As a young teen living alone a foreign country, she faced many struggles, only to make her the strong woman she is today and build her never give up attitude.

Edith has been in sales her whole life, from selling avocados on the streets in her hometown in Mexico, to selling electronics, cellphones, radio and now television. She loves being in the media business, because it gives her the opportunity to help others help themselves.
