This month we want to highlight the story of a Bolivian woman who, without stopping doing what she loves and being herself, has broken schemes and has worked very hard to achieve her life goals. Today we want you to meet Ana Lia Gonzales Magueño - also known as Lita, a woman who was born and grew up in the city of El Alto - Bolivia, located at 4060 meters above sea level and very close to the highest mountains in the region. Today, Lita's work and passion are visible in Bolivia and internationally, thus, she has taught us that everything is possible in the minds of girls and women who want to reach the top.
"The mountain has changed our lives for the better."
