Cecilia is an educator, business owner and writer, and a late bloomer in life -- from becoming a mother to learning to swim to writing. The common thread to these (relatively) late achievements? Confidence. Sometimes it takes a few years or 10 or 20 to really develop it.

She's the proud mother of an early blooming 8 year old and she founded and runs an international consultancy with her husband, with whom she has been 24/7 over the last 11 years. Her writing has appeared in various metropolitan news publications, Literary Mama, Mamapedia, and Bonbon Break. She writes about motherhood, marriage and self on her blog Only You.
