What brings me the most joy? “I would have to say watching my family grow and having good time with one another.  Life is so short, and it is like opening a gift because you never know when the good Lord is going to give you a call.”   

What word of advice would you like to give to kids today? “I would have to say no matter what you are going through or what has happened to you – do not let that stop you from living your life.  Remember that life is something that you live once.  Have fun; make something of yourself, live life to the fullest and live with no regrets because we only live once. “

Cynthia can be reached at the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Charitable Organization’s offices at 7473 S. Taa Voo’o and by telephone at (520) 308-5736, or through email at cynthia@yaquicharity.org.  She is often providing outreach to the Pascua Yaqui communities, letting members know that we area there and providing information to members on how to access the resources of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Charitable Organization.
