El Presentador de Noticias y Ganador de Premios Emmy Jorge Ramos Reflexiona en un Nuevo Libro sobre sus 30 años de carrera Periodistica.

Sin miedo será lanzado simultáneamente en español y en inglés el 15 de marzo de 2016. 

SIN MIEDO Jorge Ramos

Celebra, un sello editorial del Grupo Editorial Berkley, parte de Penguin Random House, lanzará un nuevo libro del premiado periodista y presentador de noticias Jorge Ramos. Lo anterior fue anunciado el día de hoy por el vicepresidente de Celebra y editor Raymond García. SIN MIEDO: lecciones de rebeldes será publicado simultáneamente en español y en inglés el 15 de marzo de 2016.

Jorge Ramos, el ganador de premios Emmy, columnista nacional y autor de diversos libros éxitos de venta, es reconocido por su labor al frente de los noticieros de Univision desde 1986. Además de la edición nocturna del Noticiero Univision, Jorge Ramos también conduce Al Punto, el semanario de la cadena televisiva sobre asuntos de interés público. Es, además, conductor en Fusion, una sociedad conjunta de ABC y Univision, y escribe semanalmente una columna que es distribuida por la agencia de prensa del New York Times. Jorge Ramos fue noticia recientemente después de haber sido expulsado de una conferencia de prensa de Donald Trump en Iowa luego de que confrontara al candidato a la presidencia acerca de su postura con respecto a la inmigración.

Ramos es ampliamente reconocido por su forma franca y sin limitaciones de entrevistar a líderes mundiales, titanes de los negocios, legisladores democráticos y dictadores que amenazan con destruir esos principios. En SIN MIEDO, Ramos recupera entrevistas pioneras realizadas durante sus más de treinta años de carrera periodística. Al relatar entrevistas con personalidades de la talla del presidente Barack Obama, la ministra de la Corte Suprema de Justicia Sonia Sotomayor, Spike Lee, Barbara Walters y Fidel Castro, entre otros, comparte algunas historia por primera vez y ofrece una perspectiva única acerca de temas que afectan al mundo contemporáneo. Franco y a veces controvertido, Ramos arroja luz sobre los asuntos que importan a los hispanos, el mayor grupo minoritario de este país. Estos asuntos sin duda alguna influirán no sólo en los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales de 2016 sino también en el futuro de Estados Unidos.

“Ser periodista es hoy tan intenso como lo era cuando comencé, y me entusiasma poder hacerlo todos los días. Durante treinta años he conocido a las personalidades más interesantes de todas partes del mundo. Cada una me ha enseñado algo, acerca de mí y acerca del mundo en el que vivimos”, dijo Ramos.

La revista Time incluyó a Jorge Ramos en su lista de las “100 personas de mayor influencia” y lo calificó como uno de “los veinticinco hispanos más influyentes en Estados Unidos”. People en Español lo hizo parte de su primera lista de los 50 hispanos más influyentes. Nacido en la Ciudad de México, Jorge Ramos vive en Estados Unidos desde hace más de veinticinco años y aparece con regularidad en las cadenas de televisión más grandes dando voz a los derechos de los inmigrantes.

I was invited by Author Maritere Rodriguez Bellas to contribute to her recently launched site on parenting and education where I’ll be publishing some of my content in the college age / millennials section. I invite all of you to check out her site and I will also cross promote my posts here for all of you.

Here’s my first of many posts on there and I hope you all enjoy the read!

Nowadays with different types of technologies and with social media taking the lead in the way we communicate with others I still prefer talking to my parents over the phone at least once a day. Believe it or not I love hearing their voices because it shortens the distance and the time we go without seeing each other. I guess I am corny! Lol

Yes, I am part of the millennial generation that has often been categorized as being narcissists, needy, self-centered and entitled, but I have always strived to not let those negative stereotypes define my character. I have also heard from different people that we have become the generation that doesn’t look back, moves-on in life and forgets about our intermediate family. They are very wrong and I know that doesn’t apply to me!

1901705_399818236821924_976411935_n

I don’t see anything wrong with moving-on in life and seeking a better future for myself. As a matter of fact my parents always motivated me into doing bigger and better things than they were ever able to accomplish. But one thing I know for sure is that I have never forgotten them or left them behind like some people have told me they have done with their own parents. As a matter of fact I am very connected to my parents.

