A full mane of dark hair surrounds her ample smile and keen eyes, which
project a passion for life and people. Luisa Valenzuela carries herself with
confidence and determination; when she enters a room, her presence is no-
ticed and recognized. She is constantly observing her immediate and dis-
tant surroundings, noting every detail, as would a painter or a photogra-
pher. She preserves the soul of a child, curious and free-spirited, yet she is
intensely serious, intelligent, and committed to her ideals.
