Written By: Dr. Jaime G. Raygoza

In an uplifting episode of Finding the Unicorn in You, host Dr. Jaime G. Raygoza interviews Viviana Huerta, a nonprofit consultant radiating positivity. Despite childhood poverty, Viviana shines brightly, using her past to uplift others facing hardship. Her warmth and wisdom reveal the sparkling unicorn spirit.

Overcoming Adversity:

Raised along the Mexico border, Viviana’s family struggled financially but instilled a strong work ethic. As a child, she sold plants at flea markets to help pay bills. Viviana was the first in her family to attend college, taking out loans to also support her parents. These early challenges gave her deep empathy for those in need.

Spreading Joy Through Song:

While directing a shelter during a migrant crisis, Viviana started each stressful day by singing upbeat songs to lift spirits. Her bubbly personality and refusal to be hardened by trauma inspired both staff and clients. Viviana emphasizes that though life is difficult, each new day offers renewed chances for joy.

Valuing Community and Learning:

Viviana cherishes openness – to ask for help when needed and remain teachable. She believes in empowering others, not hoarding knowledge. Viviana finds unicorns in those who give back while staying humble, and who pour wisdom into the next generation.

Defining Success Her Way:

Like her mother, Viviana marches to the beat of her own drum. She recognizes cultural pressures to conform but chooses authenticity. Viviana measures accomplishments not by money but by uplifting individual lives. Her light shines from within.

Unicorn Lesson:

The key takeaway from Viviana is that unicorns know there’s beauty in every new day. Spread joy through adversity. Lift up your community. Measure success by how many lives you touch, not societal standards. Let your light shine.