As an adult I don’t run everything by my parents anymore, but I do like to share with them my lifestyle, whereabouts, goals and struggles. I love hearing their “consejos” (tips) on how to manage around a variety of different situations. They always have the best advice. Wouldn’t you say?

I grew up in a small 1-bedroom apartment where we made 7 people fit – 2 adults and 5 children so staying connected and always in close communication was the norm. As I grew older my parents always made sure that they knew what my siblings and I were up to and kept us aligned to our goals.

At 17 years old I moved out of my parent’s home and never returned to live there, but I always visit them. I live six hours away by car, and there’s not one day that I go without talking to them over the phone. I feel guilt and shame when I do not call them. It’s an oddly interesting feeling and very much a cultural one.

When there are so many other avenues of communication and technologies why do I choose to talk to my parents daily the old-fashioned way via a phone call? The answer is simple. I think my parents deserve some quality time and undivided attention so that we can catch-up and let each other know how we’re doing.

Yes, I see many of my friends send a short and, sometimes cold text message to their folks, email or even use social media to reach out to their parents once in a while or when they need their parents for something.  But, I can’t relate to that way of communicating with my parents.

I understand we live very busy lives, but honestly we can’t drop everything we’re doing and make a simple and short phone call to the two individuals that brought us into this world?  Sorry, I don’t mean to sound judgmental, I am just stating a fact.

Humbly, I know of people who don’t communicate with their parents and have forgotten about them completely. Some of those people are not part of the millennial generation and often times are not Latino. Though I respect everyone’s decision of how often they communicate with their parents, I wouldn’t forgive myself if I went days without hearing from them. Plus even over the phone I would get scolded for not calling them. Yes, still at a distance and as an adult my parents try to discipline me. I wonder if it’s a Latino thing. Lol

I strongly believe that out of respect and because I honor them both so much there is daily communication. Typically, my conversation with my mother is in Spanish and with my father I tend to speak English because I love hearing his thick accent and he enjoys practicing his second-language skills.

I enjoy my Spanish conversation with my mother because I get to polish up on my Spanish and have fluidity in all my phrases and words. Plus, there are some words that don’t translate well into English and speaking Spanish makes me feel as I am right next to her. Listening to Spanish from my mom is warm and comforting. On the other hand, I enjoy talking English with my father because I get to teach him new words that are not part of his vocabulary and he gets to sharpen his second-language skills.

10376184_446971038773310_2625088378321481696_n

My parents taught me many lessons in life and without a doubt one of the most important ones was staying united and always looking out for the “familia” because at the end of the day they are all you have in this journey. I can’t picture myself not knowing about them for a day and I am thankful I still have them around for some great talks and laughs.

I don’t think we’ll ever simply communicate via a Facebook or text message. I just wouldn’t feel appropriate.

As a Latino millennial, I understand that there’s a lot of different family dynamics and situations that exist in one’s family that can result in a lack of communication, and even an estranged relationship, but for me since I have my parents alive and healthy I cannot grasp the idea of not talking to them daily.

How often do you talk or spend time with your parents?

Saludos mileniales,

Gustavo

Nowadays any office setting job revolves around you sitting in front of a computer screen and getting things done from there and occasionally picking up the phone or jumping into video conference meetings. Though, don’t let these impersonal interactions set you two steps backwards in your professional development. You can do more!

Take action in some easy steps to really help you get ahead in your career because the workplace is constantly changing and you need to change with the times, be innovative to stand out and simply stay ahead of the game.

I know everyone lives such busy lifestyles that participating in a developmental seminar isn’t even a question right now. I get it, but I have put together some easy steps that will help your career today. I’ve come up with these suggestions after working in non-profit for three years and in corporate for a year. Hope they are useful to you as I am sure they would have been to me if I ever stumbled across them years ago.

Be Confident: You may feel intimated at the beginning of a career change, promotion or taking on a new project because you don’t know the office lingo, some projects will be a lot of work, everything is new to you and simply there are things that you are not used to. But, guess what you get to be confident in your performance, roll up your sleeves, get to work and NEVER show you’re intimidated.

