The people we do not see, we see more. I did not see the importance of things, I saw the physical. For me darkness became light, “Santos said. The event was also attended by Carlos Montúfar, rector of the USFQ: “I remember when you arrived at the university to ask if you could resume your career. The first thing I did was talk to all the teachers and here you are now after 20 years, she recalled.
A life without limits” gathers all the experiences and reflections of María Cecilia, before and after the accident that, in her words, only made her lose her sight.

My life is spectacular, now more than before, she said.
I can not earn all the honors if I’m here, it’s thanks to my uncle Abelardo, he edited it from start to finish. He found the publisher and soon we will go to Miami for a tour, she said. The event ended with the signing of the book and a toast celebrating and inviting everyone to buy the work of overcoming the artist.
