"If you're determined to do it and there's a way to do it, I don't care what anybody says, you do it!" I really needed to hear this. Thank you so much for being so authentic!

DeSimone video: Such a caring woman. Like others have commented, her love and devotion for her family is touching. To know that it brings such joy to her to watch her children and grandchildren thrive in the US, is beautiful to see. "Never give up, and work hard..." something we all need to be reminded.

As Mia's Dad, Filomena's son, and Lisa's brother I am could not be more proud of them all. Thank you, Lincoln Financial Group, for making this video possible as I showed it in class when talking about "What makes a great leader". My mom is a great leader, you all know Lisa is a great leader, and with any luck I am sure Mia will be a great leader, too.

This is a great interview! What a tribute to self reliance. All she wanted was an opportunity. She is so proud of what her children have achieved. A wonderful story and Mia is a good interviewer.