Remember that others in the company or even in your department started at the same place you’re in years ago and look at how far they’ve made it. Over the years they’ve learned to master the art or act as if they know everything. There’s a perfect saying that goes here: “Fake it until you make it.” I am not supporting fakeness, but do the extra work and learn your responsibilities so that you become a master.

person-playing-with-pc-on-the-desck_318-29512

Don’t Hide: It’s true that some people are programmed to sit and stay stuck like glue 95% of their work day to their desk chair, but don’t fall into that trap. If time and resources permits get-up meet people in other departments and introduce yourself to others and especially executive level personnel. I don’t need to add why. It’s very important that you talk business with others, but once there’s a level of trust talk to them about personal matters and show that you care.

Work Ethic: One thing I learned from my immigrant father to this country was to be a hard worker and exemplify work ethic. People will remember you for doing the right thing instead of cutting slack. Go the extra mile that very few people seem to do because you’ll stand out. Show your high level of responsibility at all times so that you can always keep the company functioning at its peak.

Don’t feel Intimated: Oh, I said that already, but I figured I remind you again because a lot of your performance relies on you feeling capable of doing the job or not.

Value your Contributions: Among a pool of applicants for the job or new project you were the chosen one so don’t underestimate your creativity and speak up. Suggest a solution to a problem. Present a new idea. Prepare to be shot down, but go ahead and try. People will admire your initiative. Just like there’s no dumb question there’ no dumb idea and especially after it is fleshed out and developed.

Ask Questions: Don’t be shy, start asking away and especially when you are new to the job. People value you more when asking questions rather than committing the same mistakes. Save others time, energy and money by asking questions and making sure that you understand your role.

Find Mentors: Seek people that will help you move forward in and out of the company, have allies and people that will speak up about your qualifications and personality.

Research: Often times we have a “to do” list of items that needs to get done during a week, month or quarter and sometimes there’s some down time in the day that could be used wisely. During that extra time do research on things that you need more clarification on and go above and beyond. Your manager/supervisor will notice your extra effort instantly.

new

Don’t get offended: Don’t take things personal in the workspace. Sometimes you need to learn how to build a thick skin with certain people and understand that not everyone will be your best friend at work.

Don’t slack off: If you’ve got deadlines to meet it’s important that you prioritize your time. There’s a team of people that are depending on you and your work and there’s nothing more annoying than waiting for someone to complete their job after they’ve had days, weeks or even months to do the work.

Punctuality: Don’t get too confident after being on the job for months or years and think that you can start arriving 10-15 minutes late. It doesn’t work that way. Arrive to work before your manager or supervisor even if it is 30 seconds before. Life happens and sometimes you may be late to work, but always communicate to your supervisor.

Take a class: You can never stop learning and there’s never enough information on new things for you to know. Expand your horizons and learn a new trick, lesson or skill that demonstrates that you can keep up with the rest of the team.

Exercise and eat right: When you are healthy you consequently have a more positive outlook on life therefore your performance on the job is at its prime. There’s nothing more important than being and looking healthy.

Don’t expect: Stop expecting others to manage your career. If you just sit there, working hard and smiling at all the right people, you’re probably wondering why you didn’t get picked for that special project, or why you didn’t get the promotion you think you’ve earned. You have to speak up and let people know how you want your career to go.

Smile: Be approachable. I cannot say this enough because nowadays everyone seems to go about their own business and do not know the first name of the people on their floor although they see each other every day. That is sad! We’re not robots, we’re human beings. A smile doesn’t cost a thing so give it away to others and I guarantee you others will remember you and the positive aura you project.

Take a vacation: You know how you go on a vacation and when you return you are all full of energy and creativity? Well, that’s necessary and you need to get the heck out of the office. You need some time off to be your best. Remember, it’s just as much a part of your compensation package as your salary is.

The above suggestions are recommended by the experience that I’ve had and from talking to peers in a variety of different industries.

Remember that chances are that many times you are going to be unclear about something so remember to ask questions so that you don’t do dumb mistakes that will make you feel worse later.

Good luck to you on your next job, new project or simply start exceling on the opportunity you currently have. And if you feel you are hitting a plateau put some of my easy to follow steps to use.

I recently communicated with Sabrina Enriquez a student at the University of Southern California and the author and creator for the Student Resource Guide that was published on the Undergraduate Student Government website at USC. Honestly when I learned about the guide being published it gave me the good kind of chills that this made it out on a USC website because I know first-hand the struggles that any undocumented student goes through while attending higher education at that university. I applaud Sabrina for taking the lead on this project, which I foresee clearing-up many doubts and questions that some students may have.

