Today’s American lives in Texas by way of Puerto Rico.
Shayla Rivera is a lady of many talents. She’s a rocket scientist and worked on the shuttle and space station programs with NASA. She’s a comedian, and I met her as the emcee of an awards show I produced a few years back. She’s also a professor and teaches at Texas A&M University.
You'll enjoy her humor and no-nonsense views on success and "being in charge" of your life.
A quote to watch for: “When you make someone laugh the gap between you and that person just gets narrower and narrower. If you laugh together then you realize you can be together.”
