here. That's her signature on the waistband of the dress (Yes, I really did tear up a real $1 bill). She is the very smart daughter or Mexican immigrants in Southern California. When she finished high school, she was simply going to go to work to help support her family, but one teacher convinced her to go to college and helped her apply. Although clearly capable in the world of business, she repeatedly put her career on hold to help her family and support her husband. Eventually, she became the highest ranking Latina in the Bush Administration. I bet our politics are very different, but I admire her. I also willing to bet that she has conflicted ideas about the world of work, too!