The first version of the guide is officially live. To my understanding, there will be revisions to it to include more updated resources.

Take a look here:

http://usg.usc.edu/undocumented-student-resource-guide/ 

The U.S. Department of Education released a Resource Guide to help schools, colleges, teachers, and other personnel support the college and career success of undocumented youth in secondary and post-secondary settings! This is a huge victory for all undocumented students & families, and organizations that made this happen. Remember that ALL students can go to college, regardless of immigration status. Download the Resource Guide here: http://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/focus/supporting-undocumented-youth.pdf

Ella es una de los chefs favoritos de los Estados Unidos quien ofrece a todos los entusiastas y fanáticos de los tacos una nueva y saludable manera de preparar esta deliciosa comida típica de América Latina!  Nuevos Tacos Clásicos disponible a nivel nacional.

Nacida en Venezuela, García es conocida como un personaje de la televisión debido a sus múltiples participaciones en series como “The Biggest Loser”, donde fue jefe de cocina, como juez e inversionista en el show de NBC “America’s Next Great Restaurant “, y además concursante en “Top Chef Masters”, juez de “Top Chef” y ” Guy’s Grocery Games “, así como de “Top Chef Estrellas”, Sazón con Lorena García, Lorena En Su Salsa, y en El Mejor de los Peores. Lorena además es propietaria de restaurantes, creo el famoso menú Cantina para Taco Bell en el 2012 y recientemente lanza la colección de artículos de cocina, que llevan su propio nombre, Lorena Bella Kitchen Collection, una línea de utensilios de cocina que vende a través de HSN, además de ser autor del libro Nuevos Clásicos Latinos.

En Nuevos Tacos Clásicos, Lorena García explora y reinventa no sólo el taco tradicional, pero también otras delicias de Latinoamérica como lo son las arepas, tamales, las tostadas y los nachos; creando fusiones únicas Latinas así como no Latinas. García de-construye el tradicional taco y se centra en el único tema que es fundamental para este tipo de alimentos de las calles de México, Venezuela, Ecuador, Puerto Rico y Cuba: el concepto de la comida en un vehículo. Con este tema en mente, García construye el taco como base, y muestra a cualquier persona como poder crear esos tacos paso a paso.

“Tan simple como puedan parecer un taco, una arepa o un tamal, contienen más que un conjunto de ingredientes. Transmiten los grandes intangibles que distinguen nuestras historias, las notas de sabor de una ciudad en particular, los métodos de cocción de una región, para no mencionar los recuerdos compartidos de una familia… Los platos cuentan historias. Y a veces, esas historias hacen eco de los ritmos de un lugar o de una cultura en particular, en tanto que otras veces hacen eco de una mezcla de ritmos”, tomado de la introducción de Nuevos Tacos Clásicos de Lorena García.

A partir de la base, que es el maíz que se hace en un taco, una arepa, un sope, una empanada, o incluso un tamal ella luego se traslada a la gran variedad de rellenos y adiciones sin dejar atrás deliciosas recetas de acompañamientos perfectos. Con más de 100 recetas que incluye salsas, rellenos a base de proteína o vegetales, tortillas para tacos así como envueltos de maíz, hacen de este libro la perfecta variedad de platos tipos Latinos.

Dentro de este libro también encontraras coloridas fotos y fáciles pasó a paso de aquellas recetas que te sirven para tu día a día o para cuando tengas invitados en casa. Dependiendo de lo que la persona desea, la ocasión o los ingredientes disponibles, García le enseña al lector como dominar los elementos básicos del taco, y les muestra que existen infinitas posibilidades de mix-and-match o combinaciones con todos los alimentos. Si te apetece un plato tradicional de América Latina (como El clásico taco de concha dura o los Nachos de Carne Mechada) o un platillo tradicional (como la hamburguesa de arepa con patatas de aguacate o famoso pescado y patatas fritas / Fish & Chips), siempre hay algo nuevo que disfrutar en Nuevos Tacos Clásicos.

Puedes conseguir Nuevos Tacos Clásicos en todas tus librerías del país y también a través de:

Kaiser Permanente comparte algunos mitos y realidades sobre estas vacunas:

 

Mito: Al vacunarte contra la gripe, te va a dar gripe.

