Andrea participated in a motivational speech for our annual kick off and it was spectacular!

A Guatemalan woman, an example for men and women alike, that has demonstrated that there is really no impedimient to accomplish set goals. She emphasized on having clarity on the goals we set for ourselves, a plan to achieve them, and being willing to make all the necessary efforts will then allow us to reach the summit. And that every goal we fulfill is not the end, but just a part of the process of a purpose diven life.

Andrea's speaking engagements are an excellent living example, a great source of inspiration that demonstrates that we can overcome any obstacle presented and achieve our goals if we check our daily attitude towards adversity and act upon it. 

Las conferencias de Andrea son un excelente ejemplo de vida, una gran fuente de inspiración en que se evidencia que podemos sobrepasar cualquier obstáculo y lograr nuestros objetivos si revisamos nuestras actitudes diarias ante las adversidades y actuamos en consecuencia.
Fue un privilegio el poder vivir la experiencia de conocer en persona a un ser humano con semejantes cualidades de perseverancia y dedicación. Mis más sinceras felicitaciones.

Participants of the event are at a loss for words to describe the positive impact of Andrea's involvement. Amongst others, we could highlight: "inspiring", "motivating", "daring", "valuable", etc. We'll surely have her in mind for future events. 

- José Antonio García

Waipahu High School, Hawaii

Thank you for contributing an inspiring presentation on preparing to become the first woman to climb to the summit of Everest from Central America. You not only managed to hold the attention but actively engaged and inspired about 500 students for an entire hour - not something many could do. You really expanded the horizons with your presentation, helped students learn not only how to "Dream Big", but also share clear and logical thinking about how to work to make a dream come true.

Andrea Cardona has become one of my favorite people! She gave an outstanding presentation at BNSF Corporate Headquarters earlier this year. Hearing her amazing story, and the strength and determination it took, has greatly challenged me to go after my own “Everest” like never before. I can’t wait for her to come back and share more of her adventures with us!

Very interesting, as usual, and motivational. Focused in fulfilling objectives, something that stood out was that she could easily change the subjet and the atmosphere to what we requested.

Andrea is surprising in all accounts. Multiple people from our speaking engagement not only left inspired but have asked us for her contact information for her to do future engagements with them. Andrea is a world class adventurer as much as she is a great person.
