Alicia Dujovne Ortiz is unequivocally a free spirit. Her eyes meet ours with
frank sincerity; her smile is wide, earnest, and engaging. She has the gaze
of someone who has lived a lot and suffered a lot, yet has retained the joyful
soul of the young at heart. Her voice springs forth like a waterfall flowing
gently and rhythmically as she speaks; her laughter is loud and carefree.