Realidad: No es posible que te de gripe al vacunarte. Sin embargo, cuando tu cuerpo está en

proceso de fortalecer sus defensas, podrías experimentar una pequeña reacción después de

recibir la vacuna, como dolores en el cuerpo o un poco de fiebre por uno o dos días. Podrías

también experimentar por coincidencia síntomas de otros virus que se parecen a la gripe.

 

Mito: La gripe no es algo serio.

Realidad: Cada año muere un promedio de 36 mil personas en los Estados Unidos a causa de la

gripe. La mayoría de estas muertes podrían ser prevenidas al vacunarse.

 

Mito: Podrías morirte al vacunarte contra la gripe.

Realidad: Es muy raro el tener una reacción peligrosa a la vacuna de la gripe. Consulta con tu

doctor antes de recibir la vacuna de la gripe, especialmente si has tenido el síndrome Guillain-

Barré o si alguna vez has tenido una reacción alérgica severa a los huevos, o a dosis previas de

vacunas de la gripe.

 

Mito: Puedes esperar a ver si hay una epidemia, y si es así, colocarte la vacuna de la gripe.

Realidad: Usualmente tu cuerpo puede tardar dos semanas o más para desarrollar anticuerpos. Es

por eso que recomendamos que te vacunes antes de que comience la temporada de la gripe.

 

Mito: Las vacunas de la gripe son para los viejos.

Realidad: Todos los adultos y niños deberían de vacunarse contra la gripe. Incluso los adultos y

niños sanos pueden contagiarse de la gripe. Aprende por qué es importante que te vacunes

contra la gripe.

 

Mito: No necesitas una vacuna de la gripe si ya te vacunaste el año pasado.

Realidad: Los anticuerpos que posee la vacuna de la gripe dejan de tener efecto después de un

año. Y las versiones de influenza que causan las enfermedades varían cada año. Si no has sido

vacunado contra los tipos de virus que se esperan para este año, tanto tú, como las personas

que te rodean, tienen un algo riesgo de contagiarse de la gripe. Vacúnate contra la gripe

pronto, para que te protejas antes de que comience la temporada de gripes.

 

Además de vacunarte contra la gripe, Kaiser Permanente comparte abajo algunas sugerencias

para protegerte a ti y a otros:

 

 Cubre tu nariz y tu boca con un pañuelo cuando tosas o estornudes. Tose o estornuda

en la parte superior de la manga de tu camisa o en la parte interior del codo, en vez de

en tus manos.

 

 Lava tus manos con frecuencia usando agua y jabón o con un desinfectante con alcohol,

especialmente después de que estornudes o tosas.

 

Kaiser Permanente ofrece vacunas de la gripe gratis para sus miembros, para más información

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Dime Media and Coca-Cola. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

A person’s name is very important because it defines their personality, but a last name, I think, holds so much more significance and value because it carries an origin, heritage and will forever leave a legacy behind for our younger family members.

#AVivirLA which embodies living and celebrating life aligned very well with Coca-Cola’s initiative of embracing Latino pride in their family name and culture. It’s neat that Coca-Cola saw the value their products bring to important moments in Hispanic families’ lives and that it wants to continue making new memories with us. This is why Coca-Cola is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, to unite families through their last name and empower them to share the story of why their family name makes them unique and #OrgullosoDeSer as they share their #[InsertLastName].

Worth the wait!

My last name “Gutierrez” is a well-known and popular one that dates back to centuries ago in Spain and although I don’t recall being told that I have Spanish ancestry I am sure I do. My last name comes from my paternal grandfather. I’ve always been told that I could pass for being from Spain and must have some European blood in me and people are probably correct, but I haven’t confirmed this.

My family [Gutierrez]!

My last name gives me a lot of pride and ever since I can remember I recall pronouncing my name with thick Spanish accent. I dislike making it sound Anglo because it loses its value and heritage. I am a believer of being proud of where you come from and it all starts with your last name. I love being Mexican-American. Love it!

Very nice! #ShareACoke

My grandfather and father came to the states in the mid 1960’s to work in the agricultural fields of California. My grandfather and father were season workers and would spend 6 months in the states and 6 months in Mexico with the family. I am originally from a small ranch in Zacatecas called “Los Reales”, but was born in a nearby town called Jerez de Garcia Salinas about one hour away from my parent’s ranch.

