Sylvia’s goal is to inspire others to reach their full potential, so they recognise their worth. A quote she always keeps in mind is:
“Where I live today might not be my final destination, but a great place where I can explore, learn about myself and others, and grow. Then, when the time comes, I will continue my next journey.”
Apart from coaching, Sylvia has two young girls who speak four languages. She enjoys dancing Cuban salsa, hiking, running, walking, and being in nature.
