Maria Otero, Highest-Ranking Latina in State Department’s History

Today Otero is most inspired by the people she meets in her work: “There are so many people around the world who are dedicating their lives to making it a better place. Whether their work is in climate change, human rights, modern slavery, refugees, or in any of the other areas I work in, I am constantly inspired by their courage.”

Otero’s advice to young Latina women: “Work hard. You can’t always see the end of the road, or where your career will be in twenty years. Instead, find people to mentor and guide you along the way, and be intentional about asking for help. Help other young women as you go, see yourself as a leader, and never think that you have to do this alone.
