The adventure of Gaby

Gaby is a sales support employee at A Beautiful Story. She turned her life around and moved from Mexico to the Netherlands. Her story keeps inspiring us: stay true to yourself and follow your dreams.  

Lessons full of love

"I grew up in Mexico. My parents were both entrepreneurs, so I didn't get a traditional Mexican upbringing. As a child, I learned that I could become whatever I wanted. My mother was an engineer, a full-time mother of three and she ran her own business. My father, a true salesman, was never afraid to be himself. The beliefs of my parents had a big impact on me as a child. Their lessons will stick with me.”

Change of heart

"For me, Dare to be you means facing your fears, understanding where they come from and moving on. In Mexico, I had it all: a loving family, friends, a nice flat, a car and my own business. In 2019, during a backpacking trip in the Netherlands, I instantly fell in love with the country, so I started looking for a way to make it my home.

In 2020, I got a Dutch scholarship. I sold everything and left Mexico. Now, four years later, I am grateful and very happy with the life I’ve built here. Both Mexico and the Netherlands feel like home."

Follow your dreams

"Doing something new can be terrifying, but if you look at life as an adventure, the right opportunity will come knocking on your door. Don't hold back, stay true to yourself. Today is the day to pursue your dreams."
