“ When I moved to The States I had a job where I was abused and exploited, deciding to get out of there, even though there was a chance of not having money to eat or pay rent, was absolutely scary but I put myself and my mental health first and left, and it was there where the coffee world was awaiting for me... and it saved me.
My future looks bright now... I have job opportunities opening up for me after wining the World Aeropress Championship. But most importantly for me being a woman/immigrant World Champion I have a huge responsibility representing women in coffee. I want to see competition rooms filled with women champs and I hope to be a big part of that process. We not only have to be kind to each other now as girls, we have to help each other, and encourage each other.” - Carolina @_cafetera_Aeropress World Champion 2018, Barista and Cafe Manager
