How often do you climb trees? Not as often as I think is good for my heart. The last time I was in a tree might have been in middle school. I climbed a big willow tree in front of my house.

So were you a tomboy? I guess I was a tomboy. I never really thought about it. I played whiffle ball and rode my dirt bike.

Do you like working in Hendersonville? I live in Asheville, and some days I would love to live in my idealistic bubble of Asheville. But the work that I do is most necessary in Hendersonville.

What’s that? I work with the Latino community [at El Centro Communitario, the Latino Advocacy Coalition]. I work for them, I should say. At this time, it feels like a very important issue, as everyone is dealing with the challenges of globalization and immigration. I feel very good about being able to work at a center that promotes inclusion for all people… My mother is from Colombia. This work connects me to my roots.

Dedication, character, hard work, perseverence, kindness, competence, energy and vision... just a few of the words and concepts that come to my mind when I think of my friend, Carolina. This woman is a rock star and she is what makes a community a community. "Good" follows souls like hers around to see where it should rest. Rock on, Carolina!
