “If she sees someone in need, she will put aside her own needs and time and do what she can to help that person out. Her mom passed away when she was 13 years old, and from what I can see, Lidia carries her mom's energy and light with her. Lidia is much younger than me, yet she has been one of my best teachers in life.”
Her energy, positivity, and desire to help others undoubtedly brighten our corner of the world. Marcy says, “She inspires all around her to harness the moment, believe in and love ourselves, and stand up for what is right. She has been nominated as an ambassador for health for the underserved in Austin. She has worked with youth in foster care, people in harbor from domestic violence, and other marginalized communities. Her life and love for herself help me and all of us in her life to love ourselves more.”
Lidia says her favorite mantra are these wise words from Mahatma Gandhi, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
