On fear of aging: Live in the now and enjoy it to the fullest. Age is just a number. When I was 20, I feared 30. Now that I’m over 40 I see how young I was at 30. But I would not go back!

Why she loves her 40s: I’m mature enough to enjoy everything I ever dreamed of achieving and youthful enough to enjoy it. So far it’s been the best time of my life.

On staying fit and healthy: Eating as healthy as possible and spending time with the family, but especially in solitude. Oh, and sleeping a lot! I love to sleep.

Do Latinas have a harder time aging? Not only Latinas, Anglos too. Our society is superficial and absurd. The social pressure and consumerism, plus low self-esteem are all reasons for this.

Why she’s fabulous at 40+? Because that’s how I feel!
