Melissa Ortiz

This week we're sitting down with a true change maker who is making this her era. Melissa Ortiz is a world-class athlete and social entrepreneur. Throughout her career as a professional soccer player, she's broken boundaries, becoming the first Colombian woman to play on a professional soccer team in the US. She's played for the Colombian Women's National Football Team, as well as professionally in Boston and Iceland. She's creating real-world change by blazing trails for the next generation of female athletes and creating sustainable jobs for artisans in Colombia through her business, Vakano Bracelets. Perhaps most importantly, Melissa has developed a mindset of owning her journey, fully living in the moment and realizing that failure is part of the process. In this episode, Melissa will teach us why owning your journey is essential to making this your era.
