The Wonderful Journey of Life
In Buenos Aires, Argentina, my life was good. Still, a desire to see the world burned within me, and I had to follow it. So, in 2011, I left everything behind, and I moved to New Zealand, where I lived for three years, then moved to Australia, where I got my diploma in business, then I travelled around Southwest Asia, and finally back to South America.
In 2016 I moved to Winnipeg, but my goal was to live in British Columbia. I had been working as a senior travel specialist, and I requested to be transferred to Vancouver in 2019.
Last March, COVID-19 appeared and drastically affected the travel industry.
Everything changed, including my job.
I knew I had to start thinking outside the box and do something different. One night, out of the blue, an idea came to my mind. Open the first online store in British Columbia selling Latin American products.
On July 4th, 2020, I opened my business called “La Bomba Latina,” where I sell and deliver exclusive Latin American products. Most of these products have never been available in British Columbia before now.
The business is doing great, and I feel so proud to make people happy in a time of uncertainty by providing them with the delicious foods and products they were missing from their own countries.
