Dr. Carmen Lopez struggled with financial difficulties growing up, which delayed her college education, but that didn't stop her from successfully achieving a PHD degree. She came to Qatar as a scientist, but her love for reading and writing encouraged her to write a series of short stories about her Puerto Rican culture, but one different from others—these stories don't focus on violence and anger as is the case for most books, but rather gives a positive touch to human struggles. Dr. Carmen believes that's what her country needs as it recovers from the violent hurricane that struck it this year. To find out when the book comes out and learn about her courage, grit and perseverance, listen in.
