Intro: Music is playing El Columpia


Valeria Llamas: My name is Valeria Llamas. I am 19 years old and my profession is entrepreneur. I am a business owner.


Lede: However, Valeria Llamas is not your typical business owner at the age of nineteen she owns 5 catering trucks, 1 store, and a new chain of restaurants that are coming soon. Miss Llamas was kind enough to give me a tour of her store.


Nat Sounds: El Columpia Playing, Chopping, and Frying


Voiceover: …And upon entering the store I can instanstly hear the music blasting out and I also see workers cheerfully chopping meat in the back corner of the store. And as with any store, there were chips and drinks lined up in a pretty little row, which is where I happened to come across Eduardo Medina; one of the local customers and long time friends of Valeria Llamas.


Ambient Sounds: A Worker is running the cash register, The Song Royal is faintly playing the background.


Lalo Medina: We connected right away. And when she helped me, you know, explained to me about places to go around here and um… And Just in general of what she does for a living.  She’s very nice and very polite and has great hospilatlity. It’s just arms wide open and welcome me in. Uh… The store itself is amazing and the prices they’re reasonable and the food here is great.. I LOVE IT. It’s real authentic Mexican Food.


Joy McWhorter: Valeria does not see herself in the food industry permanently. She has greater ambitions to pursue, which is evident in the following:


Valeria Llamas: …To tell you the truth, I’m so tired of business even though I can be good at it. It’s not what I want to puruse in life. I want to become a politican. I want to change something for people; not just for myself.


Joy McWhorter: Most importantly, Valeria Llamas has this to say to women who also aspire to own their own businesses and to achieve greater things.


Valeria Llamas: You only once. Make sure you live it to the fullest of it.


Closing: I’m Joy McWhorter and thanks for listening. El Gallito