Showing off my #Gutierrez Coca Cola swag!

I was born in Mexico and in 1992 as a very young child I came to the states for the first time with my parents and 4 siblings. My father has always been a great source of inspiration for me because of his hard work and ethics, self-less soul, humbleness and desire to give his family a very comfortable lifestyle within his reach. I admire my father very much and it’s rewarding to know that I can share that with him nowadays!

Coca-Cola has always been a strong component in our “fiestas” (gatherings) such as weddings, baptisms, birthdays and it only makes sense that they are making Latinos feel prouder than ever about their heritage by celebrating one of our biggest sources of pride – our last names.

KwTK7z7o_tdou1FYVw0m1cS2MjqRNW34BiujrG74UBk

A special anecdote that I share with my siblings while we lived in Zacatecas was visiting the nearby “tiendita de abarrotes” (convenient store) and buying “coquitas” (small bottles of Coca-Cola) and some “birote” (French bread). We would sit outside the store and pour the Coca-Cola inside the bread and drink it from there. Then we would eat the soggy bread with Coca-Cola flavor. It was delicious!

California weather, palm trees and an Ice Cold Coca Cola!

To start off this campaign, Coca-Cola created a unique short film that embraces the feelings of pride that come from our last names. Families in the film share their individual stories and history, and display their pride by applying a temporary tattoo of their last name using the Coca-Cola Heritage Tattoo can. I enjoyed the tribute to all Latinos because it definitely transported me back to Los Reales, Zacatecas and evoked a nostalgic feeling for my ranch, humble home and family members left behind in Mexico. This video made take a few minutes off my busy schedule and remind me of where I come from so that I have a better vision of where I want to go in life. Thank you Coca-Cola.

Although the tattoo cans are not available for purchase because they were only created for promotional purposes for the video, families can visit www.coke.com/OrgulloseDeSer to purchase a “Share a Coke” contour bottle personalized with your last name to share that pride with the world. It’s obvious we’re Hispanics and we bring so much flavor and richness to any area that we’re a part of, wouldn’t you all agree?

While going through the online experience of searching for my own personalized bottle I realized my last name is very unique and would not be available in stores so that made me feel extra special and I had to create a virtual bottle that would then get delivered to my home. Visit the “Share a Coke” site to create your personalized contour bottle.

I loved receiving my personalized “Share a Coke” bottle that I am having second thoughts about opening it because I want to save it for the longest time possible as a keepsake and quick reminder of my prideful culture, origin, identity and family journey. It will sit on the kitchen island so that I see it every day and especially on those rough days when life throws curveballs to know how far my family and I have come.

Siempre me gusta presentarles herramientas para que vivan más saludables y en esta ocasión les quiero platicar de “Reta tu vida” cuál es el más reciente libro del entrenador Jose Fernández. Este es su segundo libro despues de que su primer libro “Salvando vidas” recibiera mucho reconocimiento y éxito.

Fernández es un nutricionista del deporte certificado por la Asociación Internacional de Fitness, entrenador personal de las estrellas y columnista de People en Español. José fue colaborador de nutrición en los programas de televisión Despierta América y Nuestra Belleza Latina en Univisión.
9780698185012

Cuando yo estaba en la universidad escuchaba mucho a Fernández a través de la radio ya que un proyecto me introdujo a él y me interesaron mucho las recomendaciones y retos que siempre tenía para su público. Su programa de radio “Sanísimo” era uno que tenía mucho éxito con la comunidad latina porque proveía información educativa e útil para sus seguidores. Les presentaba diferentes formas saludables para conquistar sus metas de vida.

Después de ya no escucharlo por la radio lo empecé a seguirlo en sus redes sociales para mantenerme informado y recibir sus consejos ya que les sacaba mucho provecho en mi propio estilo de vida. En Instagram y Facebook publica tips y menús detallados que contienen deliciosas recetas que te harán olvidar que estas a dieta.

“Reta Tu Vida” ya está a la venta a nivel nacional y cuenta con un prólogo del famoso Ismael Cala. En el libro el entrenador te invita a retarte como nunca antes lo has hecho para transformar tu vida y adoptar un estilo de vida saludable.
